This region already has a fair amount of luxury-loving petrolheads, but there’s still room for one more. Enter Mclaren, the performance car maker better-known for its Formula 1 racing:

The Middle East is on track to host McLaren Automotive’s first regional retail network, bringing to the market what is expected to be one of the world’s most desirable cars. The new range of high-performance sports cars will share the same headquarters that today hosts over 50 years of McLaren motorsport and performance sports car heritage, from Bruce McLaren’s 1954 Austin 7, to the record-breaking and legendary McLaren F1 road car of the ‘90s, and the most successful supercar ever in its price bracket, the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.

McLaren hopes to have moved in by 2011, the same time it’s due to release its next-gen supercar. That gives you a little time to start saving then, these cars don’t come cheap.

Perana Z-One looks fast, is fast

This is what happens when you mix a Corvette engine, a Zagato body, with a new South African manufacturer. The Z-One packs a 6.2L V8 engine oozing over 440bhp that goes from 0-100kph in under four seconds. Only 999 of these exotic sports cars will be made, so it’s no surprise that each will cost around US$75,000. But price aside, it looks absolutely stunning.
