The cars in dubai get loads of scratches due to fine sandparticles in the air. and most of the super cars in dubai are in the ownership of the arabs and few other wealthy. In uk a lot of asian drive flash cars which is so good to see. Makes us proud to be brit.
and...........whats your Point???

In UK you have snow and salt in the winter. Rain in the summer, speed limits, crazy traffic and lousy roads.

This thread is about appreciating the automotive taste of the people of Dubai. They could've spent their money buying gold, real-estate, stocks whatever but they choose to spend it on fine automobiles......should'nt we appreciate it as auto enthusiasts?

The current weather all over UAE is bloody hot, And I dont think Exotics still roll without the problems with the temperture!

I mean,c'mon, who's gonna drive an Enzo into a 50 C sauna!!!!

The Bugatti has 4 turbos,the worst thing for turbo'd cars is hot moist air. Humidity around here reaches the 90%'s and temperatures are always in the high 40's in the summer, so i doubt any1 would wanna drive their bugatti around here. Besides,the bugatti was delayed quite some time because of the heat problem with the turbo's,,its not an easy task keeping 4 turbo's cool...

this is nice..

avalance 650 is just phenominal, but i would still get the plain Turbo/GT2 instead considering what the avalance costs..could have a F430 and still have change left to mod the hell out of it to match the avalances performance..

Oh yes. Heck, but you could buy a Noble M12 and tune it like a madman with the money you had in the first place. Money is usually not an overwhelming issue when people buy such cars. I hope I have the same thinking and assets 10 years down the line!
