    I can't believe no-one's posted about this yet.

    BBC News - Luxury car worth £1.2m clamped outside Harrods
    Going - Qatari royals' sports cars clamped outside Harrods -
    Supercars driven by Harrods' owners clamped outside store - Telegraph
    Harrods' New Owners, The Qatari Royal Family, See Luxury Cars Clamped Outside Exclusive Store | Strange News | Sky News

    The Qatari Royal family have bought Harrods in London. One of them drove to the shop in a £350,000 Lamborghini Murcielago. You can tell it's the Qatari's because the car is in screaming baby blue turquoise.
    Oh yeah, another one of them drove to the shop in their £1.2million Koenigsegg CCXR... 1 of 6 ever built. This is in the exact same shade as the Lambo.

    They promptly get a parking ticket, then clamped.

    Most of the coverage is about how someone with more money than God, who can afford some of the most exclusive cars in the world, has their vehicle immobilised for the sake of £70. I personally think applying the same parking rules to all cars is a good thing.

    Could you imagine the ruckus if one of the cars was scratched while the clamp was being put on? :)

    I read this story today made me laugh if you own a car like that i am sure £70 would be loose change.

    I think what Zenith is trying to say is that it doesn't matter how rich you are or what car you drive, you should still obide by the law

    Who knows the guy probably did it for attention he ownes a car that only 6 were ever made probably a gag between friends.

    Clamp fine should be %age of car value. That would get fun :)

    Horrible colour scheme tbh.

    Problem is, he'll get his secretary to deal with it and go somewhere else by cab/chopper/private gulfstream.

    If you're proper rich, the law doesn't matter... :(

    Better yet, get over it by going to your 100,000 grand apartment in Dubai for 2 weeks.

    tbh I don't understand why they would want to drive such a car through London. Surely a range rover or X6 or something would be much more comfortable?

    But more pointless :eek:

    Fucking 4x4's are the vehicle choice of the truly small of penis/brain when living so far away from a field.

    Because Range Rovers don't make you jizz with excitement when you rev the bollocks off the engine in a narrow street.

    The sound just has to be experienced to be believed.

    surely revving a powerful car in a narrow street where you can't floor it or manoeuvre is the ultimate sign of impotence? How does that make you jizz your pants? You're standing still and can't go anywhere!

    I don't care what sound it makes. Those vids of cars making noise are for those who were repeatedly dropped on their heads as kids imo. Also that particular shade of blue hurts my eyes :/

    yeah, 80% of the cars value when brand new.

    can you even FIT a range rover or X6 on most streets in london?

    I've been there once and what they use for roads there are narrower then our back alleys....

    Bet if they're members of the Qatari Royal family, they'll have diplomatic passports and won't pay a bean. TBH if the two cars weren't painted the same colour, this wouldn't even be a story; "supercar clamped in Knightsbridge" happens every day. The place is crawling with Lambos and Ferraris and Porsches are more common than Fords (literally on some days). Admittedly a Koenigsegg is a rare sight, but its inevitable that if you were going to see one in London, Knightsbridge would be the place.

    Videos on the internet are just shite. You have to actually have experienced it to get the jizz-factor. It's quite astonishing really :)

    they can rev all they want as I bike by, actually getting somewhere, while they sit encased in expensive impotence tbh.

    Ch3tan I aer teh win!!

    Jealous teedles? :)

    I'd rather be sitting revving it up in the supercar to be honest, as I suspect would most.

    TdC Trem's hunky sex love muffin Staff member Moderator

    not really. also I don't quite understand why you'd prefer an expensive bit of kit that you can do nothing with over a less expensive bit of kit that you can actually use :(
  21. Ch3tan

    Ch3tan I aer teh win!!

    Who says you can do nothing with it, see lots of expensive super cars in London and on the motorways outside.

    his piece of "expensive impotence" is probably getting him ten blow jobs a day. when you're bike can do that, then we can talk :p

    I've been in London traffic, and on the motorways. There is absolutely fuck all you can do with a Koningsegg there. The only place I would possibly warrant having one is in the north of Italy for the roads, or in Germany for the high speed limit. It's a complete waste anywhere else. (I know most of the people who own one have not bought it for the capabilities, I just don't agree).

    if a woman offered me a bj because of what car I drove she could fuck right off. I still believe in love hehe.

    dude, it was facing a *WALL* wtf is the point? also, the speeding away is...well...speeding. Here in Holland you'd have three speed camera fines before the on ramp ended :)

    so, once again, I fail to see the point. it's probably me though, as most of you seem to find a supercar standing still, doing fuck all, to be jizzworthy.
