Jeddah Audi Center hosts Spanish ‘El Clasico’ match between Barcelona and Real Madrid

Members of Audi Sport owners’ club were truly excited during the “El Clasico” match between supporters of Real Madrid and Barcelona recently. The match was played at the Jeddah Audi Center and was organized by “Samaco,” the sole dealer for the Audi brand in Saudi Arabia.
Fans enjoyed the enthusiastic performance of both teams, which saw Barcelona as the winners with a 3-0 victory. The group was offered an exclusive opportunity to become acquainted with the new Audi A8, on show in the Kingdom for the first time.
The new Audi A8 presents the future of the luxury class. In its fourth generation, the brand’s flagship model provides the benchmark for “Vorsprung durch Technik” — with a new design language, an innovative touchscreen operating concept and a systematically electrified drive.
The Audi A8 is also the first production automobile in the world to have been developed for conditionally automated driving. Audi will gradually take piloted driving functions, such as parking pilot, garage pilot and traffic jam pilot, into production. The new Audi A8 will be officially launched in the first quarter of 2018.
Commenting on the event, Kareem Tas, manager of the Audi brand in Saudi Arabia, said: “Audi always endeavors to create events that fit with the Audi brand as well as to fulfil the aspirations of our clients and owners of Audi Sport models. This event constitutes the first step toward strengthening the relationship with our clients and we look forward to organize more such events in the future.”

Emaar to build ME’s largest Chinatown in Dubai

Emaar has announced a landmark development that is expected to further strengthen UAE-China relations, coinciding with the historic visit of President Xi Jinping of China to the UAE.
To honor Chinese expatriates in the UAE and further bolster business ties with China, Emaar will develop the Middle East’s largest Chinatown within the retail district of Dubai Creek Harbor, its six-square-kilometer mega-development, only 10 minutes from the Dubai International Airport and the Burj Khalifa.
“The retail precinct will occupy a central location within Dubai Creek Harbor — a destination which will be home to the world’s new icon, Dubai Creek Tower, and encompass vibrant lifestyle elements. Set by the Dubai Creek waterway, elegantly designed homes in Dubai Creek Harbor will offer spectacular views of the city’s dramatic skyline, the waterfront and the Ras Al-Khor Wildlife Sanctuary — home to over 450 animal species and migratory birds, including pink flamingos,” Emaar said in a press release.
