Luxury cars clamped outside Harrods

Two supercars were clamped outside Harrods in central London after they were illegally parked by the new owners of the high-profile department store, it has been revealed.

Last week, the Koenigsegg CCXR valued at £1.2 million and £350,000 Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce were unlawfully parked outside the Knightsbridge store.

The luxury vehicles, both in light blue, are thought to be owned by the oil-rich Al-Thani royal family.

The Knightsbridge store was purchased by members of the Qatari royal family from Mohamed al Fayed in April for £1.5 billion.

It was bought by the Qatar Holding group, led by the Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al-Thani.

A Harrods spokesman said: "Any matters relating to parking tickets and enforcement are strictly the domain of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea."

The Swedish-made Koenigsegg is one of only six ever made, while only 350 of the Lamborghinis were built.
