The price of the plate that reads “1” hit the world record. It wins the top spot in the list of the most expensive license plates in the World.
According to the Emirates Auctions, most auto enthusiasts are looking to match their license plates with their car models. For instance, an owner of the Ferrari 599 is more interested in the license plate that reads 599. But, the number like 1 through 10 always remains to be attractive to everyone. Therefore, their prices usually go up on auctions since there is a huge demand for the low number license plates.
These auctions are put together by the Abu Dhabi Police Department. The revenue from the license plate auctions goes to the various charities. Therefore we cannot criticize their overspending.
