The wheels team may have just outdone themselves with their latest event. Last night was the 2017 wheels Car of the Year awards ceremony at the spectacular Waldorf Astoria on the Palm Jumeirah and what a night it turned out to be.

All of the key players of the UAE’s motoring industry were present for the eighth wheels awards ceremony and even though not everyone took home a beautiful trophy, they sure went home happy just by being present at the event. With over a hundred guests in attendance - a large majority consisting of My Wheels nominees hoping to be the first recipients of the brand new award - the night began with a special video explaining the whole process of the wheels Car of the Year.
