Eeks that purple Cayenne turbo and the odd blue S class look horrible. The green gallardo looks way better in comparison.

The rest of the cars are definitely drool maal.

I don't think this is the case. Many of the licsense plates are V.I.P. numbers[Pagani Zonda with KSA 999, the plate must of cost ATLEAST $1 Million]. I doubt an expat moving back would have such licsense plates. Also if you look at some of the pictures you can see that many of the Saudi exotics are parked togeather. Probably a group of Royals who travel togeather.

I actually know someone who does this a lot. I think on this form you guys know him as 0.7.0. Anyway he took his Ferrari F430 Novitec Rosso with him to Europe this year. I've seen several pictures of it online.

When you have oodles of money what not is possible. They all are some prince or son's of some prince and so on. They tip above 100 SR for valet parking.

Default The Arab "Kid's" toys in the UK! (Arab Supercars in UK)

These videos gave me a proper crisis! These exotics seems to outnumber the civilian cars in some Avenues. See the sheer number of Veyrons!

All the blue ones belong to to Qatari royal family. Since they bought harrods last year most of them are parked around there

You mean to say the Turquoise Zonda and LP670-4-SV. They were also in news a while ago for being fined for some charges and their wheels locked away by the cops

These playboys drive like they own the street. 2010 has the best supercars to be seen but was also the most dangerous. I myself have seen these guys have a couple of close calls back in 2009.

Btw the blue Lambo SV crashed quite a while back. It belongs to the Al Thani royal family. I couldn't find a pic of it on the site, hence am posting it below. He crashed into an M5.

Believe it or not, the residents of London have actually begun a campaign to get rid of the supercars!!

Quoting from a London news website
Quote:
“We are kept up until 4am because of the noise of these people revving their engines and racing down the street. These Bugattis and Ferraris make a huge amount of noise.”

Mr Beringer, 62, has launched a campaign to get rid of the supercars. “We have a petition with hundreds of signatures from people who all feel it has to stop. It's never-ending and we will see more accidents.”

A Lowndes Square resident, who asked not to be named, said: “These cars travel at more than 200mph and are speeding through narrow, residential streets. There have already been a number of accidents. Is it going to take a death to make them stop?"
I'd rather start a campaign to bring all those supercars to Bombay

According to the article I came across, it was the M5 which slammed into the SV.

Quote:
A witness who saw the crash said that theBMW lost control and hit the central reservation before bouncing off and slamming into the unfortunate Murcielago.

White lambo guy was probably in a dilemma either way he would get wet. I would take him good 15min to make the roof, by the time he does that it would probably stop raining( British Weather).

Mods can you just merge this thread: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/intern...urope-why.html

There are Tons of these hypercars everywhere in London. Have seen most of the ones in the videos apart from the SV and the Blue CCXR. Need to go to harrods soon for that.
