They did it again. License plate No 1 broke the world record as the most expensive car number plate, with a price tag of Dh52.2 million (US$14.5 million) in an intense bidding in Abu Dhabi last week.The buyer broke the record by paying more than twice the previous record which went to plate No 5 and is owned by his cousin, also a prominent businessman. The money generated will be used to establish a specialised hospital in Abu Dhabi. The proceeds of the auction are said to go to charity so I guess the buyer is hitting two birds with one stone. A contribution to charity and a special plate to boot.
A number plate for a more than a million dollars. Wow, I wonder if it’s really worth it?
Note: The Maserati MC12 Corsa is the most expensive car in the world costing Dh9.78 million(US$2.8 million) .
