Why do the Gulf States seem to get new exotic cars first?

I’ve noticed recently that whenever there is a new Hyper/Exotic car released onto the market, the first spots outside of factory/press events is always seemingly the UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia or their neighboring nations.

I’ve noticed this most recently with multiple posts of Rolls Royce Cullinan deliveries Black Cullinan Red Cullinan

This seems to be a common thing however as I’ve noticed it recently with the release of the redesigned Phantom as well as the McLaren 720S, and the Bentayga a few years back.

I realize that there are quite a few wealthy buyers in the middle east that love expensive cars, yet you would also assume that there would also be many preorders in Europe and North America. These gulf nations however always seem to get the hottest cars first

What does /r/cars think?
