When Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum—aka the supreme ruler of Dubai—granted a rare interview to the BBC World News recently, he did something few heads of state would have the cojones to contemplate:

He broadcast live from behind the wheel of his custom Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, a heavily armored, steroid-enhanced SUV, which he seems to favor, having three of them reserved for personal use.


Joking, at first, “I’m not a very good driver.”

Of course, when you own the road, you can literally tell all the poor people to get the f**k out of your way.

And when you basically are OPEC, you really don’t need to give a shit about miles per gallon either…
