Knightsbridge car parking space on sale for more than the price of luxury ‘supercar’

Knightsbridge car parking space on sale for more than the price of luxury 'supercar'

At first glance a prime piece of real estate in Knightsbridge for nearly £400,000 seems to be something of a bargain. That is until you realise it is for a car parking space only.

The space boasts 24 hour security, valet service and an “exceptional chauffeur lounge”, but at £390,000 it costs more than most of the super cars you would presumably put on it.

The space, which fits up to three cars, was first advertised on Rightmove last February so the price tag might be putting off a few punters, but if it is a bit steep, letting agents Foxtons has two smaller alternatives on sale for the comparative bargains of £210,000 and £132,000.

It is in the exclusive Kingston House estate in Ennismore Gardens, which was dubbed one of “the most expensive streets in Britain” by the Daily Mail in 2011 with the average house being worth £3,345,000.

And its not the only bit of prime vehicular real estate on offer on Rightmove at the moment. Another choice on offer is a space in the Knightsbridge Apartments development which is on the market for £325,000.

But if that is still a little too pricey there is another spot in the Knightsbridge on the market for a steal at £250,000.

Customised supercars belonging to wealthy Arab playboys line London’s most upmarket streets

Customised supercars belonging to wealthy Arab playboys line London's most upmarket streets

Expensive Arab-owned supercars – many of which have been expensively customised – have been spotted all over London’s most upmarket streets, and their drivers don’t think twice about parking on double yellow lines.

Lamborghinis, Ferraris and Bugattis are among the cars seen cruising around west and central London this summer as rich Qataris, Saudis, Emiratis and Kuwaitis move to Britain to escape the Middle East’s baking mid-summer months.

Among the supercars spotted include a £2.5million premium LaFerrari, £2million Bugatti Veyron and £700,000 McLaren seen parallel parked on double yellow lines outside five-star Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge last night.

Gary Tolson, sales manager at luxury car dealership, Tom Hartley, said: ‘It is extremely unusual seeing four of the most expensive cars in the world all parked next to each other. Many of the supercars you see around central London at the moment have been modified with paint jobs costing anything up to £30,000. A lot of them have also been given different wheels.’

A £350,000 Rolls Royce Phantom, customised with a £30,000 chrome paint job and expensive wheels, was also seen outside The Dorchester in Mayfair. Mr Tolson said: ‘This one has been really pumped up with huge wheels and paintwork which would have cost thousands.’

It was parked next to a bright orange £300,000 Lamborghini Aventador and a £270,000 Rolls Royce Ghost. The luxury cars are flown distances of around 3,000 miles in planes such as the Qatar Airways Airbus A330.

The Designer Bugatti Belt Buckle More Expensive Than Your Car

Bugatti Belt Buckle

What do you get for the Bugatti owner who has, well…a Bugatti? Well this new Bugatti Belt Buckle that costs more than most cars could be just the ticket.

Those lucky enough to own a Bugatti Veyron can now further pimp their 250mph supercar with what is probably the most expensive belt buckle on planet earth.

French company Roland Iten specialises in “exquisitely crafted” items made using the same machinery and expertise reserved for Swiss watches, the latest of which is the Calibre R22 Mark I Bugatti Edition belt buckle.

Iten says the belt buckle is an object of precision engineering much like a Bugatti engine. It has exactly 100 handcrafted components, which are made of solid gold, stainless steel and titanium.

Smoked sapphire crystals on the front of the belt buckle provide a view inside. Like the glass panels that showcase the engines on Ferrari and Lamborghini sports cars, these large crystals expose the complex, and gorgeous, internal mechanics.

The belt has all manner of fancy-sounding features including a “rolling click calibration lock complication”, “a vertical rotating friction controlled pin” and a “mechanically leveraged belt insertion clip”. Whatever those are.

Your £50,000 also buys you a choice of belt lengths ranging from 87.29cm for the more svelte millionaire up to 108.98cm for those with a bit more winter padding.

It is not known who bought the 1963 250 GTO race car as it was a private transaction, but it was purchased last month from its previous owner, Paul Pappalardo.

Pappalardo bought the car, chassis number 51111, in 1974. The sale price of $52 million is a 49% increase on the previous record holder, another 250 GTO which was sold last year for $35 million. That’s pretty good when you consider that when new in 1962, a Ferrari 250 GTO only cost about £6,000!
