Nearly everyone in Dubai loves a fast car that makes a lot of noise.
Words by Ayush Narayanan
Living in a country like the UAE, where cars are more of a passion piece than a necessity, we see some mind-boggling wheels and even the police use supercars to keep crime at bay.
A torque-load of amazing motors will be in one place this weekend – head to the Al Ghurair Centre this weekend to catch the Hot Rides UAE free showcase of sport muscle cars.
What’s a muscle car? It’s an American term for high-performance cars, usually rear-wheel drive, which are fitted with a large and powerful V8 engine.
Spread indoors and outside the mall, the event runs until Saturday, so you can drool over modified Dodge Chargers, Chevrolet Camaros and Dodge Challengers.
If the tune of a V8 doesn’t rev your engine, there will be live music, stage shows, giveaways and competitions.
This story has been edit to reflect the fact that the show will not take place in the mall’s underground car park and members of the public can’t bring their own cars. Free. Hot Rides UAE Show. Opposite entrance 2, Al Ghurair Centre. Friday (19th April), 4pm-10pm. Indoor showcase on Saturday, 10am-midnight. www.alghuraircentre.com
