Rolls Royce, Ferrari and Lamborghini among cars in Dhs10 million fleet
Time Out Dubai staff
Ever wanted to get a ride in a Dhs1 supercar? Well a new fleet of taxis in Dubai will let you do just that. What’s more the trip will be absolutely free as part of the upcoming Dubai Motor Festival.
The Dubai Motor Festival takes place from November 19 until December 6 and the taxi superfleet will be in business for 10 hours each day during the weekends of November 21-22 and 28-29, and December 5-6.
Among the cars, each valued at more than Dhs1 million is a Lamborghini Gallardo and each has been fitted with a taxi light and stickers.
Or how about a trip in the more spacious Rolls Royce Ghost instead of the usual Dubai taxi?
For the most spacious supercar it is hard to beat the super stretched Mercedes G Class Limo.
If speed, rather than space, is more your thing then opt for the Ferrari 458 taxi. (But remember the drivers will observe speed limits!)
A Bentley Continental GT is among the taxi fleet coming to Dubai Motor Festival.
‘The Supercar Taxis will offer tourists and residents a dream experience. The idea behind this was to celebrate people’s passion for motoring. This is the first of its kind in the world and we want to engage the community,’ said Jin Chwen Ong, director of the Dubai Motor Festival.
