Streit Shaman 8×8
This was definitely a show-stopper. Seeing the Shaman 8×8 in all its glory was the highlight of the show. This amphibious and aggressive vehicle is powered by a 3.0L turbo mated with a 6 speed auto which cranks out about 146 hp. This is definitely the right car for survivalists in the UAE.

It pushes out a massive 2012 hp with 2000 Nm of torque which also makes it the most powerful production road car ever.
The 2020 Corvette Stingray is the first ever mid-engine Corvette in the history of Corvettes. It was on display at the show for the first time after its international debut. It looks absolutely mesmerizing and it’s obvious that it is inspired by fighter jets. We hope to see this car on the UAE roads by mid-2020.

From the sporty 370Z to the limited GT-R 50th anniversary Edition, we’ve seen it all. The UAE’s favorite off-roader, Patrol, and the all-new Nissan Sunny were also on display.
