In a stunning display on the streets of Dubai, supercars recently took over the rustic roads of Riverland.

The faux French town, located within the Dubai Parks and Resorts complex, saw dozens of luxury motors: from Lamborghinis to McLarens on Thursday (22 February).

The dazzling array of privately-owned cars belong to members of Supercars Majlis.

A 300-strong club, its members in Oman and UAE are passionate about high-performance luxury vehicles.

They “share their interests and enthusiasm towards the super cars”.

As well as motorsports, including drag racing, they organise public displays such as these.

So which supercars were in attendance?

A rare sky-blue Lamborghini Centenario Roadster was a highlight.

While it cruised along the narrow cobbled streets at a safe speed, it can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in 2.8 seconds with its V12 engine.

Only 20 such models exist worldwide, leading excited spectators to whip out their phones to take photos.

The stunning model was first unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show to commemorate the 100th birthday of the company’s founder, Ferruccio Lamborghini.

It was priced at $2.3 million at launch.

It was joined by 44 other supercars, including a Ferrari California, McLaren P1, a McLaren Senna and a few Bugattis.

The Bugattis included a two mid-engine Chirons and a Veyron, which was once the fastest car in the world at 431 km/h (268 mph).

“It’s an obsession really, albeit a rather expensive one,” Qais Sedki, a member of the club who brought his orange McLaren 720s to the event, told The National.

He also owns a McLaren 765LT, a Porsche GT3 RS and a 718 Spyder.

“I’ve always had an interest in cars from childhood, playing with little matchbox models. And once you see yourself in the situation where you can own an actual supercar, it marks a new stage in any car lover’s life,” he continued.

“It’s good fun and I’m blessed to be in a position where I can do something like this. I think that’s the beauty of these types of events where we cannot just keep these cars to ourselves, but want to share them with others.”
