Five of the world’s most expensive number plates of vehicles.
While our government does not dare allow the legal sale of car license plates by auction, in many countries a long time ago, anyone can buy a beautiful room, giving the car individuality. We found you the 5 most expensive car numbers, which are acquired by the car owners around the world.
Number plate “1”
Cost: 641 766 113 RUB.
This number plate was purchased by a businessman in Abu Dhabi Saeed Abdul Ghaffar Khoury in 2008. It is not only the most expensive number sold at auction in the United Arab Emirates, and the most expensive car license plate in the world.
The license plate “25 O”
Cost: 44 324 646 RUB.
Record price set by the Agency for licensing drivers and vehicles in the UK, was paid by the owner of the dealership Ferrari John Collins in 2014. Now this takes pride of place on the Ferrari 250 SWB once owned by rock star Eric Clapton. The car itself is worth £ 10 million (855 688 150 rubles).
By the way, on a standard number plate cars in the UK usually set the region code, the ID of a lifetime and an arbitrary sequence of three characters. The value of this number for the buyer was that the license plate similar to the name of the model Ferrari 250 that he purchased.
The number plate “F1”
Cost: 37 703 759 RUB.
In 2008, a businessman from Bradford Afzal Kahn (pictured) paid for the registration number plate “F1” huge amount of money. At today’s exchange rate is over 37 million.
Han set the number on his Mercedes SLR McLaren, saying:
“I think it’s a good deal because it probably costs 10 times more”
Later, he outweighed this room Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Carbon Edition. Last year, the businessman decided this room is for sale for 1.2 billion rubles (14.4 million pounds sterling). However until now there was no person willing to pay for this room an incredible amount.
Here is a link to the auction British license plates, where at the top you will see this license plate. For reference: the Number of “F1” is used in England for 109 years.
License plate “S1”
Cost: 34 801 569 RUB.
In 2008, at auction in Scotland, an anonymous party bought the license plate “S1”, belonging to one of the first car owners in Scotland – Lord Kingsburgh (the car was purchased in 1903). According to the buyer, this number will be used on an old red Skoda.
The license plate “VIP 1”
Cost: 24 387 112 RUB.
This state the license plate was bought by Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich in 2006. Two years earlier, the room was sold only 62,000 pounds (5 305 266 rubles).
How much are VIP rooms in Russia?
Unfortunately, in our country, as always, where big money, not without the shadow of a sphere. In Russia you can easily buy a nice license plate, but to make it official and legally impossible. Therefore, in our country invented workarounds gray buy license plate thieves. For example, today in the messenger Telegram, there are many closed groups where put up for sale beautiful plates. Also online you will find a lot of sites and offices that sell license plates on cars.
But such prices, as in the UAE or the UK, we have, of course not. However, for some license plates prices can reach up to 5-10 million. In most cases beautiful plates are 100-300 thousand rubles. And only some alphanumeric combination and the regions people are willing to pay more than 1 million rubles.
But soon, quite possibly, the authorities will lead the market of car numbers from the shadows. Most likely, this will occur shortly after the entry into force of new rules of registration of vehicles in the traffic police – 4 August 2019. We will remind that from this date the police will no longer issue license plates. Instead, the traffic police will assign in automatic mode alphanumeric combination of numbers. The blanks motorists will do in specialized MIA accredited companies.
