Wheels up: when supercars take flight

Have you ever been on holiday and felt like something was ­missing? For an increasing number of well heeled passengers from the Gulf, they have found the perfect travelling companion: their supercar.
Earlier this year, a mystery “Gulf billionaire” is ­reported to have paid £20 million for an underground car park on Kensington Road, to house his collection of 80 supercars. The actual cost of shipping your car depends on a number of factors, including the technical specifications of the car, whether it has to travel on a freight aircraft or ­whether it can travel in the belly of a passenger aircraft – the latter being cheaper.

Emirates SkyCargo can transport cars to anywhere on its network of 155 destinations around the world.
