Gulf News -- The car park of the American University in the Emirates (AUE) was transformed into something resembling the set of popular television programme Top Gear last week for its second annual car show.

They have cheap fuel prices, around $0.21 / Gallon. I would have fancy cars too if the prices in the US were similar.
