Default Modern Classics Mini Show - Dubai

Hello All,

Just been to Dubai Mall, to show the mall and the Burj Khalifa(nee Dubai)etc to visiting friends. In the Mall chanced up on an exhibition of Modern Classic Cars - displyed by Al Ain Classic Car Co. - a dealer in high end special cars.

I am up loading a few pictures (poor picture quality is regretted as I did not have a camera with me and had to use the mobile phone of my spouse)

Another thing I am not sure if the Cars info sheets provided were correct. I haven't had a chance to check on the info but posting it as they were displyed (An advance bail application to the Gurus!)

Hope you enjoy the pictures of these beutiful machines

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

Ram

1 & 2 Ultimate Aero by Shelby Super Cars - 1183 BHP @ 6,950 RPM

The Rolls Royce looks like the 'Ghost' to me. Can a RR aficionado confirm please?

Hey Ram,

Just a few things I'd like to clear up here, pictures

1 and 2 looks like a standard LP640 with just a carbon fiber spoiler. Plus its got the ugliest colour I've ever seen.
3 & 4 is the Mansory SLR
5 and 6 is the SL Roadster by FAB Design
7 is again the Mansory SLR
8 and 9 is your standard SLR 722

Lovely pics btw.

If you look at my original mail, you can see that I had stated that the info could be wrong as I was copying what was put up next to the cars.

The exhibition was at a shopping mall and hence these guys would have used the Common Brand names to identify the cars (having money and knowledge about automobile always don't go hand in hand in these parts of the world you see) The name Mansory would not have ment anything to many. So they did the next best use Mercedes.

I have not had time to really look up each, as I am busy with some guests here.

Also there was a mistake in my listing as well.

Thanks for the Authentic Info

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

FD,

Obviously these cars are intended for people who can buy them without asking the price and hence, the organisors had not put up the prices.

For who are compelled to know the price before buying the way out is as below (hope and pray he would do well enough to own one of these or what is equivelant, in his time)!

That CLK Kompressor is the Prize in the Lucky Draw happening in the Dubai Mall. For every AED 500 spent in the non food outlets in there gets you a raffle coupon.

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

Ram: Thanks for posting the pics
The white SLR looks weird and I am amazed by the way they have displayed the cars
Even in India they won't display the cars like this in Mall even if the price is less than 10 lakhs.
