Supercars invade streets of London

ON March 13, I went into central London to spot supercars for my YouTube channel, MySupercarJourney.

I based myself in Mayfair and Knightsbridge, around Harrods, Park Lane and Sloane Street.

This is because the cars cruise around these urban areas to be photographed by us car-spotters.

This wealthy area is always buzzing with tourists, especially on sunny days, which gives it a nice, warm atmosphere.

Arabs own a large proportion of the supercars and they fly their vehicles over to London to escape the scorching climate of the Middle East.

This extravagant trip costs around £40,000 for a return flight and a bodyguard.

In previous years during the summer months, hypercars such as Paganis, Bugattis and LaFerraris have been imported into the UK to cruise around.

I saw some insane and rather breath-taking supercars. These included a jaw-dropping Ferrari F50 in Giallo Modena (yellow), marked at around  £1.2million and with a top speed of 202mph, a lavish McLaren P1 MSO Edition and a Lamborghini Aventador in a beautiful iridescent purple and orange.

The Aventador can reach a huge top speed of 217mph and can do 0mph to 62mph in 2.8 seconds.

If you were to buy all these supercars you’d be short of no less than  £2.5million.

My day was complete when I spotted a chrome gold Ferrari 458 Italia and a Mercedes six-wheeler in satin gold.

I filmed the day on my camera and have recently uploaded the final cut of the video to my YouTube channel.

If you would like to see the film from the day, type “MySupercarJourney” in the YouTube search engine.
