THEY shouldn't have too much trouble paying the fine — the billionaire owners of these supercars have just bought Harrods
The Qatari royal family had a rude introduction to London parking laws when a ticket inspector clamped their exclusive motors — worth more thanRM 7.38 (£1.5)MILLION— as they sat outside their own shop.
TheRM 5.91 (£1.2)million Koenigsegg CCXR andRM 1,722,324.79 (£350,000)Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce were illegally parked outside the posh Knightsbridge department store, bought by the family three months ago, last week.
Crowds of shocked tourists watched in disbelief as a traffic warden first ticketed then clamped both the cars.
The stunning motors belong to the oil-rich Al-Thani royal family, who own a string of luxury vehicles — all decked out in their own distinctive "baby blue" colour.
Qatar Holding group, which forked outRM 7.38 (£1.5)billion in April to buy Harrods from Fulham FC owner Mohamed Al Fayed, is led by the Prime Minister of Qatar Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al-Thani.
One of the cars — the beautiful 249mph Koenigsegg — is one of only six ever made, while only 350 of the Lamborghinis were built.
But both were brought to a standstill when they were clamped — although the owners shouldn't have too much trouble stumping up theRM 738.14 (£150)release fee.
An onlooker said: "It's not every day you see cars like this, let alone watch them get clamped.
"Judging by their cars, I shouldn't think the owners will worry too much about paying a couple of hundred quid to have the clamps taken off."
The family could have taken advantage of Harrods' valet parking service which charges aRM 39.37 (£8)for the first hour orRM 196.84 (£40)for 8-9 hours with an additionalRM 246.05 (£50)charge to store a car overnight.
The Al-Thani family have an estimated wealth in the region ofRM 11.81 (£2.4)bn as well as stakes in dozens of businesses around the world.
