Guy leaves his Rolls-Royce out with keys to test how safe his city is

We're not sure his insurance covers this though.

Can you name a city where you’d be safe leaving a Rolls-Royce with its keys on show?

If truth be told, there are very few places where you’d get away with it.

That’s unless you live in Dubai.

One guy was brazen enough to try it out in his home city just to see if it would work.

In a video posted to his Instagram account, Ayman Al Yaman parks his white Rolls-Royce Cullinan kerbside near a busy highway.

He then takes the key, places it next to the Spirit of Ecstasy on the car’s hood, and heads off to the gym for a workout.

It’s not entirely clear how long Ayman spent in the gym, but when he returns the sun has gone down and it’s dark.

As he walks out of the gym and back towards his car, his Cullinan is still there.

It’s not like the Rolls-Royce was parked in a secluded location or that there wasn’t anyone around, either.

You can clearly see in the Instagram video that there’s plenty of people milling around the area.

And the key to the Rolls-Royce is still in the exact spot where Ayman left it.

To be honest, it doesn’t really come as a surprise.

Dubai’s not only littered with fantastic restaurants, great beaches and top hotels, the city is also known for being super safe.

While nobody was questioning Dubai’s safety, people in the comments were quick to question whether the video was actually genuine.

One user asked, “you leave your key and cameraman there too?”

Another said, “next time allow the camera man to record the times you were away, belive me someone will pick up that key and call the police”.

“That’s dubai. No one will steal the car 100 percent, but they will definitely alert police or any security person available.”

Expensive risk to take, but it clearly paid off for Ayman, who went on to ask which car he should experiment with next.
