Default How much would you pay for 51 NGH license plate? how about 400K USD??

Yup, I have seen it all...one lucky and rich sardar



It better be going on an Enzo or a Zonda or something else a total waste of money...

Mods: Can you please correct the title to be 400k USD instead.

but i doubt that would be nearly as expensive...200,000 quid, now thats some serious cash, thats like a Fully loaded F599 or LP640 + some change for exhaust upgrades

I doubt our SIINGN IS200 fall in the same category

They should just make it like the US, personalized license plates, what the hell is so hard about it..I got what i wanted for 91 bucks on top of regular, now thats how it should be

Indian version of a similar thread exists where this is mentioned ...

Team BHP - (VIP Car numbers)

I see where you coming from autopsyche, £201,000 was without VAT after adding that it got to £254,000 !

Actual Sold dates n prices from DVLA (UK Trransport Auth.) website ...



Also I wouldn't mind buying ASH15H someday, from who ever has it !
I recon it would be nothing less than £50k in todays date !



Cheers,
ash

Going by the title of the thread , I'll pay nothing at all ...but I'd pay 1K$ for ' maxbhp' , and with 400K USD , I'd get myself a BMW M3 CSL and Lifetime supply of 98Octane petrol .

Not much. I'd pay about fifty bucks, which is great. My name ain't Singh.

Perhaps they transferred number from/to another machine.

Btw, my friend says his cousin has "PUNJABI" on his plate in New York on a Hummer H2.

And here's a video of it:

This is nothing compared to what the arabs pay for their exclusive number plate!64 Crores I think is the most expensive for the number 1 in UAE.
