The annual parade of supercars covered in velvet, chrome and even china flown over to London by mega-rich Arabs is more vulgar than ever.

Touchy-feely: Passers-by in a posh part of London were stunned when they saw a 205mph Ferrari which had been wrapped in velvet

My other car’s a FUR-rari: The annual parade of supercars covered in velvet, chrome and even china flown over to London by mega-rich Arabs is more vulgar than ever

  • ‘Ramadan Rush’ sees a flurry of Middle Easter owners flaunt their wealth
  • Park Lane and Knightsbridge set to be clogged with Lamborghinis and Bugattis this weekend
  • Bugatti Veyron estimated to be worth £1.6m and has a top speed of 250mph

A Ferrari 599 sits outside a designer clothes store near Sloane Square in London. These powerful supercars, which go from zero to 60mph in 3.7 seconds and can reach 205mph, are designed to turn heads.

But this one is a real attention-seeker: its bodywork has been wrapped in black velvet.
Perhaps you could call it a Furrari.

As a statement of untrammelled wealth, this motor takes some beating. Normal 599s start at £212,000, but customised versions cost hundreds of thousands more. And when that black velvet gets spattered with dirt or mud, you can’t take it to a car-wash. Instead, every inch needs to be shampooed and hand-brushed by a team of flunkies.
