what is GCC car?
Are the gulf cars different? The only difference I see is that I don't have front parking sensors.
GCC stands for Gulf Coast Cars. The biggest difference is since the car will be in 120f+ temps, the manufactr's add special additive to paint to protect it. Additionally, the cooling systems are different to handle the summer heat. If you plan on bringing the car back no big deal, but keep tons of wax on it and garaged. If you plan on selling there, you will lose about 5-7% value since its a non-GCC car. I've shipped many maybachs, bentleys, and high end benz's to the gulf. Enjoy the car, its a nice ride.
