But this summer, the local police are paying more attention, possibly thanks to a Channel 4 documentary earlier this year that highlighted what they called Millionaire Boy Racers. (That's blocked in the U.S., but here's a clip on YouTube.) Nasser Al-Thani, a 24-year-old member Qatar's ruling family, according to British press reports, had his $500,000 glow-in-the-dark Lamborghini Aventador impounded by police in London. Why? No driver's license, no insurance documents and no front license plate. Other than that, everything was cool.
Police pulled the oil-and-gas heir over, and then quickly called for the tow truck.
It turns out the Lambo that took a trip to impound is just one of several super cars with preposterous paint jobs that the young Al-Thani owns. We have also seen this kid from Qatar with way more money than taste commission a purple Lambo with pink chrome. Yeech. Maybe the cops just busted him for epic bad taste?
