    Top Gear photoshoot in Abu Dhabi

    Photo shoot goes into top gear
    Neil Vorano

    ABU DHABI Psst, buddy, can you spare me a sports car? Yes, evidently, three of them. This weekend Top Gear, the UK-based car magazine, which is in the country for a photo shoot, sent out an urgent request for an unusual car, the million-dollar Bugatti Veyron.

    It was hoping for one. Instead, it was offered three of the vehicles, which cost more than Dh4.4 million (US$1.2m) each. No other place in the world could we have found three Bugattis in a span of 48 hours, said a relieved Charlie Turner, the creative director for the magazine.

    The cars were tracked down by the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority and belong to local owners who wish to remain anonymous. Built by Volkswagen, the 1,000-horsepower vehicle can reach 407kph. One car in the shoot, a gleaming aluminium-bodied model, is one of only five in the world.

    The Corniche area and Jabel Hafeet were briefly closed off for the shoot, which featured the Stig, Top Gears mysterious, overall-clad driver.

    Top Gear, paired with a BBC television show of the same name, sells more than a million copies a month.

    Part of the shoot on top and on this road of Jabel Hafeet mountain as well apparently:

    Never generalize, not all Arabs are rich, its just the ones you see/hear about are which is about 0.5% of the Arab population. The majority are very poor (which is why you never see/hear about them), and if we're going to talk about UAE, well they don't even have a population of 1 million.
