These Land Cruisers and Lexus LX 470s are dashing across the dunes outside Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
We recently asked Driver’s Seat readers to identify the location as part of our “Where in the World Are These Wheels?” contest. After drawing the winning entry from all of the correct responses, we are happy to congratulate Tricia Clements, title clerk in the Administration Department at Toyota Financial Services’ Western Customer Service Center in Chandler, Ariz.
Tony Mueller, general manager of Toyota Motor Sales’ Kansas City Region, visited Dubai with his family during a vacation in 2008. He was living in Beijing at the time while working on the launch of Lexus in China.

“The adventure in the desert outside Dubai is dubbed a Desert Safari and is put on by many local vendors,” he wrote. “You get an exciting drive on the sand dunes in the desert, and you end up at a camp for dinner and a show put on by local entertainers. This was one of the highlights of our trip.”
