that one lady seems racist, but I do agree that the supercar owners should chill out, especially with so many people in the streets.

Pretty cool - thanks for posting.

I didn't realize they fly the cars over to London for the summer and then fly them back... crazy.

definitely an interesting watch... lots of social/cultural issues to ponder.

As someone who has had to put up with these idiots when just working in London, I have every sympathy for those that actually have to live with it.

Sadly money talks, and our political masters largely turn a blind eye as these people and their families actually own most of London now

any one can jump in a super car mash the throttle down and look all "dad ass"
try that in a bike...try opening up a 1l super bike around a corner...hell in a straight line.
i live in NJ home of some very interesting trust fund babies....and i can't tell how how much fun it is to see them on their super bike flying down the highway in a straight line but getting off...oh got to do that in 1st gear you know....why?
Simple...high sides are a bitch!

Anyone can whack the throttle and go straight on a bike as easy as on a car. Lots of "spare parts" from these guys down here in South Florida

Nah man, try it on an R1 hell even a ZX-14 will go vertical on you quick if you are not smart.
I know I've ridden many great bikes.
Hell you want to die quick? Go pick a Vmax....
3-2-1 light speed!
and well if going vertical won't throw you off...then there is the going down part! Nothing more fun than seeing a squid come down fast and hard seeing sparks fly tank slapper tank slapper tank slapper splat!

These cars all have stability control and TC and so you can be a total squid and a major ass no problem and keep yourself in the gene pool for a very long time.
Bikes....nope.

Look there is a time and a place for everything. It's about respect and care for others. There are race tracks go there. Respect people.

When I moved in I spoke to all my neighbors about my bike. First I said "I'm sorry if my bike bothers you at 7am when i'm going to work." and you know what..not a single person was angry at me. I push the bike out away from the garage and into a parking spot away from the building when i turn it on. I keep it relaxed until i am out of the complex. Why do i do this?
Simple, I respect people and they respect me. It's called being human.

The same for the car, i let it idle in the garage. I've asked my neighbor if doing so bothers her. She said no because she goes to work early. OK Cool! But i still pull the car out just to be nice.

Respect and love each other and the world will love and respect you.

Except for the fat chicks....they should be shot for sport!

I hate my life. When I go on vacation, I worry about paying that $25 extra baggage fee.

Everytime I see a wealthy middle east owning a supercar reminds me this song.

In part thanks to Grand Theft Auto lol

I ride a Diavel

I was saying the same thing, though, hence the spare parts comment.

Anyway, as much as these guys are disrespectful with the loud noise and all, no one can deny how much business they bring over there, and I can't help but feel its a bunch of old people complaining. I enjoy seeing those cars and hearing them on YouTube.

Of course if it was outside my window for 3 months out of the year, I would feel differently

Definitely worth a watch.

Interesting to see the conflicting views between the filthy rich that go to london for a vacation and people that just want to enjoy living in a nice neighborhood.

not sure which side i'd take, i sympathise the residents, but I also understand why the boys do it, honestly, the kids don't sound bad, nor do they look rebellious, maybe talk to them first??

Yes - countless times.

And as for those of you that are saying why not talk to these people first, well, I worked with someone that had a near miss with one of these idiots, and when confronted, they just laughed at him and drove off.

A lot of these guys believe they can do just what they want.... and sadly, the lack of any desire by the authorities to prove them wrong only compounds the problem.

It's the double standards employed as well, as I can guarantee that if I drove into Knightsbirdge on a summer eve in my 135 and drove like these guys do, I would be prosecuted by the Police within a very short space of time.
