Interested to learn what the world's most expensive number plate is? Here's the "1" to watch quite literally!
Because the diminutive digit number 1 is set to become the World's most expensive number plate with an estimated value of 25 million Dirhams (more than 3.5 million pounds) when it sells at auction in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on February 16.
A similarly small registration number, the number 5, currently holds the record as the World's most expensive number plate, selling for a staggering 25.2 million Dirhams (again, more than 3.5 million pounds) .
Abdullah Mattar, Managing Director of Emirates Auction says, "Number 5 was sold for 25.2 million, which set the Guinness world record as the most expensive number plate. So we expect more for number plate 1". According to Mr. Mattar, the company expects fierce bidding from at least five people for number plate 1.
