We just received a press release stating that the 2011 Mini Countryman had its GCC launch in Dubai with a “two-day action packed adventure” for the media around the UAE. We also heard from some Sharjah newspaper journalist that even he was invited.

The American-built 2011 Honda Odyssey minivan was launched at an event in Dubai. The upmarket minivan is seemingly aimed at big Arab families, and is expected to sell fine in countries such as Saudi Arabia, though not necessarily as abundantly in the UAE.
At the 2010 Qatar Motor Show, Porsche unveiled the Panamera 4S Exclusive Middle East Edition. The strictly-limited 66 vehicles will only be available for sale in the Middle East. The “special” bits are limited to colour and trim only.
