Arab Lamborghini owner stopped by cops in Knightsbridge as Dubai’s supercars hit the streets

The playboys are back in town – and they’re causing havoc again with their uninsured supercars and unruly driving.

During Ramadan the millionaire boy racers had a limited respite from revving their Lamborghinis and Ferraris around Knightsbridge.

But as one fast ends, a different type of fast begins and cars and anti-social behaviour has returned.

The owner of this Dubai-registered Lamborghini Aventador fell foul of the law on Wednesday when he was found to be driving the £300,000 supercar without the correct insurance.

Officers from the Met Police swooped on the 217mph supercar in Brompton Road, near Harrods, and called for a low loader.

The owner of the Lamborghini, who bought the supercar from a man on the street in June, had to watch helplessly as it was carried away while dozens of onlookers photographed the embarrassing spectacle.

It will now be held in a Met Police compound until the owner can prove he is legally allowed to drive it in the UK.

The removal of the Lamborghini means there is one less supercar causing problems for locals and authorities.

Panda Morgan-Thomas is one of a number of furious locals who are having their lives blighted by the youngsters in their supercars.

She said: “These are beautifully engineered cars so why on earth would the drivers want to circle around shopping streets at 10mph? Lewis Hamilton doesn’t need to.

“Night time racing is the real problem for residents however and has continued to increase this year.

“The noise is horrific at 4am.  The police have promised to crack down on illegal activities – we’ll see.”

A number of supercar owners have had their cars seized by police officers including a member of Qatar’s Al-Thani dynasty who had TWO models taken off the road.
