As per other regional sections on PH, here is a spotted thread for Middle East

Obviously we are fairly spoiled here for exotica but anything you spot that is out of the ordinary shall we say, along with any awesome machines.

Just seen blitzing through Media City whilst i was having a smoke, a brand new 997 GT3RS.

Dark grey with red decals and red wheels, spoiler big enough to land a plane on!

Sounded about as good as 911 can do I reckon.

Sweeeeet

1962 Mercedes-Benz limo. Sitting in Upgrade Tyres in Barsha last night. Utterly gorgeous in gloss black.

Bahrain's good for the odd classic Yank every now and then. smile

A few months back when I was in Dubai I spotted a (non BMW) red Mini copper down by DIMC as I was leaving, not a car you see very often in this part of the world.

Yesturday I parked in/under the Walk in the marina next to a old Jag XJS which was cool.

Oh and a few weeks back here in Bahrain a red Enzo and the new 458 biggrin

re the proper Mini, anyone seen the one that is parked on the Walk with a for sale sign on it, it is yellow.

Think he/she wants about 50k for it!!

A friend's Alfa SZ will be featured in The National this Saturday (and was in this month's classic car column in Car Middle East). He's also a fellow giallo ginestra integrale owner! (I think the 'grale will also be featured on Sat).

Now that is something special!

Any recent car, however expensive really doesn't float my boat in Dubai anymore. Just go to the entrance of any of the big hotels and most car enthusiasts would get a semi.

That said, it seems that most of the local owned stuff is in London at the moment.

Crikey Ian. Where are you sitting at the moment? In the Sultan of Brunei's garage?

That said, I'm with Asterix on this one. Modern cars leave me a bit cold these days. Clearly I have turned into an old fogey. Was watching the Irish Rally a few days back on Motors TV in the UK. Love those old mark 2 Escorts - desperately want one now but am mechanically inept.

Apologies for the digression - as you were...

Couldn't agree more, mate. I'm much more interested in seeing a genuine classic on the roads than the almost ubiquitous supercars that you see over here.

Having said all that, this is the only place that I've seen a Veryon in the flesh. Two actually - one on the move (absolutely crawling along Al Wasl road one morning) and another parked up outside the Dubai Marina Yacht Club a few weeks ago.

I've seen 2x McMerc SLR 722s in Dubai since I moved here. One parked in my mate's neighbour's drive (!) and the other on the back of a recovery truck!

Ok add:

1 Viper ACR

I also happen to know where there is a Ferrari Daytona and a F40

One of our old office locations was in the same building as the Lamborghini showroom and they kept cars in the basement car park.....

Such a awesome car!! Back home i was lucky enough to be taken for a spin in one which unfortunatly envolved a stint on the M27 with a lovely uphill long slip road before you get onto the motorway...... cloud9
Engine and massive supercharger behind your head but inside the cabin is was quiet, my mate who drove it said it drove just like a normal car.

The guy we know who owned it (massive PH!!) had two, a blue one and a silver one like in your pic!!

I was trying to find the owner to get him to take me for a spin it but he wasn't to be found.

Yeah it's the same engine that is in the GT500 stang, blown 5.4litre... sexual

Cruising the corniche in Doha yesterday afternoon waiting for the sun to set - SLR Mclaren, F430 x 3, R8 V10, several boggo R8's, Corvettes and Mustangs by the dozen, C63 AMG and a 2CV!

Driving home from work and taking half an hour to do 500m was never so much fun!
