Qatari Sheikh Brings Supercar Fleet To London For Summer

Multi-billionaires from the Middle East are well-known for bringing their expensive sports cars to the capital during the summer months, hoping to escape the boiling hot temperatures of their own countries during this time.

And Qatari Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad al Thani is the latest to bring his fleet of supercars to the city, transporting five fast hypercars all that way, according to the Daily Mail.

The seventh son of Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, ruler of Qatar between 1995 and 2013, had his Porsche 918 Spyder (worth £600,000), McLaren P1 (£1.2 million), Ferrari F12TDF, Bugatti Veyron (£1.8 million) and Ferrari Le Ferrari (£750,000) brought to Knightsbridge, where they were seen lining the quiet streets of London’s wealthiest area.

Khalifa bin Hamad, one of the ruler’s 24 children in total, is not the only Arab who has descended upon the capital with their prized possessions this summer, and Saudi billionaire Turki Bin Abdullah often brings his cars to London when he wants to avoid the sweltering heat of the Middle East.

His automobiles are particularly well-known as he has used gold plating services to make his fleet of motors stand out even more.

Among his collection of gold cars are a £350,000 Aventador, a £350,000 Rolls Phantom Coupe, a £180,000 Lambo Huracan, a £370,000 Mercedes AMG off-roader with six wheels, and a £220,000 Bentley Flying Spur, GD Online reported.

This comes as a gold-plated Maserati GranCabrio was seized by Kingston police officers on Kings Road after the learner driver of the £100,000 was found to have no insurance.
