Many of the supercars seen on the streets of London are being shipped from Arab countries at a staggering 20,000 GBP per vehicle.

The Daily Mail has done an interesting piece about how supercars owners from Arab countries ship their prized possessions to London and some of them pay more than 20,000 GBP for a return journey. Qatar Airways is one of the airlines offering such services with their Airbus A330s shipping up to 31 cars from Doha, Qatar to Heathrow Airport in London.

Most of the high-end clients are from Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Qatar and are willing to pay a small fortune to transport their expensive vehicles via cargo jets to UK's capital. Some owners are actually on tour and spend only a few days in London before heading to other locations across Europe, such as Marbella in southern Spain.
