Money can buy you lots of things, but it can’t save you from London’s parking inspectors – even if your car is worth millions of pounds and you’ve parked it outside your own shop.
A Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce, valued at £350,000, and a Koenigsegg CCXR, one of only six ever made and worth £1.2m, had their wheels clamped outside Harrods last week.
According to the Daily Mail, the cars are owned by the Qatari royal family. The family, which has an estimated wealth of £2.4 billion, bought Harrods for £1.5 billion earlier this year.
So it’s unlikely the £70 fine will cause too many headaches. Meanwhile, we don’t reckon parking inspectors have a particularly fun job – but clamping the wheel of one of the world’s most desirable cars must surely be a memorable day at work.
