I recently wrote an article about a white Arabian Pagani Huayra visiting Beverly Hills U.S and how unforeseen of an event it was. After I learned about it, I decided I really should take a look myself, because not only are Paganis rare in the U.S, but any car with Middle Eastern license plates in this country is in general very uncommon. So yesterday, I went on a quest to look for Beverly Hills' best kept automotive secret…
I was worried that it might not be in the driveway of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, where I first learned about it on the internet, in the first place. Maybe the owner might be in town, or perhaps even back home in Saudi Arabia. Lucky me, it wasn't. As I walked down the steps leading to the driveway, I was stupefied by the sheer grandeur of the car. I have seen plenty of exotics in my life, but none had compared to this work of art. I've never seen such craftsmanship on a car before, and its looks attracted a lot of attention and picture-takers. Nobody cared about the Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead, the Ferrari 458, or the Bentley Muslanne around it.
As I was taking pictures, the owner, Yazeed al Rajhi, famous Saudi WRC racer and real estate investor came to take a bag out of the car. I felt like a paparazzo, even though my true purpose was to get some shots of the doors open, which was very neat.
Now before I really made any research on this Yazeed gentleman, who ones a lot more million dollar cars, I thought that he was another oil investor (sorry, stereotypical statement, but it's often true). But it turns out that he's a lot less boring than you think. Fine, he gets his fortune from another kind of investing (real estate), but more interestingly, he's a rally driver. He's also done some very good stuff, according to Wikipedia, like being a Saudi ambassador for the fight against drugs, and Unicef/Goodwill.
I really loved the colors on this car, and the red leather interior complimented the White/carbon-fiber exterior in a great way. The attention to detail in the design was impressive, and there is no amount of pictures enough to describe it.
I took a lot of pictures, and some of them aren't in this article. So if you'd like a certain part of the car (except the interior, and nothing to the exact strand of carbon fiber), I should have it.
