Opting for Dh2 million
The winner of the supercar raffle, Altamimi, was given the choice of driving off in the Fenyr SuperSport, valued at Dh6 million, or taking home Dh2 million in cash. He opted to take the cash.
The Fenyr SuperSport was displayed around town and most recently at The Dubai Mall, between the Grand Atrium and the Aquarium, with shoppers able to get an up-close look at the car. The Dubai Supercar Raffle was organised by Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE).
Ahmad Al Khaja, CEO of Dubai Festivals and Retail Establishment (DFRE), said:
“W Motors, Idealz and our retail partners and DFRE successfully staged one of the highest value raffles ever held in Dubai, with prizes worth millions of dirhams won by two lucky shoppers. As part of the super giveaway, it was great to see Dubai-based companies such as W Motors and Emirates Airline and landmark retail destinations such as The Dubai Mall, MAF and others show their full support for their home city and its retail sector, which is a key pillar of the economy. The Fenyr SuperSport and the 1 million Emirates Skywards miles given away as prizes to lucky winners are synonymous with the city’s ability to reward people in unique ways, further enhancing Dubai’s position as a year-round shopping and leisure destination.”
Ralph R. Debbas, Founder & CEO of W Motors, said:
“We are extremely happy with the campaign’s outcome and honoured to have the Fenyr SuperSport chosen by the Dubai Festival and Retail Establishment as the highest value raffle within Dubai Shopping Festival and very proud to be involved in such initiatives by the Government, congratulations to the lucky winner.”
