One Of The Richest Parts Of London Is About To Anger Supercar Owners


But local residents are thrilled.

If you’ve ever taken a stroll through the London streets of Kensington and Chelsea around Knightsbridge, there’s no way you couldn’t have noticed something. More precisely, it was a ringing in your ears. To gearheads, the sound of supercars revving is wonderful. To local residents, it’s all become too much damn noise. The London Evening Standard is reporting that the local council is "now consulting on how to clampdown on the supercars, which it says have a 'detrimental effect to the local community’s quality of life.' "

If the new law is passed, then it’ll become a "criminal offense for drivers to rev engines, play loud music or rapidly accelerate." What’s more, the law will specifically not allow groups to drive in convoys, leave a car running while stationary or even honk the horn.

A local council member stated that he knows "there has been a lot of coverage of expensive cars racing around Knightsbridge and also parking up and revving their engines. We want to take steps to discourage these drivers from their antisocial behavior." But hey, if you can afford a supercar then paying for a ticket for revving your V12 won’t be a financial burden.
