Another summer of supercars has stunned Londoners as a convoy worth millions of pounds brought busy Regent Street to a complete standstill, today.
Middle Eastern owners of seriously expensive cars attract attention of crowds every summer as they roar through the city’s centre.
Every summer between July and August bling kings from countries like Kuwait and Saudi Arabia fly their cars over to London for weeks of fun – avoiding crippling heat at home.
Cars costing between tens and hundreds of thousands of pounds were spotted travelling through London on Bank Holiday Monday.
More than a dozen supercars lined the streets for what will be one of the last of the season’s show off convoys by their rich owners.

Among the very impressive vehicles in the convoy was a Bentley Mulsanne worth £230,000, colourful lamborghinis, ferraris and BMWs with private plates.
The owners pay a small fortune – in excess of £20,000 for a return journey – every year for their metal marvels to be flown around 3,000 miles to England with them.
They often leave them parked in some of the capital’s most desirable spots.
They were joined by UK car lovers today as the owners unite over their love of luxury cars – and the pleasure of showing them off.

Arab-owned supercars arrive in London having been flown distances of around 3,000 miles in planes – costing around £20,000 per vehicle.
Qatar Airways is one such airline that ships the luxury cars from Doha to Heathrow. Secured to the floor of one of their Airbus A330s, the precious cargo can either be accommodated in a single row or in a side-by-side configuration.
