Last week’s Arab Run event had an unlikely celebrity contestant in the shape of one of Paris Hilton’s headline-hitting Bentleys.
The Dh1.2 million Bentley GTC used to belong to the notorious hotel heiress but has been snapped up by a romantic Dubai-based businessman.
The limited edition supercar, one of only 50 to ever be produced, was originally delivered to Hilton.
However, the Simple Life diva could not stand the white interior and refused to take the car.
That is when Dutch businessman Glenn Portier heard of the car and swooped to buy it as a Valentine’s gift for his wife, Puspa.
“My wife loves beautiful things and I knew she would appreciate this,” said Glenn.
Paris Hilton’s Bentley collection has been in the news since she was charged with a Driving under the Influence (DUI) offence and was also reported to have lost a car in a high-stakes poker game.
And the Bentley still gets plenty of attention while cruising the streets of Dubai.
It was just one of the Portier family cars at Arab Run.
Glenn’s Aston Martin Vantage, daughter Diana’s AMG SLK 55 Mercedes and Puspa’s Bentley made up the only family trio at the event.
“I always get stopped while driving my car around Jumeirah,” explains Puspa. “The local kids want to know about the car. It is such a fluid car, I love it.”
