Two men from the United Arab Emirates were arrested after a supercar span out of control and crashed into four other vehicles, police in central London said.

Abdulla Saeed Khalfan al- Dhaheri, 28, and Sultan Khalifa al-Muhairbi, 35, were held after the smash on Lowndes Square, Knightsbridge, where residents have complained about night-time car racing. It emerged yesterday that the car involved was a new £180,000 Lamborghini on loan from the Italian car maker to a client. No one was injured in the crash in the early hours of 25 July.

In a hearing at Isleworth Crown Court on 3 August, Mr Dhaheri was charged with perverting the course of justice and Mr Muhairbi with dangerous driving. Both are due to appear again on 12 October.
