“In keeping with the prestige, glamour and mystique associated with the supercar segment, visitors will be in for a real treat with some big reveals scheduled for the show, said Trixie LohMirmand, Senior Vice President, Exhibitions & Events Management, DWTC.
Andreas Bareis, Managing Director Middle East, Africa & Latin America for McLaren Automotive, agrees promising plenty to entertain visitors of McLaren’s standing during the five-day automotive extravaganza. “New at Dubai International Motor Show this year will be our 570S Spider, which has all the performance of the Coupé plus the extra exhilaration of open-air driving. We also have another two surprises, but more will be revealed at the show”.
Other exhibitors in the sector eager to show that the Middle East is on track to producing its own eye-catching supercars include Rimac, which will be showcasing its Rimac Concept One – an electric supercar – Prato and Shaali Motorsport, which will bring its UAE-made Shaali N360.
