The recession hasn't hit Abu Dhabi yet.

These 3 photos turned up in my emails yesterday with the comment "No wonder oil is so expensive." The car is "a Mercedes Benz owned by an Abu Dhabi oil billionaire festures the newly developed V10 quad turbo with 1,600 horsepower and 2800nm of torque, 0-100km/h in less than 2 secs, 1/4 mile in 6.89 secs running on biofuel.
That's not stainless steel, it's white gold.

I do not know about a new model but this is a McLaren Mercedes. Could be vastly updated and customized by oil sheik with V 12 motor and turbos but apart from the plating seems standard McLaren Merc on outside production ceased this year with poor sales numbers the reason.
Normally 5.4 litre V8 super charged with 650 BHP and 750 ft llbs of torque and tested by Jeremy Clarkson. Regularly see them in Munich, exhausts exit behind front wheels and is LOUD. Great hot rod. Soft top devastatingly slinky.
