After seeing some stunning performance cars in the United Arab Emirates, especially around Abu Dhabi, such a news piece was bound to appear.

It seems that in order to keep all of the Ferrari or other sports car owners in place, the Abu Dhabi police force has just received a brand new car. As you would imagine, it isn’t a Ford Crown Victoria or anything like that, as the police officers can now use a stunning Nissan GT-R in order to catch the bad guys.

The stunning four-seat supercar will be employed by the police on the many highways around Abu Dhabi and will definitely deter anyone from thinking they can escape the police (hint: GT-R 0 to 100 km/h / 62 mph is just 3.5 seconds).

Not a lot of companies can expect to make a profit by constructing a huge theme park dedicated to themselves, Disney being the one who started it all. But it seems that Italian supercar maker Ferrari hopes that its first theme park dedicated to its brand will break the mold when it will be opened next year, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

We’ve seen just how many enthusiasts are in the Arab country, and given the fact that it will be adjacent to the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 circuit situated on Yas Island, it will surely attract many fans under its giant red roof, sporting the biggest Ferrari logo ever made.

The theme park will occupy over 200,000 square meters (that’s around two million square feet), all indoor, making it the largest park in the world. It will include over 20 rides, including the world’s fastest roller coaster, racing simulators, karting and flume rides through a giant Ferrari engine and, the most interesting, a g-force drop tower, which extends over 200 feet in the air, breaching the 150-foot-high roof.

As well as these rides for the young children and for those young at heart, there will be plenty of other attractions for the whole family, at least according to Ferrari. The Ferrari World Abu Dhabi park will open next year.

Say you’re a rich Arab oil tycoon and you’ve just bought an Audi R8 in order to drive around the city. But here’s a shocker: there are plenty of Audi R8 cars out there. What are you going to do?

Well it seems that one smart guy decided to give its car a rather unique finish. Instead of opting for already classic cheesy options like gold or matte black, he decided to mess around and give his new Audi R8 a matte gold finish.

Yeah, these pics of this rather unusual model have been taken around a big commercial center in the United Arab Emirates. While to me it may look like a sacrilege to the R8, perhaps some might even find this unique finish rather attractive. Hopefully though, this trend won’t become popular among other Arabs with plenty of money to spend. What do you think? Don’t be afraid to leave us a comment below.

A few weeks ago we wrote about Afzal Kahn paying almost $900,000 for the “F1″ license plate in the UK. Thought that was too much for a license plate? Let us tell you that this is actually loose change comparing to the $14 million paid by Saeed Khouri for the “#1″ license plate, in the United Arab Emirates. Khouri is a member of a wealthy Abu Dhabi family, which didn’t make its fortune from oil-related business, as you’d expect, but from real state.

In the UAE, regular license plates have both arabic and Western characters, however there were also issued special license plates, that only have Western characters. Khouri’s $14 million smashed the record, held by another rich dude in the UAE, which bought the “#5″ for $6.8 million.

The plate was bought during a charity auction held by the Abu Dhabi Police Department. The past five auctions raised $56 million across 393 plates, with all proceeds going to charity. Money from todayy’s record sell will go to victims of road accidents.
