I stopped by a crowded 360 Mall today to check out some of the rides participating in this year’s GulfRun event: numero 7.
Inside, the GulfRun boys set up two large stands with some wonderful cars on display. In the pic above we have a red Audi R8 GT (supplied by Fouad Alghanim & Sons Automotive Co.), a silver Ford GT and a white McLaren SLR 722.
