I believe they do paintjobs on cars like this for the competition. It's hard to copy the design this way. When they officially release the car they will use normal paint jobs.

It's basically the same way Dazzle camouflage works.

UK government to clamp down on London's 'billionaire basements'



The rise in “billionaire basements” – subterranean home extensions in some of London’s most expensive boroughs – is attracting fresh scrutiny amid concerns over a rise in fatalities and serious injuries.

An investigation by construction inspectors from the Health and Safety Executive will look at properties in Kensington and Chelsea as well as Hammersmith and Fulham next week, as the government prepares to clamp down on unsafe practices.

HSE reported 17 deaths of construction workers over the last 10 years as a result of collapsing excavations. There were 27 serious injuries over the same period.

The construction industry is one of the most dangerous in the UK, employing 5% of all employees but accounting for 31% of workplace fatalities, according to HSE statistics.

Last December, Conrad Sidebottom, a company director, was jailed for three years, after labourer Anghel Milosavlevici was crushed to death at a basement excavation in Fulham. Sidebottom and another man, Richard Golding, were convicted of failing to take reasonable care for Milosavlevici’s health and safety.

Inspection teams will be looking for key safety issues: collapsing excavation, risk of building collapse from alterations, the dangers of handling heavy steel beams, and of poor access and risks of open or unprotected parts of the site.

Definitely. I guess we wont be referring to it as the 'Canary Wharf skyline' but rather the 'The Docklands Skyline' as half of it wont even be in Canary Wharf!

'we' might here, but the general public already uses "Canary Wharf" to mean anything between 1 Canada Square or the Isle of Dogs, I suspect it'll stay the Canary Wharf skyline for most!

The number of phases was increased from 4 to 6, as the scope of the project has increased.
