Not surprisingly, this isn’t the first time a license plate has been sold for such an outrageous amount on eBay. Previous high achievers include the plates ‘1 STUD’, ‘ELV111S’ and ‘CRU5H’. However, the most expensive number plate to sell in the UK is the plate ‘M1’, which went under the hammer for £331,000 last year.
Commenting on this latest sale, eBay rep Jody Ford commented, “it goes to show that people will go to any lengths to get the perfect accessory for their car." In fact, sales of personalized number plates are increasing by 23% a year on eBay in the UK and are showing no signs of slowing.
