Ferrari 140 car convoy along Syeikh Zayed Highway, Dubai

I was driving from Dubai to Abu Dhabi late one afternoon, and wonder why there was a traffic jam on the normally "clear" Syeikh Zayed Highway .. Ah ha! A Ferrari convoy as long as the eye could see!!

DUBAI - Shaikh Majid bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Culture and Arts Authority, officiated a 2-day VIP event at Meydan Grandstand and Racecourse and The Meydan hotel.
Organised by Al Tayer Motors, a convoy of 140 Ferrari cars lined up in front of the Meydan Grandstand, the world’s longest landscraper, which formed a stunning backdrop for various models of the luxury Italian marque. The convoy left enroute to Abu Dhabi, in officiation of the Grand Opening of Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.
The event was jointly coordinated between the UAE Ferrari Owners Club, Al Tayer Motors and Meydan, which included a luncheon for guests on The Meydan’s trackside terrace, and guests were treated to a performance by local UAE band, Al Ayala.

Amongst the beauties I spotted ... the gorgeous F430, magnificent 458 Italia and even the California. There were as many red ones, as there were many white / silver / gunmetal grey / yellow ones! Only in the UAE :-)
