The Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe must be one of the most 'baller' cars in existence, quite literally the boss of the roads, so I took out an example from Top Line Motors in Dubai to see what it's about.

Dubai Police SUPERCARS Private Escort! 570S, SLS and R8 http://shmee150.com/dubai-police-supercars-private-escort-570s-sls-and-r8/ http://shmee150.com/dubai-police-supercars-private-escort-570s-sls-and-r8/#respond Tue, 21 Feb 2017 18:09:02 +0000 http://shmee150.com/?p=10112 Dubai Police SUPERCARS Private Escort! 570S, SLS and R8

It's not every day you see an Aventador SV and LaFerrari being given a private escort by three of the Dubai Police supercars! But on Delmonya by Supercars Club Arabia, that's exactly what happened for the final leg of the adventure, with the rest of the army of supercars following behind.

After an enjoyable evening before at Yas Marina circuit, it was time for the last driving day and the short journey over to The Palace Downtown in Dubai to bring things to a close, and that was made even more special by some members of the Dubai Police supercar fleet leading the way; McLaren 570S, Mercedes SLS AMG and Audi R8.

For the journey I jump onboard 'Helen', a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4 Edizione Tecnica with @oman_1 - thanks for the ride!

An Evening With a LaFerrari http://shmee150.com/an-evening-with-a-laferrari/ http://shmee150.com/an-evening-with-a-laferrari/#respond Mon, 20 Feb 2017 18:16:44 +0000 http://shmee150.com/?p=10109 An Evening With a LaFerrari

It's Yas Marina time! I'm at the Grand Prix circuit with Supercars Club Arabia's Delmonya tour, armed with supercars including the LaFerrari and Aventador SV.

Joining the tour for the penultimate evening and final day driving, we catch up with the cars, making plenty of noise, and for the parade lap where I jump into the passenger seat of the Ferrari LaFerrari itself.

Then it's a case of watching and enjoying the cars on track, with plenty of gratuitous noise to go with them.

It's going to be a very short trip but I'm back in Dubai to join in the final leg of Supercars Club Arabia's Delmonya tour! On my arrival day I immediately caught up with some of the cars taking part, before heading over to check out the showrooms of both Tomini Classics and Al Ain Class.

The dealerships represent two of Dubai's finest displays but both showing very different cars. At Tomini you will find a wonderful array of fully restored classics whereas Al Ain is a more modern selection of the latest supercars.

I take a look at the new 7th generation BMW 5 Series, and specifically a 530d; playing around with the new remote key and vast array of features present in the car.

After a look throughout during the BMW UK press launch in Spain, it's off for a drive in the local region before also having a play with the new BMW Connected app and the capabilities within.

New Garage! Time for a NEW CAR!? http://shmee150.com/new-garage-time-for-a-new-car/ http://shmee150.com/new-garage-time-for-a-new-car/#respond Fri, 17 Feb 2017 18:03:00 +0000 http://shmee150.com/?p=10090 New Garage! Time for a NEW CAR!?

Call me crazy, but having finally moved my cars into a better home, I seem to have found myself with an extra parking space - and that can only mean one thing, let's choose a new car! I want it to be something to specifically use for various events this year like Where's Shmee and Streetgasm as we go touring around Europe.

The plan was for the AMG GT R to fill the space but with the car arriving towards the end of summer, there's space for something else to fill the spot beforehand, but what's it to be!? This is where I'd like to gather suggestions from you, seeing as it will be you guys who see the content to come. To start the conversation, collect your opinions and categorise the thousands of comments and ideas we've set up a full page at Qutee, which is a new website that allows me to discover and filter conversations with you guys: https://www.qutee.com/q/help-me-find-...

The thinking had been an AMG GT S, but that would detract from the GT R experience so here's some criteria to work from. We're looking for a luxury GT car, possibly a convertible, from a supercar or prestigious brand. It doesn't want to be a sports-sedan, or a hot-hatch, or a GTC4Lusso/Panamera that would replace the FF in due course potentially. Perhaps it should avoid being a V8 due to the GT8, 675LT Spider and AMG GT R all having the engine type, and naturally I have a draw to British brands like Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Aston Martin.

As you know the spaces in my home garage have been awkward; they were all rented individually and dotted around the underground, they didn't have access to power sockets for using trickle chargers and generally aren't suited to these kind of cars being small and with steep ramps to access. As I explained in the video, other than the capital investment, the pure running costs equate more efficiently across a wider variety of vehicles so it is not an expensive exercise.

So, somehow, this has lead me to think that a 6th car can be on the horizon for these purposes, but I want to hear from you guys via Qutee so head over and fire your thoughts at me and choose your favourites in the polls!

I would also like to thank Richbrook for hitting me up with the tyre bags: http://amzn.to/2lnx2wZ More on their site: http://www.richbrook.co.uk/

Additionally the covers I have bought are from Specialised Covers, from whom a £30 discount has been arranged using code: SHMEE£30 at http://www.specialisedcovers.com/

Sadly the time has come to say farewell to the RaceChip Panamera 4S Diesel after a pretty awesome little trip around Germany and the Alps, with a hiatus to South Africa in between!

The question though, would I get one to replace the Ferrari FF in due course? Well you'll have to watch to find out.

We are back in Meribel, France with the Racechip Porche Panamera 4S Diesel having some fun in the snow. Riding on winter tires and having four-wheel drive is a massive advantage to get from A to B in the snow. In the video, I will show you how well it behaves and I even try to slide it a little bit, although this proved to be quite hard since the Panamera has loads of grip.

INSIDE-OUT: Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet – Full Tour http://shmee150.com/inside-out-mercedes-maybach-g-650-landaulet-full-tour/ http://shmee150.com/inside-out-mercedes-maybach-g-650-landaulet-full-tour/#respond Tue, 14 Feb 2017 18:04:49 +0000 http://shmee150.com/?p=10080 INSIDE-OUT: Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet – Full Tour

Let's take a full and detailed look around the new Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet in the game reserve in which we have been based for our South African safari experience to launch the car.

Joining Mercedes for the launch of the new G Class based machine in the Madikwe Game Reserve on the border with Botswana has been arguably the experience of my lifetime. The Landaulet houses the engine of the G65 AMG, the structure of an extended 4x4^2 and almost looks of the G63 AMG 6x6 combined with the opening rear section made famous by previous generations of Landaulet.

Only 99 units of the G650 will be built, available in Europe, Middle-East and Russian markets with pricing information to follow at the Geneva motorshow where the car officially marks its debut.

I cannot thank Mercedes enough for the invitation to join them at this fantastic event to mark the launch of the new car.

I join Mercedes for the most incredible journey, into the Madikwe Game Reserve in South Africa for the launch of the new Maybach G 650 Landaulet; a truly special version of the G Class that will be built in limited numbers to just 99 units.

I've never previously been on safari, let alone in such a vehicle, and the setting could not have been better! As we head around the park, riding in the luxurious open rear cabin of the halo G650, it allowed the opportunity to spot lions and elephants. With a 630PS/1000Nm 6l Biturbo V12 from the G65 AMG, the underpinnings of the G500 4x4^2, and the interior seats and finish from the Maybach S 600; it's a remarkable machine.
