Why do super-rich Arabs drive around in ungreen super luxury gold Porches and other expensive cars while their poor countrymen face starvation?
These types of issues have been ongoing for some time in the Middle East, where white gold Mercedes Benz sport coupes have been seen in UAE locations like Abu Dhabi and $500,000 Lamborghini cop cars are now patrolling the streets of Dubai.
The great disparity between rich and poor has been the norm in most Middle East countries where it was reported recently that the majority of people in Yemen are on the brink of starvation. The utter reality of this wealth difference polarity was shown in a Youtube videa that filmed sons of wealthy Middle East oil magnates fly their super luxury cars to London and then spend time driving them around there.

What is amazing with these guys is that they actually do fly their luxury cars to the UK, an expensive endeavor on its own; and then tool around London Town in them. As you can see from the video, these cars, including Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Bugattis, and others cost enough to feed and provide for numerous families in their countries of origin. One particular Bugatti super car is reported to be worth around 6 million Pounds Sterling!
From a green driving standpoint, these super cars strike out as well by consuming high amounts of fuel. As the gap between super rich and super poor continues to increase in countries like Qatar, the UAE and Saudi Arabia (with many of the poor being under-paid foreign guest workers), the absurdity of these Arab playboys and their luxury cars will continue to receive media attention.
These cars make our previous reported Abu Dhabi white gold Mercedes Benz sports job example seem almost trite alongside them; bio fuel and all.
