Big instead of messy. That was the motto of the sheikhs around the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. We looked around for the hottest sleds while car spotting.
What the square around the casino is in Monaco, is the driveway to the W Hotel, once known as the Yas Hotel, in Abu Dhabi. The imposing architecture of the building provides the perfect backdrop for the sheikhs' car show, while only a few meters away the Formula 1 cars are doing their rounds.
Rolls Royce popular in the desert
Before the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the rich and beautiful naturally took the unique opportunity to present their gems, which we photographed for you. We were able to identify some trends. On the one hand, Rolls-Royce is very popular, but heavy SUVs are also in demand in the desert.
We also discovered real exotics such as the Fenyr Supersport from the manufacturer W Motors, which was founded in Lebanon. This hypercar is said to be limited to just 25 copies! The 900 hp four-liter six-cylinder boxer comes from Porsche tuner Alois Ruf.
Dream job hotel concierge
The VIPs didn't park their luxury cars in the underground car park themselves, but rather let the hotel concierge look after them in a relaxed manner. With so much pomp, who doesn't want to be a concierge at least once in their lives? You won't find so much variety in one day and so much horsepower under your butt anywhere else. It's just a pity that it's only a few meters to the parking lot.
In our picture gallery we show you the best photos of car spotting at the GP Abu Dhabi 2021.
