The empty road slicing through the vast reservoirs of sand around me is intriguing to say the least in its obvious temptation of speed. That said, I have the perfect car for the occasion, a svelte Ferrari Portofino M convertible. It's the newest Ferrari that has been re-designed and injected with a lot of more of what makes this supercar unique while still keeping the luxury trappings intact.

Off the highways, speed limits varied between 70kmph and 90kmph.
