Arabian Automobiles Infiniti delivers first Vettel Limited Edition in the UAE
With only 50 examples being sold in the region, Arabian Automobiles, the exclusive dealer of Infiniti in Dubai and the Northern Emirates and largest Infiniti retailer in the Middle East, has handed over the first Infiniti Vettel Limited Edition in the UAE.
Commenting at the handover, Hussam Baghdadi, deputy general manager of Arabian Automobiles Infiniti, said: “Infiniti Vettel Limited Edition is unique – a car designed by a Formula One World Champion and delivered to the market while he was still reigning champion – it is unlikely this will ever happen again. Designed to be ‘fit for a champion’ the world’s most exclusive crossover embodies the Infiniti difference: a premium performance car, reflecting the brand’s passion for Formula One, which stand out from the crowd. We’re sure our customers will enjoy the Vettel Limited Edition’s one-of-a-kind ownership experience.”
Graeme Snodden, the first person in the UAE to take delivery of the Limited Edition said: “The Vettel Limited Edition is the third Infiniti I’ve owned. I bought my Infiniti FX50 in 2009 and Infiniti JX35 just a few months ago and both have been faultless and the service from Arabian Automobiles has been great. When I saw the Vettel Limited Edition, I liked the styling and being a big Formula One fan as well I was immediately interested to make it my next Infiniti. It looks great, drives really well and I’m thoroughly looking forward to owning it.”
Featuring an aerodynamics package developed in collaboration with Infiniti Red Bull Racing, the Vettel Limited Edition can claim both sleeker aerodynamics (drag is reduced by 5%) and, with the optional rear spoiler fitted, more rear downforce (an additional 30%). Other numbers confirmed by Infiniti include an upgrade of the 5.0-litre V8 to 420hp (up from 390hp) with torque of 520Nm. It also sounds good as it goes thanks to a special exhaust system.
