(Scroll down for video) A millionaire decided to have his luxury car washed on a busy road, causing cars to swerve and a traffic backup.

The wealthy Porsche owner caused chaos on one of the busiest streets in London, England, to have his $1.5 million Porsche washed and polished.

Motorists were forced to slow down and bus drivers had to change lanes so that they could safely pass the Porsche 918 Spyder as it was meticulously detailed in a parking spot on the side of the road.

Although the car was parked in a parking space off the road, vehicles had to move out of the way in order to stay clear from the open doors of the Porsche.

Men also stepped onto the busy road to wash the vehicle’s body and tires.

The hybrid car seemed to have only recently arrived to the United Kingdom from Saudi Arabia, and it was covered in dust and sand.

Instead of taking the car to a discrete location or to a car wash lot, the owner decided to have it done very publicly on Brompton Road in Knightsbridge.

Two men worked on the Porsche for about an hour, washing, vacuuming and polishing the car. The Porsche, which can travel 210 miles per hour, was reportedly brought to London for the supercar season.
