If there’s one thing traffic enforcers have taught us, it’s that nobody is above the law, even if you’re a pair of beyond wealthy Middle Easterners. As simple an infraction as illegal parking is, it’s still a little embarrassing for a lot us to have our tires clamped in those not-very-subtle yellow tire locks that never fail to catch the attention of a lot of passersby.

Now, it’s also one thing if your car is just your regular, run-of-the-mill Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla, but a Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 Super Veloce and a Koenigsegg CCXR – and in matching turquoise colors, no less – getting the proverbial clamping treatment?

Yikes.

Sure, the owners of these two cars probably wouldn’t have any problems paying the fine for their parking negligence, but still, seeing two beautiful thoroughbreds like a Murcielago Super Veloce and a CCRX – then noticing that they’ve been clamped – isn’t exactly the kind of first impression you’d want to have of the supercars.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Dare I say that they should simplify them? Or is that asking too much? I don’t like alphanumeric names for cars. Pure laziness and lacks emotion.

It’s almost as if they saw the 599XX and quickly released the press release.

It could use a better wing, IMO. Not necessarily a more subtle one, but less tacked-on looking.

If I lived in London, I’d always carry a cordless saw all in the trunk of my vehicle. Also I wouldn’t be so arrogant to believe that the rules did not apply to me, no matter how much money I had.

What happened was very embarrassing in my part. Two super cars clamped in London? I feel sorry for the owners, I bet they feel ashamed for having their tires clamped in the middle of everybody. Anyway, I love the cars.
