Royal Drive Supercar Rally in the UAE
As Luxist readers well know the UAE and in particular Dubai and Abu Dhabi are home to some of the most spectacularly ostentatious collections of supercars, often customized within an inch of their lives. Now a new event has been inaugurated in order for the local sheikhs and such to show them off to best advantage. The Royal Drive is a three-day exotic auto orgy featuring an armada of 60 Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Aston Martins, Bentleys, Mercedes-McLaren SLRs, Gemballa Mirage GTs and more, kicking off on March 18. The event will begin at the 5-star Yas Hotel on Yas Island, home to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and upcoming Ferrari World theme park. From there the cavalcade will continue to circuit the Abu Dhabi Corniche beach boulevard winding up at the 5-star Intercontinental Hotel at Dubai Creek. That night participants will enjoy VIP treatment at the Elements Music Concert in Dubai Festival City before proceeding on to the Dubai Marina and a wrap party at the Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residences. And yes, you need a gold-plated invitation.
