Dubai: In what can only be described as a stretch beyond imagination, a UAE billionaire has carved his name on an island so massive that it's spread over three kilometres with each letter more than half a kilometre long.
The billionaire, who goes with the first name of Hamad, carved his name in capital letters on his Al Futaisi island near Abu Dhabi.
According to local reports, the gigantic name is even visible from space although it was not clear when and how the name was inscribed on the land.
Hamad recently bought the world's most expensive car for USD 2.7 million (9 million dirhams).
The completed project picture was uploaded on the billionaire's Facebook site a few hours ago indicating that the project has very recently been completed.
The letters don't wash away as they form waterways to absorb the encroaching tide, the Emirates 24/7 report said. The UAE-based billionaire is a known philanthropist with focus on medical causes.
Hamad also owns an automobile museum in Abu Dhabi housing over 200 exotic cars. It was earlier reported that the he bought custom-made Bugatti L'Or Blanc fitted with a porcelain caviar tray. Hamad has also built the world's largest truck – Dodge Power Wagon – which is 64 times bigger than the original with a whole apartment inside in the middle of the desert.
The museum also reportedly houses a custom-built globe-shaped motor home said to be one-millionth the size of the earth.
