The large, curved 33” diagonal advanced LED screen is the centerpiece, alongside the distinctive black crystal grille, and all the components are incorporated artfully, blurring the lines of separation among technology, lighting and décor.

A limited number of orders will be accepted. Aspiring owners across UAE and Kuwait are encouraged to claim their spot quickly to be amongst the first to join this new epoch of driving in the Middle East.
