The billionaire new owners of Harrods appeared to be going nowhere fast after their supercars were clamped outside the store.

The £1.2 million Koenigsegg CCXR and £350,000 Lamborghini Murcielago LP670-4 SuperVeloce - believed to be owned by the Qatari royal family - were illegally parked outside the Knightsbridge shop last week.

The cars, both in light blue, were understood to belong to the oil-rich Al-Thani royal family, who own a string of luxury vehicles.

Qatar Holding group, which spent £1.5 billion in April buying Harrods from Mohamed al Fayed, is led by the Prime Minister of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabr Al-Thani.

A Harrods spokesman said: "Any matters relating to parking tickets and enforcement are strictly the domain of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea."

One of the cars - a 249mph Koenigsegg - is one of only six ever made, while only 350 of the Lamborghinis were built.
