The best supercars at Dubai Motor Show
The Dubai Motor Show is the region's biggest car extravaganza, which is why we sent the region's biggest car fanatic – and social media superstar – to pick her top five supercars.
The Devel Sixteen
While electric cars are part of our future, another part will be so far in the opposite direction, we won’t know where to look. This car will have a mind-numbing 5,007bhp, a v16 engine and any prospective owner will need to sign a waiver when buying one. If you don’t think you could stable 5,000 horses then, don’t worry, there’s a more ‘timid’ 2,000 version. First cars to be delivered next year.
Aston Martin Valkyrie
As soon as you see the Valkyrie, all you want to do is get in, but that’s where the challenge starts. As only the top half of the door opening, we can foresee some rather awkward moments for people trying to perfect their entrance, but the naturally aspirated v12 with 1,000bhp should more than make up for it. Surprisingly, the Valkyrie also has a tiny electric engine used for reversing.
Mercedes AMG Project One
This car has a shark fin. Oh, and also an F1 engine that propels you on to your next red light. It’s also worth noting that it also has four electric motors, and rumour has it that Mercedes may even be adding a fifth one, and why not? It’s amazing to think they can pack all of this in to such a streamlined sleek looking car, priced at approximately AED 9.5 million.
Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive series
If Dubai were a state in Germany, it would no doubt be outputting the perfect combination of performance and bling. Sure, we’ve all seen carbon fibre, but the interior of this Porsche has carbon fibre with copper thread interwoven, which looks like touches of gold and results in the most beautiful detailing we’ve seen in a long time.
Dubai Motor Show punters were able to feed their eyes on the brand new Corvette before anyone else in the world, and it was worth the dramatic reveal. The V8 engine has over 750bhp which basically means it’s the fastest and most powerful Corvette ever. The extra carbon fibre on the body doesn’t go astray either.
