Saudi Millionaire Blocks Traffic On London Roads to Get His Porsche Washed and Polished
A wealthy Saudi Porsche owner held up traffic on one of London's busiest roads by having his £1million Porsche washed and polished in time for supercar season.
Motorists were forced to slow down and bus drivers had to change lanes so they could safely pass the Porsche 918 Spyder while it was meticulously detailed in a parking spot at the side of the road.
The hybrid car, appeared to have only recently arrived in the UK from Saudi Arabia and was covered in dust and sand.
But instead of taking it to a discreet valeter who could work on it in private, the owner decided to have it done very publicly on busy Brompton Road in Knightsbridge.
Two men worked on the car for around an hour, washing the Porsche and vacuuming it with a Henry before polishing the 210mph vehicle, which is over here for the supercar season.
The car was parked up in an on-street parking space, but passing vehicles were moving into other lanes in order to clear the Porsche's open doors and the men washing it safely.
