A wealthy Arabian fella spent a record £3.5M on a single digit number plate which went on sale at an auction recently in the United Arab Emirates. The most ever paid in the World for a number plate.
The number plate “5” was bought for 25.2 million dirhams in Abu Dhabi, the oil-rich capital of the UAE.
Dubai-based businessman Talal Khouri placed the highest bid in the first auction of its kind in the UAE, with the proceeds going to charitable projects for people with special needs.
The price beat a previous world record set last July in Yorkshire, northern England, where the licence plate “M1” was knocked down for 331,500 pounds or $657,160.
Al Khoury also offered highest bids for two more numbers – number 55 for US$1.8M and number 45 for US$1.4M.
