Technically. But in the Middle East nothings illegal, until you get caught that is.

Default Bentley and LP

While were on the topic of the LP 640 and the Bentley, heres a few pictures of them togeather. The Bentley WAS my Dads, he let me take it because I convinced him
that I don't feel "safe" in any other car, especially in Dubai. Some people don't like the color combination, but this was the only car that was availible from Mansory
without having to wait 6 Months and still not be guaranteed a car from them, plus with only 24 made world-wide we went for it. We ended up selling it 2 months
later though, too worried that even the smallest crash/ding would be too much of a hassel to fix. And my Dad can't have a car that is not in perfect condition it
disturbs him. So instead we got the Rolls Royce Phantom. Enjoy the pictures!

The car was in Saudi because it was traded to my dads dealership and then sent to another dealership in Dubai (my dad is in the car trading business among many other occupations). It took around two months or so for the car to be sold. I'm not 100% sure of the buying/selling details because i never interfere with my dads business. And because i didn't know it was in Saudi till the day i was told, which was the day when i was going to Dubai, I don't have any pictures of it in Saudi. I'm told that while in Saudi it was temporarily badged with the o seven o plates. I know that once in Dubai the o seven o plates were switched to the LP 640 and the Bentley was handed over to the dealership, but not before i had a 'small' spin in it because of me convincing my dad i don't feel safe renting a car. I don't think my dad really bought the car to own(very low kilos on the odo), it was a business deal, thats why he was soo worried about anything happening to it.

Great updating, good to know you're a BHPian and no longer a newbie.

I was curious to know whether you know of the Ajman crew and their RRR cars? The Mansory GT has their 'trademark' colour combination.

Thats good to hear. I see that these are more your cars than the family's cars, so the choice of cars to "start off" with makes sense.

Absolutely! Im sure a lot of people would be very interested in that.

Oops. Yes, that is a "true exotic" by most peoples definitions (personally, i find it a little plain-jane - hence i guess i overlooked it). Needless to say, it is compared to the Enzo/CGT by many. Not suprising that it is your favourite.

Really looking forward to that one!! Just love the way that thing sounds. I'm guessing it will be quite a handful to drive as well.....

That carpark at marina walk usually has a few exotics parked. I've seen a white lambo with a 3 digit number plate but def not yours. Next time, I'll keep a look out for that. Hoping to bump into you sometime when you come to dubai.

Sigh. Mall of Emirates Kempinski driveway. I saw the wildest cars ever out there, Friday night is a car lover's paradise!! The evening I went, there was a Koenigsegg, a couple of Astons and an F430 as well. Was hoping to find a Zonda but that didn't really happen. Anyway great pics.
