1000 Miglia Experience UAE in a 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL

We got a first hand experience on the 1000 Miglia Experience UAE Jubilee Edition which was first announced at the UAE Jubilee Launch back in December, 2021 by Octanium Group. We caught up with the rally on their second-leg of the journey from the InterContinental Fujairah Resort towards Jabel Jais, Ras Al Khaimah and ending the race at 25Hour Hotel, Dubai.

The 1000 Miglia UAE Prologue was a 2 day, 700KM rally race across the emirates. We were paired as a navigator to a seasoned 1000 Miglia driver, Mr. Wilfried Porth who used to be a Member of the Board of Management at Daimler AG and our classic ride for the journey was a 1969 Mercedes-Benz 280SL.

First drive: 2022 Volkswagen Teramont Highline in the UAE

Given all the historically significant nameplates in VW’s stable, the Teramont is a relatively new addition to the Volkswagen family, and their largest SUV model. Known as Atlas in the United States where it is built and manufactured, this vehicle originally debuted in 2018.

First drive: 2022 Toyota Land Cruiser in the UAE

2022 Infiniti QX60 revealed with all-new design

The Infiniti QX60 has been the brand’s cash cow for the past few crossover-crazy years. Despite its popularity, the three-row crossover was growing too old for its job, as the current-gen model launched in 2012. So the 2022 Infiniti QX60 skipped a year and launches as a completely revamped model.
