The custom Rolls-Royce Maharaja Phantom Drophead Coupé was designed especially for the Dubai market. This exclusive vehicle revealed at the AGMC Rolls-Royce showroom is a one-of-a-kind model and draws its inspiration from the bygone era of the Raja and in particular the glorious golden age of India.

Looking into the past, the designers examined how over a hundred years ago Indian royalty developed a unique relationship with Rolls-Royce, one which saw an unprecedented number of bespoke vehicles created. Each of which was designed to test what was possible in a Rolls-Royce and led to a partnership which saw over 800 hand-crafted vehicles from the heart of Rolls-Royce in Goodwood, England delivered to India.

This was a development which earned the company the 'Best Car in the World' award and its designers created an unheard of number of modifications to the style, comfort and performance of its vehicles.

In recreating this Golden moment, Rolls-Royce has unveiled its latest collection of vehicles. A series of cars inspired by the Maharajas and the Phantom Drophead Coupé is but the first.

Osman Abdelmoneim, the General Manager at AGMC said that by revealing this one-of-a-kind vehicle in Dubai, Rolls-Royce is announcing how it feels about the market and how important it is to them. It also serves to stress its commitment.

The possibilities within the bespoke marketplace have prompted great interest in the area and the Rolls-Royce's programme promises the heights of luxury and customisation to those within the community.

Abdelmoneim continued that all of its cars at Rolls-Royce represent the pinnacle of what's possible. The achievements can be seen in the Maharaja Phantom Drophead Coupé and belong to its customers as much as the company.

As well as the customisation of each vehicle, there are a number of additional elements which have been added including a change in colour. The Phantom is now available in a stunning Carrara White, a green coachline and emblazoned with a Peacock, which is India's national bird, on the bonnet. The green extends to the hood and the Peacock emblem can also be seen on the inlaid woodwork.

The interior changes are also striking with the Crème Light leather blending perfectly with the Emerald green highlights throughout. The marquetry continues on the panel tops and the arm rests with some extensive creativity as the headrests also feature the Peacock symbols and come in the same Emerald green and an elegant Cobalto blue. Additional work on the side and central arm rests include peacock feathers in an exquisite Seashell stitching and the Colbalto blue as seen on the headrest is prevalent at key points to highlight the green lining.

Marketed to Dubai's elite, the Phantom is one of Rolls-Royce's crowning achievements. With over two years of design and effort, it comprises the wishes and dreams of a prior age and brings them today's technology. It is innovative, exudes elegance and a fitting first in the new Bespoke Programme.

If you are looking for a new home but you are also a car fan we might have the perfect deal for you. Daman Maison building on Dubai’s Mall Street is the answer. Damac real estate and building company will offer a 2014 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster for free if you buy a penthouse. Of course, nothing is for free these days, but we have to admit that the Aventador Roadster makes the offer look really good.

We have to mention that the Aventador Roadster is part of the company’s Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) promotion. For those who don’t know, the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster is priced at 300,000 euros, excluding taxes. It is powered by a 6.5-liter V12 engine rated at 700 hp, bolted to a ISR 7-speed gearbox.

As a result, it sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3 seconds and has a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).

According to Niall McLoughlin, Senior Vice President, Damac Properties. These promotions are always highly anticipated and the best results are seen during this time of the year. Back in 2013, penthouse buyers were offered an Audi R8, while buyers of three-bed units received an Audi A8.

Two bedroom buyers got an Audi A6, while one bed got an A4. In 2012, penthouse buyers in premium developments such as the Damac Heights, Ocean Heights or Burjside Boulevard received a free Lamborghini.

During the Dubai Shopping Festival, Damac gave away luxury cars but also yachts, a private jet or a private island in the Caribbean.

The patrol fleet of the Dubai Police Force has a new addition – a Brabus-tuned Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG. This amazing car joins the already intimidating list of luxury cars that Dubai’s police own, including a Bugattti Veyron, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Ferrari FF, a Bentley Continental GT, an Aston Martin One-77, and a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

The new G-Class is a Brabus B63S-Widestar that used special paint and that features an LED light bar. Its other elements are simply standard-grade Brabus and AMG hardware, such as a set of massive 23-inch forged wheels, the flared fenders, and gaping front fascia. It also has the following standard features from Brabus: quilted red leather seating, illuminated door sills, and carbon fiber trim.

It’s definitely much better than what’s seen in a typical police car, which mainly uses plastic and vinyl. Brabus tuned the already impressive G63 AMG to be more potent. The stock 2013 G63 AMG is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8 that offers 536 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque. After Brabus tweaks the engine, this same engine becomes capable of producing 700 hp and 708 lb-ft of torque.

It doesn’t offer much in terms of aerodynamics and it weighs significantly more than 5600 pounds but with this output, the Brabus B63S-Widestar is able to accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds and to reach a maximum speed of 149 mph.

It would be exciting to see the Brabus G63 AMG go after criminals on the highway but it’s unlikely to be placed in active service. It’s believed that similar to what has become of Dubai’s other exotic police cars, the B63S-700 Widestar will probably be more of a department ambassador and will be seen mostly during special events.

Jaguar Land Rover has launched an 11,120-sq. ft. new engineering test center in Dubai, UAE, replacing a smaller facility in the city. The center will be responsible for conducting extreme hot weather vehicle research, development, and testing for the carmaker. Dubai is considered as an ideal venue for hot climate testing, thanks to temperatures that reach 120 degrees Fahrenheit during summer.

Located in the Al Barsha area of Dubai, the new test center will offer a wide range of capabilities, including high temperature durability, calibration, and testing. The engineering team at the new center will also test powertrains, chassis and heat and ventilation systems, as well as the off-road and sand driving capability of the Land Rover Terrain Response system.

Martyn Hollingsworth, Jaguar Land Rover Director of Engineering Technical Services, remarked that the carmaker has ambitious plans for growth, and since 2008 the company has been investing to enhance its engineering capability to help it deliver an “unprecedented number” of new and refreshed Jaguar and Land Rover models.

He noted that the carmaker’s new facility in Dubai is four times larger of the previous test center, and will allowed them to enhance testing of future products and technologies. Hollingsworth said that the carmaker’s engineering team is focused on the quality and durability of their products – of which rigorous environmental testing plays a vital role.

The Dubai Police force has included a Chevrolet Camaro SS to its existing fleet of vehicles. The keys to the Camaro SS were handed to Dubai Deputy Police Chief Major General Khamis Mattar Al Mazeina in a ceremony at police headquarters by Buti Saeed Al Ghandi, managing director of Al Ghandi Auto and John Stadwick, president and managing director of GM Middle East.

In exchange, the Dubai Police handed Stadwick a special engraved plaque.

Buti Saeed Al Ghandi expressed delight in being the first to respond to the Dubai Police’s request for assistance in “adding high performance patrol cars to their fleet.” He remarked that they felt that the Camaro would be the “right vehicle for their needs.” Al Ghandi Auto is GM’s dedicated Chevrolet dealer partner in Dubai.

He also expressed confidence that the Camaro’s ability to respond rapidly – thanks to its high performance V8 engine, suitability for Dubai’s roads, and ease of servicing -- will make it the ideal patrol car “for years to come.” The Camaro SS is powered by 6.2L V8 engine that provides up to 426 horsepower of output and up to 567 Nm of torque, allowing it to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 250 km/h.
