It was the choice of any African dictator worth his salt - and with good reason too.

Another Pic of Sheikh Mohammad Al Maktoum's Ride. Loos like the car is bullet proof, you can tell that from the windows. I think this is a new G55 owned by the Sheikh because the previous one had different grille.

It doesn't look like bullet proofed, for bullet proofed G, there will be a thick black lining throught out all the glasses.
