The Plate/Car is owned by a Peter Sing Verdi. I think he owns the clothing store New Look. He also has a couple of Veyrons one with the number plate V1.

well, that apparently used to be the case. F1 at one point used to be the most expensive number plate in the UK. its owned by Afzal Kahn, the dude who runs Kahn Design. now its said that a new plate, 4 HRH (for his/her royal highness) is the most expensive. and surprise surprise, even this one is owned by Mr Kahn!!

also, the MR51 NGH car also happens to be a RR DH.

Cheers!!

UK pays peanuts compared to UAE when it comes to plates.

The Al Khoury brothers bought "1" for 7 Million Pounds ~ 49 crores and "5" for 3.5 Million Pounds ~ 24 Crores.

In UK , the most expensive is "F1" (~440,000 GBP) followed by "S1" (~400,000 GBP) and the fourth expensive is VIP 1 owned by Mr Roman "Chelsea" Abramovich.

There's some Bentley in Jalandhar for which the owner paid 7-8 lakhs for 0001.

That's ok for bentley, but imagine 10 Lakhs for 0001 on Fortuner!

F1 is still officially the most expensive plate in UK. It is rumoured ( by his own website) that Kahn may have paid more than 400,000 GBP. But none of the official sites have the info yet.

The cars can change but the registration plates remain with the owner Akshay. He has bought it as an investment.

I dont see harm if they belong to you and can be sold seperatly later or can remain in the family for years at end. People in India also pay absurd amounts for numbers that go with the car when sold.

A friend had paid a fancy amount by Indian standards for J99FLY.

, Most of these single digits belong to the royal family i think. My friend has a few Numbers that can fetch him a few Lakh Dirams.
