Its not like its a priceless object that one could admire. Its a 360 which has a value of no more than 70k. It should be driven not be left in a living room.

Maybe he has better cars, like an Enzo or a Veyron. This one could be a show piece just to fill up his mansion

absolutely agree...a big dim wit, this is no-class show off for you right there...there are things that cost in many multiples of this car, i mean many multiples, but he might not replace this car with it, cuz people dont know about those things, but people will always know what a ferrari is..

simple..some of the show pieces and art cost in hundreds of thousands and millions, this car is pocket change in comparison...anyhow still i think its a dumb idea..you could have made your garage and office like that and place the car there which you could take out, but other than that this is crap..

now this is what i call class (clickable)



This is the guys garage..

Say anything, guys. One thing's for sure. Arabs know how to live their lives to the fullest. If you have the money, you might as well spend it. No point just keeping it locked away. Plus Dubai has good roads and fuel is cheap too.

Cars are about to get cheaper in the UAE (as are other commodities) as the government is now contemplating delinking of the currency from the dollar....all imports have become dearer as the dollar slides and other currencies rise. According to the car dealers here there has been a 10% increase in costs simply because they paid for their cars in Euros or other currency while their currency was still = 3.69 USD. Once the currency is delinked, vehicles are expected to become even cheaper.

Yeah the garage with the 360 CS now thats what you call class,i saw that post in ferrai Chat and thought the bloke with that garage had put a lot of thought in doing it. Not just plonking a car in a living room. he hehe.
If it wasnt for migrant workers in Dubai in 70's and 80's it wouldnt be what it is today. Arabs may have wealth but they most of them are a 'few sandwhiches short of a picnic'!!! if you get my drift.

Cool

A Mercedes tuner from Dubai may have the exact vehicle you're looking for.
