Just because you drive a Koenigsegg CCXR and a Lamborghini Murcielago SuperVeloce...

Qatari royal family's matching Koenigsegg CCXR and Lamborghini Murcielago SuperVeloce (Riviera Blue) got themselves clamped outside their new store (Harrods) on Brompton Rd (its a street in Knightsbridge, London).

The Swedish-built Koenigsegg CCXR puts out a staggering 1,018bhp – making it 20 times as powerful as a basic Ford Fiesta. With a price of around £1.5 million it’s also 180 times more expensive than the blue oval :).

At £350,000, the Lamborghini is a bit cheaper than the Koenigsegg but its matching Riviera Blue paintjob makes up for it :P.

FYI - The Qatari royal family bought Harrods from Mohamed Al Fayed in May for £1.5 billion under its company name Qatari Holding, becoming only the fifth owner of the store since its 1850 creation.

The funny thing is that the owners could have taken advantage of Harrods’ valet parking service which charges a £8 for the first hour or £40 for 8-9 hours with an additional £50 charge to store a car overnight. [Source: SWNS]
