Now mega-motors – which include a £1m Pagani Zonda and a Mercedes covered in crystals – are appearing at swanky addresses in the wealthiest areas of west London – including Chelsea, Kensington, Mayfair and Knightsbridge. A white Pagani Zonda from Saudi Arabia, which has the registration plate ‘999’, is one of the star cars so far.
It is a familiar face during ‘The Season’, and was regularly spotted during the same period last year. The seven-figure Pagani was accompanied by an outrageous-looking Mercedes 6×6, which was also on show last year.

Another car getting a lot of attention is a silver and black Porsche 918 Spyder – one of the most sought-after hypercars on the planet. Porsche is only making 918 of hybrids, and the German firm has already sold them all.
Initially the car cost around £700,000 – but they are now being sold second-hand for almost twice this figure.

Various Ferraris and Rolls-Royces, all from the Middle-East, have been seen outside The Dorchester Hotel, and numerous Lamborghinis have also been spotted. Over the next few weeks dozens of custom cars will arrive in the capital. And the number of ostentatious motors will be matched by the number of petrolheads photographing and filming them.

Paul Wallace, who runs the Youtube page Supercars of London, is one of those looking to catch a glimpse of the flash cars. He said: “This summer is set to be one of the best yet in terms of supercars flying in from the Middle East. In the space of three days, over 40 cars have flown into central London. I’m expecting to see a fair few cars worth in excess of £1m.”
