I'm not a fan of Dubai. It's probably the 'fakest' place i've ever been to.

And people wonder why they needed Abu Dhabi to bail them out and pay their debts in 2008/9 (which is why the Burj was renamed).

Not much oil in Dubai - it's about 2% of GDP.

They got the Camaro for free after arresting the murderer, might as well use it.

Dubai So much money that despite beating and torturing 4 UK citizens on trumped up drugs charges our PM is too scared of "offending" them he won't even raise the issue with them.

But it's OK to drug horses apparently:

Dubai is a country with one of the worst human rights records against its own people and any unlucky foreigners caught up in its mess. Luckily for them money buys more than just fancy police cars.

Dubai is about as close to dystopian 80's cyberpunk as we've gotten so far.

Ermm, the ZL1 is nice, in terms of bang for buck, I've not driven one but have checked it out. Still ugly, but definitely the best of the breed, by a good bit. Not that the FF is a looker...

I agree - Everything's "big" and "flash", but they haven't got much taste, really.

They'd probably prefer freedom. Although driving around in those cars all day does sound pretty good.
