... and the living is easy ... for some, at any rate.

Streets of Knightsbridge are jammed with Arab-owned supercars as wealthy Middle Eastern playboys flock to London for the summer (so what are a few parking tickets to a Veyron owner?)

Influx of foreign-owned sports cars and 4x4s is becoming an annual event in wealthy Knightsbridge and Kensington;
It is thought Arabs come to the capital from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and UAE to escape the baking hot summer months;
Cars spotted include a six-wheeled Mercedes AMG, a gold Range Rover and several brightly-coloured Rolls Royces.

High-performance supercars are pouring into west London as wealthy Arabs bring over their playthings for the 'summer season' in Britain.

The capital has seen a boom in the number of Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Bugattis on its streets as rich Qataris, Saudis, Emiratis and Kuwaitis move to London during the Middle East's baking mid-summer months.

The most outrageous car to make the trip over this time around is the six-wheeled Mercedes G63 AMG, an enormous 370,000 off-roader. A 220mph Pagani Huayra, worth more than 1 million, has also attracted attention from tourists and passersby.

There is also a gold Range Rover, various Rolls-Royces, Lamborghinis and Ferraris, numerous Bugatti Veyrons and a 1970s Datsun.

The rich Arabs stay in the best hotels and empty their wallets in London's most expensive shops, but they also cause problems with their unique supercars.
