Number plates are essential and subtle. Like a name, it provides your car with its own unique form of identification but it can also help the authorities keep track of the number of vehicles on the road. But most of the people wouldn’t think twice about number plates, only taking note of them in situations such as road accidents or wanting to report someone for being mischievous on the road.
However, to some individuals, a number plate is very much important compared to the vehicle itself. That is why they would spend some ridiculously big amount of money to obtain the unique plates they want.
Here is the list of the most expensive number plates in the world:
1) D5 – DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
2) O9 – DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
3) 1 – ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
If you wonder about the 2nd most expensive plate in the world, this is it. It belongs to another Abu Dhabi man when he scored the plate at auction for a solid 31 Million AED. However, he is currently facing jail time for fraud as the cheque he wrote bounced due to insufficient funds in his bank account.
