23 images: The wildest cars of the Middle East

Almost like our Congress's parking lot

Middle East exotic cars

Each summer, it’s now a staple tradition for a harem of high-end hypercars to swarm the streets of London. A cursory glance at the number plates reveals that a lot of them hail from the Middle East. So, in order to disrupt the seasonal migratory pattern, we dispatched our supercar paparazzo to see what happens on their home turf during the winter. Along with sunburn, our spy photographer also got a few surprises.

Aston Martin Vulcans, a gazillion Bugattis, many McLarens, LaFerraris, Paganis, Koenigseggs and even Mercedes monster trucks--all just casually parked around the place. It appears even Batman needs a holiday, as the Batmobile was also spotted in a mall car park. Casual.

There’s no doubt about it: The supercar stock that hails from the region is a shopping list of pure want. Don’t forget, this is a part of the world that uses supercars for its police patrol cars.

Have a look through the gallery, and tell us what your favorite is.
