Black beauty ruled the scene for a long, long time but color stepped into the limelight in the recent past, and some as loud as can get. Now, apparently, it seems to be a period of peace and truce with white dominating most choices. Central London’s Dorchester Hotel has been attracting hordes of Middle Eastern magnates for their summer getaways and white seems to be the color of the season. Some of the oh-my-god magnificent wheels spotted all around the city include a $964,470 Maybach Xenatec, a $321,430 Ferrari 599, $1.93 m Bugatti Veyron, a $562,600 Rolls Royce Phantom Coupe in white and chrome, a $1.6 m Koenigsegg Agera R, a $281, 290 Lamborghini Gallardo and a $1.6m Koenigsegg Agera R cruises Knightsbridge. While most have reserved one of their beloved treasures, one person from Saudi Arabia, Dhiaa al-Essa got two cars, one a white Mercedes SLS ‘Gullwing’. To beat the region’s summer, the affluent from the Middle East take their yearly trip to cooler Europe and the US.
