Car Fanatic

Fred has always been a fan of nice cars and one of his favorite magazines growing up was Nitro, fueled with hot rods, american muscle and old timers. While the first couple of cars he owned after getting his driver's license were nowhere near the vehicles featured in Nitro, life granted Fred several opportunities to lay his hands on some fantastic pieces of machinery. The first car worth mentioning was a 2000 Mercury Cougar, powered by a 2.5l DOHC V6 engine developping 176HP to the wheels. Fred's car got featured in the 2004 Euro-NECO calendar for the month of August.

Once in Dubai, Fred came closer to his dream by acquiring a 2009 Ford Mustang GT500. His first Shelby was powered by a supercharged 5.4 V8, roaring a brutal 500HP, and Fred joined the team leading the Emirates Mustang Club. The Shelby eventually got replaced by a 2005 Mercedes SL55 AMG, still equipped with a supercharged 5.5 V8 engine exhibiting similar performances to the Shelby. A 2001 Audi A8L Quattro, powered by a 4.2l V8 developping 300HP was added as a daily driver to spare mileage on the AMG.

Both cars got replaced by a 2014 Dodge Durango R/T, which - with its 5.7 HEMI V8 - was supposed to be quite sporty (R/T stands for "Road & Track"), but Fred was missing the exhilarating noise and driving experience of the Shelby too much. Today, he drives a convertible 2010 Ford Mustang GT500 and enjoys it thoroughly.

Who knows what's next...
