Default Where can I hire an exotic car?

A friend and I are seriously thinking of hiring some sort of ridiculous car like a Ferrari or a Lambourghini or something else along those lines so we can take it on the desert roads and do crazy things

Can anyone recommend any firms in Dubai?

Can you get a long term test? Mercedes here often lend potential buyers (who they believe are serious) cars for a couple of days so if you could find one with a "Black" or even just a normal AMG demo car...

What a completely stupid thing to do. The more I read from you, the more I am sure you will end up in jail and/or deported before the year end. You are clearly in the wrong country if you wanna get pissed and take the micky out of the authorities all the time. They will get you in the end

I think you have me all wrong mate, I am a responsible person who can handle my drink and respects the laws of this country. Ok so I like to have a few sessions now and then as do most people, but you certainly wouldn't find me drunk and disorderly or being indecent on public beaches.

As for the drving side of things, I am a safe driver and a member of the Institute of Advanced Motorists. I am not stupid even though it might come across that way.

However, thank you for your concern, it has been noted

Point taken, but what about wanting to "go and get smashed" in your "Getting Messy at Waxys" thread? Just bear in mind that the Police monitor expat forums on a regular basis. .

"go and get smashed"
It was just a figure of speech, slang if you wish and not meant to be taken literally. However I can see how if it is taken literally by the likes of you, then it could easily be perceived the wrong way by the authorities.

Again, I thank you for pointing this out to me and will be more careful how I phrase things in the future

HOLY SH*T! That RS6 must have been nipping on a bit to end up like that! Awesome cars and solidly build, so it would need a fair impact to do that much damage.
