Our 2008 Mitsubishi Galant GTS is now in full service, being used as a daily commuter for the Dubai-Abu Dhabi-Dubai slog every evening by my brother. So we racked up 3,000 km in less than a week.
This “Ironhide” GMC Topkick truck model from the Transformers movies has been sitting on my display shelf for a while now. The truck can actually transform into a robot. Now you can win it.
Update: The winner is Anete T. Thomas.
One of our readers in Dubai, Afaq Soomro, caught what he says could be the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class or more likely a B-Class. And we’d say he guessed right, considering camouflaged Mercedes-Benz cars in the UAE are a common sight and these test cars seem to be escorted by other Mercedes-Benz cars.
The 2010 BMW 535i Gran Turismo left us many months ago, after less than three weeks with us. We figured we should do a wrap-up article before closing the book on this car, especially since BMW themselves are considering ending production of this car for obvious reasons.
Geely is on a roll in the GCC region, it seems. Two test cars in light camo which were spotted by two commuters in Dubai on two different streets that lay fairly close by, turned out to be two different models from the same manufacturer, Geely. This one is the Emgrand EC825.
German carmaker BMW has just expanded their 6-series line-up for 2012 with the introduction of four new variants – the 640d Coupe, 640d Covertible, 650i xDrive Coupe and 650i xDrive Convertible.
If anyone remembers seeing the Azera, the full-sized sedan from Hyundai that was based and heavily resembled a modified previous-generation Sonata, they would gladly confirm that it wasn’t the best premium car around. Being one of their flagship models, Hyundai had put a lot of faith in it, but the Genesis came along, and so did the next generation Sonata, wiping out whatever buzz it had.
No one gives a damn about the next Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG or the latest Bugatti Veyron, except for kids who love posters and rich people who don’t drive much. This is the first shoddy photo of the 2012 Toyota Camry, quite possibly the most anticipated car in the world, made a worldwide best-seller by regular folks.
So I was driving along Garhoud Bridge in Dubai a few days ago, and a seemingly mid-size sedan bearing light camouflage caught my attention. Like any other car enthusiast I was eager to find out what it was and soon got involved in a brief chase with the unknown driver of the unknown car. Though the chase did not help me get a clue of what brand the car possibly belonged to, I succeeded in taking a few pictures of the car. And as it turned out, what I chased was a Geely Emgrand EC718.
