Number plate 1 D sells for £352,411

Today is the last day of the DVLA auction at Ardencote Manor Hotel and Country Club, Warwick. Once again there have been some great sales, showing the resilience of number plates.

As expected, the registration '1 D' was the star of the show when it sold on Wednesday 25th March. A record breaker even before the auction had started by commanding the highest ever reserve set for an auction of this type. It didn't take long for the bidding to reach £100,000 and the plate eventually sold for a hammer price of £285,000. The total price paid including fees and taxes was a staggering £352,411. This sets the record for the highest price at a DVLA registrations auction.

The number plate was bought by Lebanese property developer Nabil Bishara who bought it as a birthday present for his wife. '1 D' is expected to go on her Bentley.
