Re the Veyron - they are young middle eastern billionaires who come to London to avoid the hottest part of the middle east summer. They load their cars into their private jets and then cruise round Knightsbridge for a couple of months. You cannot see from the photo, but they are still on middle east number plates. Its been well publicised as the residents dislike the noise from the (rather tame) "street racing". There was a pic in the papers of a powder blue Lambo and a powder blue Konnegseig (spelling?) that were clamped for illegal parking recently. Apparently these guys park anywhere as they know they can't get ticketed on the foreign plates - or presumably they just don't care. Its certainly not bankers - who in London anyway, are generally fairly private people with families who avoid the most ostentatious displays of wealth.
