Prestige Number Plates


Prestige number plates are those that belong on prestigious cars, and are generally very short and to the point. Otherwise known as cherished reg, Prestige number plates tend to come with hefty price tags, well in the hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Examples of Prestige Number Plates

Some of the most prestigious number plates are understandably the most expensive. The legendary A1 car registration is probably the most famous example of a prestige number plate, issued in 1903 in London. It was purchased by Earl Russell who had his Butler queue up all night outside the licencing authorities office in London in 1903. A1 is said to be worth around £10 million in today’s market, if it were up for sale, which it most certainly isn’t.

Other examples of prestige number plates are those such as 25 O which went for a mind boggling £518,000 in 2014, purchased by a Ferrari dealer. As is the case with most prestige number plates however, this is likely to be worth at least £750,000 if it went up for sale today.

Why Do People Buy Prestige Number Plates?

There are a few reasons to purchase a prestige number plate. The most common one is to make your prestigious vehicle stand out that little bit more. Not many millionaires will spend hundreds of thousands on a car and leave the DVLA registered number plate on it, they need a prestige number plate to match the vehicle or their name, job or some other aspect of their personality.

The second reason is investment, number plates generally only ever go up in value, so a collectors item like F 1 could go for hundreds of thousands one year, and over a million in years to come. The unique nature of these plates make them very appealing to investors and collectors, who want the most prestigious number plate to sell off or hold on registration, or on their own vehicle.
