A highlight of this year’s Dubai Motor Festival (DMF), the Supercar Taxi fleet consists of 10 extraordinary cars, each worth Dh1 million or more. The taxis include Ferrari California, Lamborghini Aventador, Rolls-Royce Wraith, Mercedes SLS AMG, Bentley Continental GT, Mercedes G63, Audi R8, a stretch Mercedes G Class, and more. Among the scores of residents and visitors who got to enjoy a free ride on these dream machines was Kamran, a visitor from Pakistan who hopped onto a stunning Audi R8 from Atlantis The Palm for a ride back to his hotel in Downtown Dubai.
“It was an amazing experience. Every time I visit Dubai, the city seems to have some surprise or the other up its sleeve. And I must say I’m really struck by how professionally the whole thing is organised and run; I run an event management company myself, so I know what it takes to pull off such concepts.” Hattan Haroon, a Saudi national who rode on a Mercedes G63, was equally delighted. “It was a unique experience, my family enjoyed it very much. I actually wanted to drive the car myself. I hope I get a chance to do so someday.”
This weekend, commuters waiting for a taxi after a pleasant day of shopping at some of Dubai’s popular malls — as well as passengers stepping out of the airport after an exhausting flight — may have a stunning surprise awaiting them as the Supercar Taxi winds its way around the city to offer them a dream-come-true experience. On Friday, the supercar fleet will pick up customers from three popular city hotspots — Mina A’Salam at Madinat Jumeirah, Deira City Centre, and the arrivals area of Dubai International Airport Terminal 3.
On Saturday, the luxury cars will pick up customers from Mercato Mall and from Dubai International Airport Terminal 3 to ferry them to destinations within city limits. The Supercar Taxi is one of the signature attractions of the second annual Dubai Motor Festival, taking place from November 19 to 6 December under the theme ‘Passion on Wheels’.
