The last set of pictures. A special one. The SLR in the Mercedes showroom was the first time I ever saw it, and it looked absolutely stunning. The Shelby is of great interest to us Mumbai folks these days eh? Decided to mention a couple of sweet bikes I spotted. Finishing off with one of my cousin's own beloved ride, the Pajero, my transport in Dubai A tribute to the worls best cousin lol.

Good pics flying-clicking spur!! F50 was absolutely lovely. And I also loved the 993(?) Turbo with a GT Engine Lid.

Default Car of Dubai

Since there are many TBHPians in Dubai, I thought of starting a thread for cars spotted in the region... open to all types of cars that are unique, rare or even new releases... I can start this off with some pictures I managed to get just a couple of days ago...

Not really sure. Was parked beside my brother's parking spot in the basement of their building. Was never moved from there except once, when the owner started the beast while we were entering. And man that thing growls.

Sorry for the picture quality, didn't have my camera, so had to resort to the mobile camera.

Great pictures. The second one has one car I really like (the XLR, I like it wayyyy more than the SL) and one car I really hate (the BMW X3). The Ariel Atom looks killer, although it would seem so out of place on civilian roads!

Till quite recently, my friend !! It was updated with nothing but circluar foglamps mid-life and named the Montero, and subsequently now it's been replaced by the wierd looking latest-generation Montero, which IMO is a complete blasphemy to the Pajero legacy.

And yes the Atom's street legal, although it would look ridiculous. Not that you'd be able to catch it for more than a fraction of a second. That thing flies.
