Ferrari’s theme park

Ferrari’s theme park

I’m quite excited by the prospect of a theme park devoted to Ferraris. It will be much more interesting than walking around a bunch of knackered merry-go-rounds, stopping to pat the goat in the working farm. This will be a petrolhead’s dream where red paint abounds, and where ancient aquifers are pillaged to keep the grass green. Yes, it’s in Abu Dhabi – it was once desert, but now awash in petro-dollars it blooms – both plants and buildings. One of the biggest Ferrari sales and after-sales centres worldwide opened this September in Umm Al Naar – Abu Dhabi : 1,700 smq comprising a 870 smq showroom, lounge, dealer selection area, after-sales, spare parts and mezzanine floor for pre-owned car sales. The Sheiks aren’t stupid – they know that their precious oil reserves might not keep them in Armani robes and cars with the prancing horse emblem- so they’re building the biggest tourist attractions in the world. Let’s hope they don’t run out of water first!
