The news of the 38-year-old’s UAE shop comes just days after he premiered the latest installment of the Fast & Furious franchise – The Fate of the Furious – and marks his first business venture in the region.
And, according to the image caption, Gibson and his business partner have sold an impressive 17 jeeps in just three days.
“Shout to my business partner and one of the best men I’ve ever known ever @Alfa_Ow aka Oweis thank you for not only saying what you’re going to do but actually DOING IT! This is so amazing 17 custom jeeps sold in 3 days,” the caption reads.
This marks Gibson’s fourth official visit to Dubai, after first visiting the region during the filming of The Fast And The Furious in April 2014.
Speaking on his visit the actor said: “I found my smile again because of the UAE. I came to Dubai for my 35th birthday and I was sad, I was miserable. I was in a state of trauma and shock after the death of my brother Paul Walker. Then I came to Dubai and my life changed forever. I love this place and now I’m on a mission to make everyone love it like I do.”
