UAE: Meet the Rolls Royce of your dreams

Iconic and ultra-expensive Rolls Royce motor cars shone in the limelight for the World Luxury Expo in the Etihad Ballroom at the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi on Friday.

The Phantom Extended Wheel Base was produced by Rolls Royce as an anniversary edition and there are only 25 in the world, with Abu Dhabi holding 17 of them. The V12 engine has a 453bhp and at 70 mph over 90 percent of the power is available in reserve for effortless acceleration. It has a new 8-speed gearbox and gives reduced CO² emissions.

The flying lady, the famous Rolls Royce mascot, is made out of stainless steel. The Phantom is limited edition due to its signature from the historic Goodwood headquarters in the UK. The car has a sky light feature, giving passengers the impression of a starry night sky, along with a cubbyhole design of fireworks made from interlocking woods. It costs 2.65 million dirhams (€530,000).

The car is showcased as part of the third edition of the World Luxury Expo series. The event lasts from September 27-29. It will then continue to Doha from November 14-16 and then onto the kingdom of Saudi Arabia from January 28-30 2014.
