Qatari businessman holds extravagant multi-million supercar races

A wealthy Qatari businessman has found the perfect way to indulge his passion for luxury vehicles – by hosting his very own supercar events.

Petrol-head Mohammed Al Kubaisi said the races have been extremely well-received by Qatar’s rich car enthusiasts.

The motor-minded businessman currently drives a powerful Rolls Royce Ghost – a vehicle with an eye-watering $270,000 (£177,000) pricetag.

Kubaisi’s latest event attracted 50 expensive supercars as well as numerous promoters and sponsors. The next race is set to be held in March.

The young tycoon earned his fortune going into business with his father at a young age. But for the wealthy 26-year-old the biggest trouble with his costly contest is deciding which of his luxury cars he wants to drive.

Kubaisi’s previous cars include a £150,000 Bentley Continental GT, a £191,000 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and a Ferrari 458 Italia worth £200,000.

“I had a Maserati Granturismo S – it was a nice car but I eventually sold it and bought an Aston Martin Rapide which I didn’t think was very good.

“I sold that and bought my very first supercar, the Ferrari 599 GTB which was great but it wasn’t quite powerful enough so I sold it and bought a [Mercedes-Benz] SLS 63 – but again I needed more power.

“So I waited around six months and bought the Ferrari 458 Italia – which is a great car.”

“Our first event in 2012 was during Ramadan and it went well. We gathered around 30 vehicles including supercars and European models,” he explained.

“We got all the cars from friends and contacts, and also from spotting them on the streets.

“Our next event was held at Qatar Sports Club and was even bigger, we almost had too many cars, including McLarens, Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Mercedes.”

North-east drivers most likely in UK to have personal number plates

North-east drivers most likely in UK to have personal number plates

A Moray town has the highest number of motorists with a personalised registration plate in the UK, according to a new survey.

More than a quarter of Buckie’s drivers have a personal plate, while Turriff and Fraserburgh are also at the top of the table compiled by insurance providers Admiral.

The study showed 26% of Buckie’s population had their own plate, followed by 25% of drivers in both Turriff and Fraserburgh and 24% in Banff.

About 23% of drivers in Westhill, Aberdeen and Wick had a private number plate, compared to just 1.9% in Cambridge and 2% in Shetland.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, oil workers, property developers, landlords and sub-postmasters were among the people most likely to have a private number plate.

The study, based on data of three million customers, also revealed that those who drove “prestigious brands” like the Bentley Continental GT, Porsche 911 Turbo and Range Rover Vogue were more likely to have their own plate.

Justin Beddows, spokesman at Admiral said: “The list of top 20 occupations is dominated by self-employed jobs.

“For some of these perhaps the status a personalised plate bestows is important to them.

“The occupations at the bottom of the list really are a mixed bag with journalists, physicists and ecologists.

“Maybe people in these roles are less impressed by them and prefer the anonymity a regular number plate offers.”

Want to smell like a supercar? Lamborghini unveils £300 fragrance

Want to smell like a supercar? Lamborghini unveils £300 fragrance

Renowned luxury car manufacturer Lamborghini have launched their very first fragrance.

Called simply ‘L1’ the scent, which is revealed as the first in a collection of four, will set you back almost £300 a bottle.

And while its £290 price tag may be a fraction of the cost of the new Lamborghini Huracan at around £188,000, it’s sure to make the average perfume shopper a bit sniffy.

L1, created by a team of master perfumers from Intertrade Group, is said to contain ‘rare ingredients’ to create ‘lasting deep notes: and a complex, unique and highly intriguing mix’.

The scent has top notes of lime, ginger, cardamom and pink pepper and a base including incense, styrax, white musk accord, and tobacco.

Only 999 bottles of the limited edition scent have been made to launch the Huracan LP 610-4 at Geneva.

For those willing to splash out on the smell of a supercar the perfume comes in an aluminium tube, brushed by hand and covered in black leather.

