HUNDREDS of Britons have made the annual trip to Saudi Arabia to show off their average cars.
Every year British car owners flock to Saudi capital Riyadh to cruise around in their their mid-range and secondhand vehicles.
Shop assistant Stephen Malley said: “Everyone’s eyes were popping out on stalks. I don’t think they’d ever seen an 11-year-old Nissan Micra.
“I pulled a few cool moves, like winding open the manual sunroof and parking comfortably in an extremely small space.”
Teacher Donna Sheridan said: “My Volvo 850 estate gets a lot of attention. Yesterday an Arab playboy in a Lamborghini asked me where he could get a car with enough room for children, wives and a big weekly shop.”
Meanwhile, Saudi authorities warned that the city is not to be used as a private racetrack, after a late-night contest between a Honda Civic and a 1992 Ford Scorpio.
