Does anyone have any knowledge of what new car prices are in Dubai compared to those of the UK?

Car prices are a lot cheaper than UK, running costs are a lot better as well, cheap fuel, no road tax - but looking on sites like Dubizzle you can get bargains - 1 - 2 year old cars very cheap.

With the large number of expats leaving all the time (who want/need to sell their belongings prior to leaving) this creates the best used-car market I have ever seen. IMO, it would be foolish to purchase a new car here in the UAE, being that the used-car market is so excellent for the buyer. But if you have the cash to throw away, go for it and enjoy that brand new car!!

Not only are they cheaper but the equivalent can also be more powerful (e.g. 1.5l instead of 1.4l for the same car in the UK).
