W Motors, designers of the Arab world's first hyper car, and Brabus, a high-performance aftermarket tuning company, both confirmed that their latest models have been bought during the Show.
Dubai-based W Motors’ LykanHypersport 2013, the first hypercar designed in the Middle East, attracted its first buyer on the first public day of the show. With a flat 6, twin-turbo,750 horsepower engine delivering 1000 NM of torque takes the vehicle from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 2.8 seconds to reach the break neck maximum speed of 390 kilometers per hour.

The car is priced at 3.5 million dollars (nearly 13 million Qatari riyals), with the new owner also walking away with a Special Edition Cyrus Klepcy Watch, worth over 200,000 US dollars (almost 730,000 Qatari riyals).

This high performance SUV has impressive numbers both on and off the road, featuring a V 12 6.0-liter turbocharged engine churning out an incredible 800HP, and can hit a 100 km/hr in just over 4.0 seconds.

A Lebanese-made super car will become the most expensive motor in the world when it is unveiled later this year - setting buyers back £2.2 million.
But even those with the highest budgets to appease their boy racer fantasies might need to scramble for the new LykanHypersport - as only seven of the cars are being created this year.
The car becomes the world's most expensive above the Bugatti Veyron, which costs a mere £1.5 million.
Despite its huge cost, the car, which is to be unveiled at the Qatar motor show, is not as fast as the Veyron.
While the LykanHypersport does 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds, the Veyron does it in 2.5 seconds.
The luxury car even has diamond-encrusted lights.
Created by firm W Motors, the motor has an impressive 750 horsepower engine.
Tech-heads will also be impressed by the vehicle's 3D holographic display and its interactive dashboard.
The car, first imagined by designer Ralph Debbas, who previously worked with Aston Martin, has taken six years to design.
It was developed in alongside Magna Steyr Italia, RUF Automobile, Studiotorino, Viotti, and ID4MOTIO.
Audi has revealed a car lighting technology that can make the back of its cars show bright patterns to other drivers.
This 'swarm' is made up of thousands of small red lights that cover the width of the boot and react to movements of the car.
The screens are designed to show other drivers what the driver it doing - but motoring organizations told Cars In Doha the technology should stay a concept.
A new TV documentary highlighting complaints about rich, young Khaleeji men turning London’s streets into their own personal playground is sparking debate and discussion online about multiculturalism and tolerance.
“Millionaire Boy Racers” focuses on the so-called “Arab supercar season” in London every summer, when young male Gulf residents flock to the UK’s capital for lengthy holidays, often with their imported super cars in tow.
These men like to show off their cars in the central London borough of Knights bridge, the location of popular luxury store Harrods, which was bought by Qatar in 2010.
Several long-term Knights-bridge residents feature in the film, in which they relate tales of sleepless nights due to the volume of engine noise these super-cars create.
They also complain that the cars are driven erratically and at excessive speeds, posing a serious safety risk.
Although no Qatari men are featured in the film, the footage includes several super cars clearly displaying Qatari number plates, as well as images of the Doha skyline.
The documentary has proved controversial partly due to comments made in the film by residents about the effect they feel so many tourists from the Gulf are having on their local area.
For example, resident Justin describes the Gulf tourist season as “reverse colonization” and is seen telling a policeman that he doesn’t like the new multicultural nature of his home.
Conversely, two British car enthusiasts featured in the documentary explain why they love to see the cars on London’s streets, and express dismay at the campaign to get rid of them.
The film also showcases the extravagant lifestyles of several young male tourists from KSA and Kuwait, who are seen visiting exclusive nightclubs and running up huge bills during their nights out on the town.
