Spyker buys Saab, launch new Saab models, sells Spyker

Having restarted the Spyker nameplate, its owners went ahead and created a few exotic cars that never sold well, started an F1 team that flopped, and then bought an ailing Swedish carmaker that General Motors desperately wanted to get rid of. They’ve launched new Saab models, including the 9-4X and the 9-5 designed under GM, as well as revealing a 9-3 facelift and a 9-5 wagon just today, both while announcing that they’ve sold their loss-making Spyker sports-car business to someone else!

Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD by Al Ghandi in Dubai wins MBC Driven contest


If you have a basic TV package like we do, the only channels you’ll watch are the MBC ones, especially the excellent MBC Action channel. While all their shows are U.S. ones, they tried their hand at making an Arabic car show called Driven, which seemed to be a mixture of the worst parts of Top Gear, Pimp My Ride, MTV and Sesame Street. That awesome show (so awesome that Car Middle East gave the host an award out of sheer infatuation) just had its season finale, and the only good thing to come out of it was the winner for the Battle Of The Garages competition,
