    Looking on the bright side, at least the owners won't have much trouble stumping up the parking fine.
    But even when you've just bought Harrods for £1.5billion, and the cars are among the fastest and most exclusive in the world, getting them clamped is still a bit of an inconvenience.
    The uniquely liveried supercars belong to the Qatari royal family, which bought the flagship store three months ago.

    On the left is a Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce, worth £350,000. In front of it is a bespoke specification Koenigsegg CCXR, one of only six in the world and worth a staggering £1.2million.

    I'm sure we've all heard the saying "more money than brains"..........I think this applies here.

    They'd have to be able to fit over SUV tires, which are going to be way bigger than those on a super car.
    Light travels faster than sound, so people may appear to be bright until you hear them speak...
