"The customer paid cash. Many people pay cash here. I have an Indian client; he comes in every month with a suitcase full of money." Feeling a little inadequate? Don't worry: "About 70 per cent of my customers buy with a bank loan or on a finance scheme. Not everyone can afford outright.
"The ones that can are all over the world - people ship in from Russia, China, America. But only big cars," says Abdullah, nodding towards the Reventon. "But there are some big buyers here in the UAE - a royal from Dubai wanted to view a selection of cars today - that is why the showroom hasn't got so many cars today. We put six or seven on a truck - Aston Martin One-77, Bugatti Veyron - and drive them to him. He calls me in a few days and tells me which ones he wants me to pick up and which ones he wants to buy. To make sure these customers are happy, we have to have the best, newest cars always."
