Koenigsegg CCXR and Lamborghini LP670-4 SV get clamped in front of Harrods [video]

Just because you have the cash to buy supercars, doesn't mean you can park on London's Brompton Road in front of luxury department store Harrod's.  A member of the Al-Thani royal family from Qatar is allegedly the owner of the custom finished baby blue cars seen in this video: a Koenigsegg CCXR and a Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce.

Both were booted by a parking warden for being illegally parked.  It is not known what was the unclamping fee of each car.

The baby blue color has been attributed to Ana Al-Thani, an oil baron from the emirate.  Al-Thani's collection also includes a one-off Pagani Zonda Uno in the color tone, amongst many others.

You think the warden was a little bit nervous about scratching the paint job or the wheels while putting on those clamps?

BrianWCF, yes, Qatar is an independent emirate with a ruling emir, and so is Kuwait. The United Arab Emirates is a federation of seven emirates with a ruling president.

Thanks for the explanation, but respectfully, that doesn't explain how Zack's usage of "emirate" in the article is incorrect. Can you be more specific how we made the mistake?

i saw that turquoise CCXR in person in PARIS before about 2 weeks along with the same color on a 599. He used to have an LP670 but i guess he switched the LP670 to this 1018HP CCXR But i might say, that car was really amazing

Well done by the parking warden. If he or his family owns the building it doesn't mean they own the street or parking spaces.

I think it's £105 to get the clamp removed. Plus the parking fine which is about £50. Not a lot of money to those guys but an inconvenience.

For them, those amount is worth nothing compared to their convenience. If should be done so it will be a certain percentage of the wealth, like that recent case in ?Switzerland. That will wake them up.

The word "emirate" in this article is a description of Qatar's form of government. There are three emirates in the Middle East: Kuwait, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. Educate yourselves people so you can avoid writing silly comments and embarrassing yourselves.

911_Turbo, I'll proudly embarrass myself then because I want to understand the mistake so it doesn't happen again. Is Qatar not an emirate? Because that is what Zack is referring to in the article. Perhaps not a great source but wikipedia states, "Qatar, is an Arab country, known officially as an emirate..." Is this incorrect?

Calling Qatar an Emirate is absolutely correct. However, because of heavy publicity of Dubai's emergence, it has become very common amongst Westerners when referring to the country it's in, the U.A.E, as the Emirates. This creates the common misconception of thinking that any country run by the Emirate system belongs to the U.A.E. A less misleading way would be to call it a state. That's what Kuwait calls itself in official documents and whatnot.

If I lived in London, I'd always carry a cordless sawzall in the trunk of my vehicle. Also I wouldn't be so arrogant to believe that the rules did not apply to me, no matter how much money I had.

No such thing as bad PR. I'm sure most of us would be on the side of the owners...although having said that, I'm sure the guy who did the clamping had a big grin on his face :)
