Since Saivalli has stopped posting,Ill post a few which I took during my recent trip.

First a super hot Hamann Gallardo I saw while I was going to Jebel Hafeet mountain near Al Ain.The exhaust note was just ear shattering.

If someone isnt replying doesnt mean no one is seeing the thread. Some might just like to admire the cars instead of going Oooh and aahhh !!!

That should not stop you from posting pictures for all to see.

Indeed.
Saivalli, I feel you should be happy that the quality of your thread is intact since no one is spamming.

Dude did you check out the Dubai Autodrome?I believe the Russian mafia guy who owns a mc12 has parked the car there.He pays 50000 dollars a year it seems as parking fee.Thats what a guy at Ferrari Dubai on Sheikh Zayed road told me.

There are two mc12s (normal) which are owned by two separate mafia guys.
One of them reportedly owns the Pegaso Veyron.Any way here is a pic of the mc12 corsa at princess cars showroom.

Guys who go to Abu Dhabi should check this showroom out.

When I went there it was closed so sadly I couldnt take pictures from the inside.I was staying in Dubai so Abu Dhabi was quite far.Thats why couldnt go back.But ill be going this year end again so no problem.
There were a few crashed ferrari and a completely totalled 599 at the ferrari showroom.The guy there told me they have sold 300 f430s and 8 enzos till now in U.A.E.
Here is a photo of the same colour lp640 and gallardo at MOE.The sound of the lp was sweet but the gallardo had aftermarket exhaust pipes I guess because its sound was heavenly.

Guys, a request, i can try to understand the need for you to watermark your images. But try to be a little discreet and mark them on a side corner and not on the car itself.
