Cars and Coffee events are great. They provide the perfect opportunity to get together with a group of like-minded moto enthusiasts and either show off your ride, or sit in admiration of the others in attendance. No matter where you are in the world, it’s quite possible that you have an event that takes place near you. And what I feel to be the best part of these gatherings is that you never know what you’re going to see.
Usually you’ll see at least a small handful of jaw-dropping cars intermixed in with the rest of us that are still driving our jalopies while working towards one day driving our dream cars. However, if live in a place like Beverly Hills or Italy, then it’s possible you’ll see a couple handfuls of amazing cars. But when it comes to Cars and Coffee unlike any other in the world, nobody compares to the oil-rich countries of the Middle East. Considered by some to be the “supercar capital of the world,” the Middle East is a smorgasbord of dream cars all gathered into one location. It might be the only place in the world where BMW’s, Audi’s, and Mercedes are considered the boring cars.
A prime example of these spectacular Cars and Coffee events took place in the capital of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh. At first glance, you’d think it was more of a red carpet style event based on the way they have the whole thing set up. The first indication that this isn’t your everyday gathering is the velvet ropes surrounding some of the cars. Which seems ridiculous, but then again, if you’re rolling up in a multi-million dollar LaFerrari, P1, Enzo, Pagani, or something along those lines you can’t really fault them for that.
