Nissan celebrates rich heritage of the Patrol Super Safari with exclusive 2024 ‘Al Ostoura’ edition

  • What are the specifications of the 2024 Patrol Super Safari Al Ostoura edition?

Nissan has announced the launch of a special edition 2024 Patrol Super Safari to commemorate the iconic SUV and its esteemed position within the Nissan Patrol line-up in the region. Titled ‘Al Ostoura’, which literally translates to ‘The Legend’ in Arabic, the GCC-exclusive model pays homage to the Patrol Super Safari’s rich heritage and celebrates its deep-rooted connection to the people of the region. 

A Tribute to Heritage and Off-Road Mastery

A Tribute to Heritage and Off-Road Mastery

The Patrol Super Safari, affectionately referred to as the "VTC", is based on the fifth-generation Nissan Patrol, which was originally produced from 1997 to 2010. Its formidable all-terrain capabilities and class-leading power made it a popular SUV for off-road enthusiasts and thrill-seekers in the Gulf region. The enduring customer demand for this model in the GCC led to its revival in 2016 as the Patrol Super Safari – and it has been in production ever since.

The 2024 Al Ostoura edition marks the culmination of the legacy of the fifth-generation Patrol and features various exterior and interior design enhancements inspired by the region’s desert landscape. Marking its distinction are special badges on the SUV’s rear pillar and engine, featuring ‘Al Ostoura since 1951’ engraved in Arabic calligraphy, alongside the SUV’s iconic silhouette.

The distinctive Arabian desert dunes also inspire a recurring design motif in the Al Ostoura edition – proudly displayed on the spare tire cover and fender garnish, as well as interior elements such as the centre console badge and floor mats. The rich color palette, featuring two exterior color schemes, is complemented by 17-inch alloy wheels, distinctive body stickers and contrasting exterior inserts on the roof, bumpers and wheel arches.

Thierry Sabbagh, President, Nissan Saudi Arabia, INFINITI Middle East and Managing Director, Nissan Middle East, said, “The Patrol is a legendary nameplate for Nissan in the Middle East, and the journey of the Patrol Super Safari over decades is a testament to the deep emotional bond we have built with our loyal customers. By combining exceptional performance and nostalgic memories for GCC nationals and expatriates alike, it has successfully integrated itself into the cultural fabric of our region. The ‘Al Ostoura’ special edition encapsulates the spirit of the Patrol Super Safari and is our way to express our gratitude to the people of the region who have made it more than just a vehicle, but a cherished part of our shared heritage.”

A rugged and reliable off-road vehicle, the 2024 Patrol Super Safari Al Ostoura is powered by a 4.8-liter in-line six-cylinder engine, delivering 280 horsepower and 451 Nm of torque. Featuring Valve Timing Control (VTC) and Nissan Induction Control System (NICS), it offers exceptional off-road performance and impressive top speed on the highway. The power is seamlessly directed through a 5-speed automatic or manual transmission.

Beyond its powerful performance, the “Al Ostoura” is equipped with an electronically controlled power steering for effortless control at low speeds and firm handling at high speeds. This is complemented by cruise control, a tire pressure monitoring system, ABS, dual-front SRS airbags, and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) to ensure a safer and more connected driving experience, both on and off the road.

The 2024 Nissan Patrol Super Safari Al Ostoura is now available through Nissan's partner network across the Gulf region. This exclusive model joins the wider model line-up, which includes the Patrol and the race-inspired Patrol NISMO models.

The Dubai-based 2015 Lamborghini Veneno Roadster featured on SBX Cars has become the most valuable car ever transacted via an online-only auction platform, selling for US$6,000,000 last week. The sale surpasses a 2017 Ferrari LaFerrari Aperta, which previously sold for US$5,360,000 in 2022. This marks not only a new online auction record, but also an impressive milestone for the newly-founded SBX Cars platform.

The rare Veneno Roadster, only one of nine worldwide, had previously appeared at a well-known in-person auction house in 2020, with an estimated sale price of between €4,500,000 and €5,500,000, however, failed to sell.

Previously owned by a member of the House of Saud, the royal family of Saudi Arabia, the coveted road-legal 6.5-liter naturally-aspirated V12 Veneno Roadster has a maximum output of 750 PS / 552 kW / 740 HP and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds, with a top speed of 355 km/h.

Finished in a matt black over an interior trimmed in lime green and black leather, the super sports car also boasts lime-green pinstriping on the exterior, adding a touch of contrast and personality to its fighter-jet-like bodywork.

In the two months since launching, SBX Cars has registered thousands of global bidders from over 40 countries, and has sold cars into the US, Mexico, Dubai, Kuwait, Germany and Hong Kong. The platform is the world's first global premium auction site, selling the the most coveted and collectible vehicles to buyers all over the world.

SBX Cars also announced the exclusive rights to auction the highly-anticipated Lotus Black&Gold Collection - the world’s largest collection of Lotus historic cars and rare collectible assets from the famous John Player Special Formula One era.

The New MINI Cooper 5 Door

A few months after the launch of the new MINI Cooper 3 Door, the five-door Cooper is now joining the new MINI family. The MINI Cooper 5 Door is characterised by the brand's typical driving fun, extended space, and distinctive functionality. These make the five-seater an exceptional phenomenon in its segment, together with its unique design - a combination of tradition and modern, purist styling - and innovative assistance systems.

The body dimensions are almost identical to those of its predecessor and underline the basic idea behind every MINI: To create as much space as possible on a small footprint. In the case of the MINI Cooper 5 Door, this means an interior that offers enough space for five passengers. All of which benefits the occupants in terms of comfort and space. Short overhangs, clear surfaces and expressive accents also give the new MINI Cooper 5 Door its unmistakable charisma. Inside, digital innovations and an immersive user experience take the MINI DNA to a new level.

The larger body version of the purist MINI Cooper also delivers the brand's hallmark driving fun and agile handling. There is a choice of two efficient petrol engines which, combined with the modern chassis and precise steering, deliver the hallmark MINI go-kart feeling.

The three-cylinder petrol engine of the MINI Cooper 5 Door C generates 156 hp. The MINI Cooper 5 Door S is powered by a four-cylinder petrol engine with 204 hp. Hallmark MINI steering and powerful brakes ensure a high level of driving fun, safety, and comfort. Compact dimensions, short overhangs, and a small turning circle make the MINI Cooper 5 Door a versatile model for the city.

The new MINI Cooper is characterised by "Charismatic Simplicity". The design language of the current MINI family presents the traditional values of the brand with a striking clarity. The authentic design language of the new models combines advanced technology with elementary principles of vehicle design and brand origins.
