Called the ART AS55k Yaas Edition, it gets 611bhp, high-performance brakes, some carbonfibre body panels and carbonfibre interior trim, including a gold-coloured steering wheel.

Other upgrades include chrome-plated exhausts, a stainless steel rear bumper and bi-xenon dual headlights.

Art has not said how much the Abu Dhabi royal family paid for the G55 AMG.
