Dubai International Motor Show 2013

In 2003 I was still a student
I ditched classes
Travelled by car cuz I can't buy tickets
I stayed in a cheap hotel
Just to attend Dubai Motor Show
I skipped 2005 motorshow in november to go to Detroit in January 2006
Then went to 2007, 2009, 2011
And now after 10 years.. I came back to attend 2013 Dubai International Motor Show.


When you first enter, you're greeted by a Porsche GT1, Ferrari Enzo and a CLK GTR.
I guess they all belong to rally legend Mohammed Bin Selayem.

What a Collection!!





I will only post pictures of the highlights of the show.
One of them was the Mercedes G 6X6 we saw early this year as a concept.
The one you see here is modified by Brabus, V12 twin turbo that makes 700Bhp after the Brabus touches.


 



Love the details..


Police cars of Dubai were also stars of the show..

I asked Emarati friends : Why would Police waste money on super cars to catch people when you have all of these systems and cameras around Dubai?

 They say, these cars are gifts from people to the Police and not purchased by Duabi Police department.



 

Alfa 4C, The youngest Italian Model.
The car that lapped the Nurburgring in under 8 mins.
Although I think it is over priced at 32+ KD



As for BMW, After the M4!!
235i
comes the X4!! why not I mean ?

Another cool car and a true star.. The Audi S3
When you compare it to the A45 and CLA45 AMG.. at 280Bhp it feels underpowered.
But it looks very nice from the inside and very great as a whole!



 




SLS AMG BlackSeries
 

Jaguar Project 7
A Car based on the Jaguar F-Type but looks meaner and cooler at the same time.


No roof at all
One Seat


That Head scoop..
Carbon rear wing..





That Cool Jaguar with sunshades..


Carbon rims..






Lamborghini Aventador LP700 lonely at the stand waiting for the younger brother Cabrera soon..






McLaren P1 looks smaller than you think, Very compact and futuristic.







Aston 100
A Concept to celebrate 100th year of one of the finest cars on earth..



Hennessey Venom!
Meh!


The All new 2015 Cadillac Escalade.. Beautiful!!!


2015 GMC Yukon!


The New 991 Porsche GT3.. A car to admire and respect..
475 Bhp Normal aspirated flat 6
Rear steering
New PDK

The only car I sat in during the show..
And hope it makes bad sales so they make a manual again



The new 991 Turbo is like Natalie Portman.. ages fine
And this time looks like Natalie Portman with a Phd.



The Ferrari 458 Speciale..
Another star..





 



The Young champion..





All in All is my favourite phrase..

All in All.. The show was good
I Give it 7/10
Why the 918 was not there?
Where's the LaFerrari
Where's the other extreme car makers ?
I want Pagani, Ruf, Gembala and more..

But Time well spent in Dubai.. 


Enjoy!
