Sante Fe did ok in the desert!
You've seen Range Rovers in the desert, but have you seen...a Hyundai Sante Fe?!

Here's a short clip of one of our runs with the official Ferrari driver up Jebel Jais in the new Ferrari GTC4 Lusso. Apologies for the shaky footage, as it was shot from a good old phone. Great road, perfect weather, excellent chassis and engine. Four wheel steering will take a bit of getting used to though.
