It’s not all concept and hyper cars at Dubai Motor Show…there’s plenty of just normal old supercars and sports cars too. Nissan’s GT-R seemed to be popular with some unusual characters, such as the Dubai Police…
…and Usain Bolt. No wonder this edition is wrapped in gold!
Following on from concept pictures of a four-door GT-86 from Toyota, it’s pretty sweet to see the convertible version in the metal. How would that look with full Rocket Bunny makeover?
Whether AMG, Brabus or any other tuner of Mercedes-Benz models, there’s something seriously hard about a modified Merc. For some reason, they’re not always the number one choice for driving purists, but just looking at these and you can hear one of those incredible sounding V8s burbling away…even when they’re turned off. Sleek style and beautiful engines, that’s the name of the game.
This Merc might find fans with the driving snobs though…
Meanwhile, their German rivals continue to do what they do best. New Porsche Turbo and 911 GT3…you probably don’t even need to know any more than that.
Or an ‘M’ prefix in front of a BMW model, in this case the 6.
The new 4-series up close. M4 could be a winner.
Although there’s still life in the 3-series yet!
An ‘RS’ badge in front of an Audi model is never a bad thing either. The new RS6, in this matte grey, was probably one of the toughest looking cars in the whole show.
There were some Ferraris too…in red.
Old habits die hard, so we couldn’t help putting some Ford pics in. The new EcoSport is quite a funky little car, and if they bring out an AWD version it would be even cooler.
Almost as cool as seeing a Focus ST in amongst all the high priced performance cars…a hatchback that can deliver just as many, if not more, thrills than some of the super-performance machinery on show – especially if you’re intending to use it everyday.
Scattered around the show were a few racers, which is always a pleasant sight. From 1960s F1 to LeMans winners the scope covered was pretty broad. But for us, the Hyundai i20 WRC car would be the weapon of choice. How tough does that look!
