And while their supermodel drivers are the ones usually taking the attention, yesterday it was the Lamborghinis, Porsches and Ferraris stealing the show.

About 120 cars rolled off two jumbo jets at Prestwick airport, making their way to Edinburgh for a pit-stop on the Mound. The Ibiza-bound rally started in Miami, USA on Thursday.
