Personal or cherished numberplates can now sell for more than the average priced house. On 10th December 1993 an anonymous buyer paid £235,000 for 'K1 NGS'. This astonishing figure was achieved at auction in just over two minutes! Other registrations which sold for impressive prices are: '1A' £202,000; 'S1 NGH' £108,000; '1 RR' £106,000; 'G1 LLY' £87,500; 'P1 LOT' £82,500 & 'ELV 1S' £75,000.
Thankfully, few car registrations are so expensive. Many start from below £250, so it isn't surprising that personal number plates are becoming increasingly popular.
Who Buys Personal Car Registrations and Numberplates?

Popular choices are names, initials, and words such as: 'CAT 1'; 'S4 NDY'; '1 UCY'; 'T6 NYA'; '1 EO'; 'C1 LLA'; 'M4 TCH'; 'B1 RDY' and '50 NGS'.
