Picture of the Week: Going for gold

Gold cars appear to be all the rage with London’s visiting Arabs this season

 

They used to come only in August but now wealthy Arabs visit year round and with them come their exotically (and mostly appallingly ugly) personalised cars.

 

Going for gold – Wealthy Arabs – London – Gold cars – Gold Mercdes-Benz G-Wagen – Gold Bentley – Gold Lamborghini – Bad taste – Luxury – Knightsbridge
Going for gold – The cars were parked at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel on Friday last

Going for gold – The stretched Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen sports over-sized tyres

Going for gold – The Bentley is equally immodest

 

J. R. R. Tolkein once stated: “All that is gold does not glitter” but plainly this season Arabs have not taken that to heart as this is the colour that is all the rage with them. In Knightsbridge, a stretched Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen with over-sized tyres that was previously white now sports a gold wrap and with it comes an accompanying set of a Lamborghini (not pictured) and a Bentley. Such abominations can only be described as utterly tasteless and should be banished from our streets on reasons of good taste.

  1. Who do you dog people think you are? We come to London and we spend our money. You dog people should be licking our boots.

    1. Khaled, enjoy your day in the sun while you can. Very soon the demand for your oil will dry up as day by day the West rapidly moves closer to energy self sufficiency. When that day comes you lot will be back on your camels because without the West you are just a bunch of ignorant, disorganised squabbling tribesman.For thousands of years that is all you have ever been and that is all you ever will be. It takes more than money to gain respect and you will soon run out of money.

      1. No, impossible. You are so ill educated you cannot even rule yourselves. Always fighting and squabbling with each other. And why do all the men walk down Beauchamp Place holding hands and without a woman in sight?

  2. Not to be pedantic (Moi? Surely not) but let’s all remember the original which Tolkien adapted for his poem. “All that glisters is not gold” from “The Merchant Of Venice”. I don’t want all that time swotting in school to have been in vain.

  3. And while I’m in reply mode, on reflection, I think I’d rather see gold cars in the London streets than tattoo-covered chavs with tacky man-jewellery. Tattoo-covered chav girlfriends don’t work for me either.

  4. Note – All the original editions of The Merchant of Venice, 1596, have the line as ‘All that glisters is not gold’. Sadly ‘Glister’ is usually replaced by ‘glitter’ in ( usually frightful ) modern renditions of the play. What this has to do with expensive cars racing round central London is probably not very material …..
