£37k For a Number Plate!

By raccars Published

Would you pay £37,000 for a number-plate? Better yet, would you pay £59,000 for one? No?! Really?! Ah well; it seems some people will, as the DVLA has just announced its recent number-plate auction racked up sales of £3.7 million.

The most interesting plate was ‘SM11 THY’ went for a staggering £37,000, while the £59,000 plate in question was ’90 O’. Crazy prices, but it seems like there are loads of people out there willing to splash the cash on their dream private number-plate.

The next DVLA auction is in January, so if you feel left out there is still plenty of time to find your ideal plate and spend a lot of money on it!
