World Most Expensive Car Wash

Do you think car washes in Shuwaikh don't really wash your car with passion! This is what you need. If you love your car so much, give it to this guy. He will spoil it, rub it, and wax it for around 2,000 KD. Is that too much for your budget? just stick with the 2 KD ones.

If the 1001hp Bugatti Veyron is not enough

If this ultra supercar is not fast enough for your taste, an upgraded 1200hp "Super Veyron" might be coming out soon.  I mean how else would you want to show off more than those with the 1001hp one!
The current Veyron is a 8.0 litter W16 cylinder engine with 4 turbochargers that gives you 1001 hp and over 407km/h top speed. If that is not exciting enough, get this. A full tank runs out in about 12 minutes with full speed and full power according to Top Gear. The car costs around 600,000 KD ($1.7 million).

Lamborghini recalling 2007-2008 Murciélago

If you thought only cheap cars get recalls regarding a manufacturing defect, think again. Lamborghini is recalling its 2007 and 2008 model year Murcielago coupes and roadsters for a potentially "serious problem that could result in a fuel leak and possibly a fire". The issues is in the welds holding the fuel pump support inside the fuel tank. Owners in the States can take their Lambos to their dealers for a "Free" fix.

I don't think this recall will ever get to Kuwait. Since consumer rights and safety is not taken care of. So for all of you owners, try taking your Lambos to Alghanim dealer to get it fixed for Free. I think you might need a "Wasta" even for recalls.