Its Alcantara carrying case, created in Italy, is inspired by a car tool pouch so you can pretend that you have the wheels to go with it and the set also contains two glass 25 ml refills of the extrait de parfum.

L1 will be sold at high-end department store Fortnum and Mason, where three more Lamborghini fragrances will be launched in October this year.

Underworld Gangster Mick Gatto Reviews Mercedes-Benz’s G63 AMG

Underworld Gangster Mick Gatto reviews Mercedes-Benz’s G63 AMG

Mick Gatto is best known in Australia for surviving Melbourne’s gangland wars and beating a murder rap.

That’s why the underworld figure turned corporate “mediator’’ was the perfect person to take a few test laps in a new pimped-up, heavy-hitting Mercedes-Benz SUV favoured by mobsters and gangsta rappers alike.

In his review for Wheels magazine, Gatto reveals himself to be a bit of a speedster, admiring the G63 AMG’s “zing” and running a few red-lights with the assurance: “Yep, that was a bit illegal, but not to worry.’’

A former boxer and still a heavyweight in every sense of the word, Gatto abhors sports cars, saying that driving a Ferrari made him feel like a crab “driving a lawnmower”, and complains even the G63 “doesn’t feel all that roomy inside.”

“We figured who better to review a gangster car than a real-life gangster,” said Wheels editor Glenn Butler, “It’s a brute of a car, perhaps not as refined as the rest of Mercedes-Benz’s range.”

The interview is repeatedly interrupted by wellwishers keen to pay their respects to Gatto, who says he is often recognised on the street since the Underbelly TV series lifted his profile.

“I never turn down an autograph or a photo,” Gatto said. “As my lawyer said: ‘You never know when they might be on a jury.’ ”

Bugatti Veyron Vitesse Black Bess Is the NEW “Legend”

Bugatti Veyron Vitesse Black Bess Is the NEW “Legend”

The penultimate edition in a series of six special edition Bugatti Veyrons has been revealed. The series is designed to honour the most important people and cars that have shaped Bugatti’s history.

Part of the Les Légendes de Bugatti (Bugatti Legends) series, this fifth car is reminiscent of the famed Bugatti Type 18 affectionately known as Black Bess, which at one point was the fastest road car in the world.

The Type 18, built between 1912 and 1914, was one of the most important Bugattis of the pre-war era.

It was powered by a 5.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivered close to 100 horsepower, which was enough to see it reach a top speed of 100 mph–a speed previously reached only on race tracks.

This makes the Type 18 a legitimate forerunner for the Veyron, and is thus regarded as a Bugatti Legend.

Three Bugatti Legend Black Bess Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse supercars will be built, each priced at 2.15 million euros. Considering all of the previous Bugatti Legends have been sold, we suspect this one won’t last long.

Lambo’s Design Chief Discusses Huracán Supercar DNA

Lamborghini Huracán design concept: interview with Filippo PeriniDespite the fact that the supercar has been out there for three months now, the Huracan appears to still be under the magnifying glass with some Lamborghini ‘purists’ say it is too simple.

However Lamborghini’s head of design, Filippo Perini, has released a video explaining that the Huracan was designed to be pure, simplistic, and functional.

Lambo’s Design Chief Discusses Huracán Supercar DNA

For example, the subtly hidden intakes and scoops not only enhance aerodynamics but also lend to sleeker look. It appears that the Italian automaker does, in fact, know what is’ doing.

A car that will do 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 202 mph is fairly impressive. Yes it is sleeker than other models but it makes up for being less aggressive by being physically smaller.

It’s this diminutive stature that makes it an easier car to drive. It also manages to be faster than its predecessor, the Gallardo, while using the same V10 engine.

All gripes aside, the Huracán has certainly proven itself. There have already been 1,000 orders received so far and it looks like Lamborghini wants to blow the previous Gallardo sales out of the water. At least 14,022 Huracáns will need to be sold in order to beat the Gallardo’s all-time record.

Here’s that video:
