cars: Dubai desert metal overload

The snapshots in this forum thread are so insane, it's like a hallucinatory outtake from Three Kings. The poster's invited to a drag strip at Um-Al-Quwain, and drives in with Honda S2000 and hot wife. The Ariel Atom (super rare!), Corvette C6, Ford GT, and Merceded E500AMG show up, but then some ultra-rich "RRR" sheikh unloads the unholy troika of Ferrari Enzo, Porsche Carrera GT, and Mercedes SLR!

Follow-up racist posts (now apparently deleted) flame about the excesses of money involved , but it's hardly confined to the Middle East. Lee Raymond, the CEO of ExxonMobil, took home $14M in 1999 and $81M in 2004, so in addition to building another $50M house every three years he can buy all these cars every month.
