It looks like the Middle Eastern playboy silly season is firing up again after a new luminescent supercar was caught on video being driven at reckless speeds through the streets of London.

In this case it was an Iraqi Ferrari 599 being hooned around Sloane Square that has sparked the ire of safety campaigners. A spokesman for the Institute of Advanced Motorists suggested it was a 'miracle' that no one was hurt following such 'grossly irresponsible' behaviour.

The police are said to be looking at the YouTube footage, but the Met have so far proved largely ineffectual at preventing the capital's perennial visitors from breaching the speed limit. Still, we can but hope. Click below to see the video.
