I quite like the colour. No point having a car like that for it to blend into the background.

ironically I bet the parking fine cost them less then the petrol to drive around looking for a proper parking spot.

Right colour, wrong car.

Riviera Blue GT3 RS is

No doubt they've got half a dozen of those tucked away too.

I'd quite happily pay the UN-clamping fee to park where I like if I had that sort of money.

I suspect that the release fee will be a minor frustration only. They probably have a man who sorted it for them.

Your right, The Family has just purchased the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, apparently the council turned the appeal down, and they like to park near the door.

Funnily enough that is incredibly close to the truth in terms of the way that the London property market operates.

the CCX is worth 1.2million one of 6 so quite rare lambo is worth 320k, it made all the papers so a few hundred quid for clamps to be in the paper was a small price to pay

You reckon they even had to pay the fines? The Qatari PM is in charge of the company that bought Harrods, how much you want to bet that the paperwork got 'lost in the post'....

Money always wins - it's the unwritten law of today.

The clampers probably just wanted to see the cars up close I bet they stood there for a while just looking at the cars they probably did it so that they can say to there mates " I clamped a 320k lambo and a 1.5mil konenzxhjfjskkdjjegg CCXR today beat that"

I so hate clampers those bas***ds they have done me a few times
