Ferrari 458 Speciale Vs Porsche 918 Spyder Vs Aston Martin Vantage S: Video
What is the right car for driving in Dubai? With the city’s brand new and butter-smooth roads, there isn’t really any wrong answer to that question, as you’ll be comfortable in anything. But it is only new, exotic and very expensive cars which really fit in with the architecture of Dubai, and that is what the folks at /Drive chose to take with them on their trip. Though the Ferrari 458 Speciale, Porsche 918 Spyder and Aston Martin V12 Vantage S are all very impressive, the video isn’t really much of a review of them. In fact, you’ll get more facts figures about Dubai from this than you will about the cars.
The video is more about how much fun it is to drive a supercar in UAE, and it does look like a blast. Most significant is the winding mountain road that they take toward the end. It’s a fantastic bit of driving with an amazing view, up there with the best driving roads in the world — in stark contrast to the highway they take to Abu Dhabi earlier, nicknamed the Highway of Death. Matt Farah chooses not to drive an Aston Martin over a mountain on a dirt road. Probably wise.
