Your Marhaba motoring experts, Terry and Howard were delighted to be able to experience the power and luxury of the latest Nissan Maxima around the tight corners and long straights of the Losail International Circuit. The twisty circuit is super cool to drive round, especially if you are lucky enough to be behind the wheel of Nissan’s latest family luxurious sports car.

If you think it is not really possible to be a family car and a sports car at the same time, then you really have to take it for a test drive yourself. Nissan on Salsa Road will be happy to dispel your doubts. Call them at 4428 3333 or visit their website.
