Ah, supercar owners. The very wealthy amongst us, the ones who drive the toys we crave. Especially through the cities we live in.
Lamborghini Murcielago LP640
Even owning a supercar, though, doesn't exempt you from abiding by the laws of the land. Including, ummmmmm, parking regulations. As two London drivers learned the hard way last week.
A Koenigsegg CCXR, one of only six made, was parked nose-to-tail with a Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce outside Harrods department store, in the ultra-pricey Knightsbridge neighborhood.
And both were clamped by London's ever-zealous parking enforcement officers (the British love their parking clamps and use them with great glee).
The cars were later released for £70 (roughly $110) each. Which isn't even pocket change for someone who pays almost $1.9 million to own a Koenigsegg CCXR. The Murcielago is econobox-cheap in comparison, costing a mere $550,000.
The rich. They're different from you and me. They have more money.
