    Half a million pounds for number plate...!!

    Re: Half a million pounds for number plate...!!

    Lol he payed more for the number plate than for the car itself....

    Re: Half a million pounds for number plate...!!

    Is this the guy that owns project Kahn? I think the most expensive plate worldwide was in Hong Kong, years ago a man paid 14 million HKD for the number plate "9". 14M is over 900k GBP in todays exhange rate.

    Re: Half a million pounds for number plate...!!

    I never understood how that plate registration thing (and the astronomical prices people pay for a certain letter/number combo) in England works.

    Here in the states, if you want a "vanity" plate you simply pay and extra $50-75 bucks and tell them what you want written on it. So long as no one else in the state has already selected it, you're good to go.

    Re: Half a million pounds for number plate...!!

    The most expensive number plates in the world (#5) was sold last year in Abu Dhabi, UAE for $6.8 mln (Dirhams 25 mln). The #1 is expected to go on sale this year and without a doubt it will break that record.

    Heist, think you want a plate that is already in use.
    you pay the guy who own it $1000 and he gives it to you.

    that's how it works in the UK.
    the plate "F1" was owned by Essex, and they auctioned it out..
    the winning bid was 440,000 GBP.

    Here is a video piece on the same subject:

    He put the $7 million plate on a modern Rolls. I would have taken the opposite approach and purchased a $7 million car or collection of cars. To each his own I guess.

    I don't think you should worry about his garage.
    he has a very nice collection of cars.
    the plate is just a bonus.
