The latest in luxury and technology - the Senturion key
SENTURION HAVE DEVELOPED AN ELITE SUPERCAR KEY THAT CAN COST AS MUCH AS $113,000
UNLIKE IN MOST REGIONS around the world, owning a supercar in the Middle East does little to make you stand out from the crowd. Spend a few minutes on any road in Dubai, Doha or Riyadh and you will see an array of the world’s most expensive automobiles.
In order to make a statement, owners will invest millions in customising their cars. Yet very few will own the exclusive Senturion key – a luxury bracelet that becomes an entry system for your supercar. Showcased at the inaugural Gulf Concours event at the Burj Al Arab late last year, there was no shortage of interest in the unique car key.
