MB&F HM8 and Classic Cars in Dubai (1973 Porsche 911 and 1974 Ferrari Dino)

Posted by WatchAnish on

Just about a week ago MB&F has launched their latest addition to the Horological Machine series by introducing the HM8. We had the pleasure of seeing it live and presenting it together with the brand in Dubai’s M.A.D Gallery. The next day we took the 2 watches for a spin in a couple of legendary rides.

HM8 has a second name – CanAm. That is because it takes inspiration from the already classic CanAm racing cars. Second best thing we could get (that would be street legal and vintage) was arguably the most notorious Porsche 911 in the world – a match for the HM8 – 1973 Carrera RS. Our friends at Tomini Classics had delivered the car to our photoshoot set, and it was a perfect fit.

Next up we went on a drive in something a lot more exotic. A vintage Ferrari 246 GTS Dino back from 1974, just a year older than that Carrera RS. Vivid yellow colour still looking extremely fresh and new, and the spec of the car! A 2.4 cc V6 with the engine being located in the middle. Add that to the Targa Coupe and you’ll have the perfect weekend classic.
