Default Another Rare (?) Sighting

We also get to see these kind (high end cars hitching rides). Often there is nothing wrong with the cars, but its being transported for the owners convenience - say the owner has left it at the airport while flying out or the owner took taxi home from his previous evening's watering hole etc. So the car gets a ride home next day so that the owner can go out again in style.

Best Regards & Thanks

Since I'm new to Dubai , it is like wow!! for every supercar i see

yesterday i saw a mercury red Mclaren MP4-12c taking off from signal,it disappeared in a sec and sound was awesome

Almost all Merc S class' are AMG spec and BMW 7ers have 21' inch wheels

BTW I have been spotting this test car in disguise frequently over past 1 week , thought it was BMW GranCoupe as headlights looked similar but its already launched ,rite?

Yes, it looks like Nissan Maxima. My father has one in Dubai, 2011 model. It's a 3.5L and he is really scared of the power it possess. . It impressed even my brother who has a Dodge Charger 5.7L HEMI. But then again these cars are one among many in Dubai which is a car lovers paradise.

If you have the money, then you can have it. The philosophy of any self-respecting millionaire in the Middle East, especially Dubai.

Mods: I'm not sure if it's inappropriate to post in Arabic, if it is, please delete.

When i googled found Nissan Maxima had a facelift recently , why would they rollout a new one , usually the time frame is 3 years for a new model to be launched,rite?

I really don't know much about the Dubai car scene.. Just an admirer of the cars on road. That said, I have never seen/heard about vehicle testing in Dubai. But I think you are right, I dont think its time yet for a update/facelift.
