Traditionally held in November of every year, the Dubai International Motor Show is one of the most significant manifestations in the Middle East. Due to the importance of the local market, all car companies try to impress the showgoers with displays that are not available anywhere else.

Some car companies even choose this show for world premieres of their luxury cars. The Dubai International Motor Show is often accompanied by other events like tuning shows, parts shops, classic car shows, and so on.

Luxury Car Rentals

Dubai is a city with probably the highest rate of luxury, sports, and prestigious models commonly seen on the streets. If you want to blend in, make a statement, or just enjoy its surroundings in the best possible way, you’ll need a luxury convertible, sports car, or premium SUV. We’ve got you covered, and in our Dubai office, you can find prestigious Ferrari, Mercedes, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce, or Bentley models all ready and waiting to deliver you the automotive experience of a lifetime. Renting and enjoying such a vehicle is even more accessible in Dubai than it is in the rest of the world.

Desert Driving

Driving in the desert is a big part of Dubai’s automotive experience and a unique chance to tackle the rocky hills, jump over the dunes, or learn special off-road driving techniques. Since the desert consists of most of the Emirate of Dubai’s landscape, the locals perfected driving on the sand, and there is an enormous off-road community there. It means you can find numerous desert tour guides and rent a specially prepared off-road vehicle. He highly suggests doing so, and the experience will be fantastic. Especially if you opt for camping and spending the night underneath the millions of desert stars. Also, we must warn you not to go into the desert without appropriate vehicle supplies and without off-road driving experience. As calm as it seems from the road, the desert is a very dangerous place for inexperienced drivers without proper gear.

Road Trips

What is a better way to get the vibe of a city than driving around? In Dubai, road trips are on the next level since you have many things to see, from coastal roads, skyscrapers, and impressive residential areas to massive highway networks, desert roads, and an oasis in the middle of nowhere. However, since Abu Dhabi is 130 km (80 miles) away to the south and the mountain roads of Jebel Jais are just 160 km (100 miles) to the north, there is no reason why you shouldn’t just drive outside the city. Road-tripping is an immensely interesting way to spend your Dubai holiday, and we guarantee that you will see fantastic scenery and perfectly smooth roads and have the drive of your life behind the wheel of a luxury rental car. You can drive on the highways that run along the shore, but you can always take the scenic route or local roads through the countryside. Either way, you are in for a drive of a lifetime.

Exotic Car Dealerships, Collections and Museums

Even though the most prominent UAE car museums are not located in Dubai, this city still has an impressive classic car collection open to visitors. Called Al Serkal Classic Car Collection, it is located on Al Maktoum Road, Dubai. It features an extensive lineup of perfectly restored classic cars from the early days of motoring history. This collection shows classic vehicles used in Dubai in the past and gives perfect insight into what the roads were like before Dubai became a modern metropolis. Also, all over the city, you can find numerous car dealerships and collections selling exclusive cars, custom cars, classic cars, and anything on four wheels. We particularly recommend the Al Ain Class Motors showroom on Sheikh Zayed Road. Due to the proximity of the desert, dedicated off-road shops are standard, and you can find extensive offerings of specialized gear, components, and off-road parts.

Dubai’s thriving car community doesn’t just revolve around car shows, expensive dealerships, or private collections; it also has its own spots in the city and places where all car enthusiasts meet. One such place is the well-known Flat12 Caffe. Located in the Dubai Maritime City area, Flat12 is a unique place in the world. It is a cafe, car display, and location for many local club meets and traditional Cars & Cookies events.

Dubai Police Exotic Car Fleet

Dubai is a city of extravagance, and so is its police car fleet. A few years ago, the Dubai Police made the headlines when they acquired a fleet of supercars and luxury vehicles, including Bugatti Veyron, Mercedes SLS, Audi R8, Nissan GT-R, Lamborghini Urus, and Aston Martin One 77, all painted in characteristic green and white color scheme with lights on the roof. Since then, the Dubai Police has bought new supercars every year, expanding its fleet into the most expensive police carpool in the world. Of course, such specialty cars are not used in everyday patrol duties and apprehending bad guys but for parades, promotional purposes, and car events. So, if you are in Dubai while some automotive event is held, you will get to see police Lamborghini Aventador with flashing lights and sirens, which is the only one in the world. Seeing a supercar police fleet parading the streets is an extraordinary site. It is currently unclear when the next Dubai International Motor Show will be held.
