They are turning heads all over town – rich boy racers are roaring round the capital in their souped-up supercars.

Playboys, here for what is known as The Season, have shipped over Bugattis, Lamborghinis and Rolls-Royces from the Middle East to show off their wealth.

Some of the more outrageous motors seen in London include a £370,000 six-wheeled Mercedes G63 AMG and a gold Range Rover, with the registration number 666.

The sight of the cars has got some salivating – particularly ‘carparazzi’ enthusiasts, who photograph and film the vehicles in action.

But not everyone is a fan. People living in Knightsbridge say drivers turn the area into their own personal race track, while police say some owners laugh at the law by parking illegally and driving without insurance.

But Paul Wallace, of YouTube channel Supercars of London, thinks they get a rough deal.

‘These super-wealthy individuals pump millions into the economy and fulfill fans’ dreams by bringing super rare cars here,’ he said.
