Thanks for sharing the pictures!

Could you tell me why there are some cars with Number plates in Arabic?
Surely, It can't be allowed? The Rolls Royce pictured by you has It's identification in both Arabic and English but the Bugatti, second RR & the G-Wagon do not.

There are plenty of exotic supercars in London with UAE, Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi plates, primarily because a lot of Arab Sheikhs have properties in UK and many of these exotics actually belong to the rich and princely college students hailing from the Gulf.

As for the plates, the cars must be in carnet so they have the registration plates of the respective countries where they were registered for use.

Correct me if I'm wrong, So they are officially not allowed but can be driven temporarily there under ATA Carnet? upto a year or whatever be the duration which I presume would be the same as these Arab students college semester.

Yes. It is similar to our Carnet scheme in India. Its driven by the oil dipped Sheikh kids in London. They also drop into London with their machines during the Islam month of Ramadan. The London spotters call the period Ramadan Rush, wherein they come down to London to "live life to the fullest".

Wow that is some serious spotting there.Bangalore is going to look so dry now in comparison.:P

In the Agera pic,is that an SLR roadster in the distance?

And the Black LaF is said to be Felipe Massa's.Any truth in that?

Jaguar logo and Miura pics,superb!

Black car in front of the Miura looks like a Ferrari 275.

Massa's is in Monaco. This one is a London resident. Also, Massa's has red interior with red calipers and red highlights on the exterior.

Just check the Huyara's escort car, its the mighty G63 AMG 6x6. You can also see it in the Red RR photo.
