So do you need an example of what kind of a toys are going to be exhibited? Check out QT Services’ Wildcat which costs roughly $100,000 and is, as Emirates 24|7 puts is “the Land Rover Defender meeting the Hummer H1.” The news website does then engage in a lot of technical mambo-jambo, so we are just directly quote their description of the massive beast of a car: “The Wildcat series starts with the 300STR, which is a dual purpose, street-legal competition car with lifestyle-purpose custom upgrade options such as air conditioning, hi-fi and even a golf club compartment. The 400NSR, a contender for hill rally honours but the true jewel of the crown is the 500DKR, a full-blown rally raid machine, powered by the latest four-litre Jaguar V8 petrol engine putting out in excess of 285bhp.” Sounds pretty impressive, doesn’t it?
