For those unaware, the Al-Thanis are the ruling family in Qatar with a huge supercar collection all in one shade: a very unique turquoise. The Al-Thanis are also the new owner of Harrods in London, where a couple of their supercars were recently sighted during the summer with boots on their wheels. Recently, residents near Harrods of London were complaining from an overwhelming amount of supercars turning that area into a race-track and now they have credit to their claim. Al-Thani’s Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-SV has been involved in a crash with a BMW M5.

A witness to the crash stated “The BMW smashed into the central reservation, bounced off and then hit the Lamborghini. Both cars were definitely traveling very fast.”

Furthermore, residents around the Harrods area are adding fuel to the fire stating “In the last two or three weeks we have been seeing more again. It’s largely seasonal in that super-rich Arabs from the Gulf bring their cars over here for the summer. We thought it was going to quieten down but it’s picking up again. It’s like a second season.”

“We are kept up until 4am because of the noise of these people revving their engines and racing down the street. These Bugattis and Ferraris make a huge amount of noise.”

Sometimes it’s nice to just sit back and admire someone else’s hard-earned money at work. SR Auto Group got their hands on #100 of 350 Lamborghini LP670-SVs out there in the world and added their own treatment. Can you really go wrong by going with a matte black treatment on one of the world’s rarest Italian supercars?

To go with the menacing flat black look, a set of 20-inch Pur Design One wheels were bolted onto the bull. The wheels aren’t overly flashy, and are probably a great option for those with a Lamborghini wanting something a little subtle yet sporty and classy. It sports a 12-spoke design with a concave style and this particular set was finished in a glossy black.

It’s not the orange and black Status design Murcielago, but it’s certainly an appropriately fearsome Halloween treat.
