Flash New Cars Roll into Emirates as Old Cars Scrapped

Mention was made earlier of the UAE decision to put 20 year old cars into the auto cemetery and in a couple of years the car life expectancy rate will be lowered to 15 years.

It is difficult to understand the logic in all the reasons presented but many commentators are saying that New Car dealers are the ones that are rejoicing most at this decision.

British journos covering the Abu Dhabi purchase of the Manchester City Football have expressed amazement at the lavish cars outside the Emirates Palace (see this expensive car).

Check out this post to discover what is the most popular car in the United Arab Emirates.

Pictured in this posting is an example of the luxury cars that keep rolling into this country. Here are the descriptive notes on a luxury car web site:

“Wealthy customers in the United Arab Emirates seem to have a penchant for special editions of the most expensive luxury saloons. As if it wasn't enough to get the Maybach Landaulet revealed right there on their home turn, one Arabian customer recently ordered a custom gilded Rolls-Royce Drophead. Now Rolls-Royce has followed up with a special edition of its Phantom limousine targeted specifically for the UAE.”
