Get into gear on your next trip to Dubai
Dubai has gained a reputation as a world leader in all things motoring. From the brand new Lamborghini showroom and pristine Bentley suite to the many incredible motorsport events taking place in the emirate, Dubai has plenty to talk about when it comes to cars.
Tour the finest Italian supercars at Dubai’s Lamborghini Showroom. A shining monument to one of the region’s favourite supercars, it boasts a prime location on Sheikh Zayed Road and is the largest Lamborghini showroom in the world, spanning an expansive 2,800sqm. Step inside and explore all three levels, including two private display areas for VIP guests – bookings are recommended.
The British automotive brand boasts prestige vehicles for Formula One drivers and road-cars for enthusiasts – along with lifestyle events, a driving programme, VIP hospitality and exclusive motorsports events. The showroom in Dubai is the most advanced McLaren in the world, showcasing the rigorous work from designers, engineers and drivers that go into each vehicle. Complete with a coffee lounge, this 647sqm showroom overlooking the Burj Khalifa is definitely the place for car enthusiasts to explore.
Famous for the Chiron – dubbed the world’s most powerful, fastest, most exclusive and most luxurious sports car – the Bugatti showroom speaks for itself with their limited yet exclusive range of supercars on display. The Dubai showroom is the biggest in the world, with the largest Veyron fleet and technical displays of the makings behind Bugatti vehicles. The unmistakable horseshoe marks the entranceway – standing at four metres high, and the interiors are equally luxe, boasting furniture from the Bugatti Home Collection.
Stay at the Bentley Suite
It’s not just car showrooms and high-octane stunts that reflect the emirate’s thirst for motoring. Nowadays there are even hotel rooms dedicated to cars. Without a doubt, the most impressive in the city is Habtoor Palace Dubai’s Bentley Suite. Rich wood finishes, marble floors and leather accents on handcrafted furnishings are all par for the course in the Bentley Suite, which boasts floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the hotel’s manicured gardens. Guests also enjoy a full butler service and the use of a Bentley Mulsanne for the duration of their stay.
Go racing at Dubai Autodrome
One of the most accessible and thrilling ways to get behind the wheel is with a Dubai Autodrome Driving Experience. From basic driving classes tailored for first-time drivers, to hot laps in a 625bhp McLaren Sprint, Dubai Autodrome offers a driving experience for every skill level. If you’d prefer to take to the open roads, Dubai also has plenty of options when it comes to supercar hire companies, boasting extensive fleets at reasonable daily rates.
Dine at Intersect by Lexus
Intersect by Lexus is Dubai’s unique restaurant combining the luxury automotive brand with fine dining. Didn’t know these two would go well together? We don’t blame you. But once you set foot in this unique concept restaurant, you’ll immediately sense the Lexus brand blending in with the dining experience. Much like the vehicles themselves, the restaurant is both stylish and relaxed, with a cool menu that always satisfies.
Discover the future at Tesla
Get behind the wheel of Tesla's futuristic range of cars in Dubai. The brand's 17,000 square feet store and service centre along Sheikh Zayed Road reflects a slick, minimalist design. Step inside and you'll be impressed by the all-electric models on display that showcase sustainability in motion. There's also a cool Tesla design studio on-site that lets enthusiasts create their own dream ride.
