In a country where BMW sells more 7-Series limos than 5-Series and 3-Series sedans, taking a hot orange Mini Cooper S Convertible to the road was something out of the ordinary for the UAE locals. Like something out of a fairytale, the road ends at Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan’s palace at the top of the mountain. The Sheikh, who’s the current ruler of the Emirates, enjoys the world’s greatest road as his driveway. It's no surprise, then, that the road was built at an estimated cost of $100m. Fans of the roadway include Range Rover and Porsche engineers who regularly conduct hot-weather testing there.
