Every year after the end of Ramadan, super rich Arab playboys descend on the streets of London with their luxury Supercars, many of them worth in excess of £250,000.
The car owners come from Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Kuwait and are willing to pay what many of us would consider a small fortune to fly their beloved cars 3,000 miles over to England. Once here they can legally drive the cars for up to 2 months. The price for a return journey for a spot on the Airbus A330 flight deck is £20,000 and each flight offers 31 positions, making full use of its double floored and side-by-side or single configuration.
The cars can often be spotted in luxurious and prestigious areas of London parked up on the streets in locations such as Knightsbridge. Permanent residents often complain of anti-social behaviour such as owners doing burnouts, revving their engines loudly late at night and sometimes trying to out accelerate each other. The Supercars on display range from Bugatti Veyrons that are worth in excess of £1 million or your more subtly priced Lamborghini Aventadors or Ferrari 458 Italia's that cost around the £200k - £300k mark.
Attracting attention is what the owners want, and this golden plated Range Rover is certainly no exception.
