The oil-rich nations of the Middle East have spawned a generation of chronically spoilt and bored young men who literally haven’t got enough hours in the day and days in their lives to spend the interest on the savings that are bursting out of their (dads’) bank accounts. So nowadays they do things like buy Bugatti Veyrons (please note the plural) to drive languidly around their fiefdoms in first and second gear, stopping off for coffee every hour or so until they want to die.
And then it gets really hot – we’re talking 40 degrees in high summer – and the pavement between a Veyron and a coffee shop looks like a long walk when you’re already sweating into your Prada Y-fronts, and they start to wish they were somewhere cooler.
