100 MAX Max Clifford Reg Plate Up For Sale
Clifford, who died of a heart attack last week aged 74, was often snapped driving his silver Rolls-Royce with the plate before he was jailed for sex offences.
The personalised registration is now being offered online by RegTransfers.co.uk Prospective buyers are told the eye-catching plate can be used on any car.
But branding expert Marcel Knobil told the Daily Star Sunday Clifford’s convictions could devalue it.
He said: “The number plate on its own has an intrinsic value, when it is not associated with the man who owned it.
“His name carries absolutely no value and no attraction, which may cause issues when it comes to selling it.”
Clifford was sentenced to eight years in jail in 2014 for eight indecent assaults on women aged 15 to 19.
He died in hospital on Sunday after being rushed from Littlehey Prison, Cambs.

It's around that time of the year when the late Ivan Semwanga would be painting the town red, but this year, Christmas won't be the same without him to many in the entertainment circles.
Some clubs are already feeling it and so are the partiers who were looking forward to open bars, seems unlikely this time around.
The Rich Gang's cancellation of their party goes further to confirm that it's not business as usual. UGX 15million was required to host a party at Guvnor, but sources say the current Rich Gang crew has failed to raise the amount.
Suzana has used more than just that to customize her Range Rover Sport ride. Other rides owned by Suzana include a purple BMW 2 seater, white Chrysler, Maroon Ford Mustang, black Hummer pick-up plus several FUSO trucks also known as 'Magulu Kumi' that help with the transportation of building materials at her Suzana apartments.
It may seem vain to want to pay extra for personalised number plates, but if it’s something you want, you should definitely go for it. It’s a purchase that may become more valuable in time (if you own a combination many others desire), but it’s also a personal purchase that will make you feel good.
And no, you’re not a bad person because you want to show off with your new cool car or you simply want to stand out from the crowd. On the contrary, it shows you are a creative, unique person who likes to embrace new trends and loves his or her car.
After all, we love our cars and most of us have a personal relationship with them. We even go as far as giving them a name so it’s only normal to want the rest of the world to know it using personalised reg plates. It would be a shame not to, given the fact that this possibility exists!
Now, if you decided you want a personalised number, you may be a bit confuse on how to actually do it. But don’t worry; the guide below is designed to walk first-time buyers through the brushwood of procedures and laws.
How to Buy a Personalised Number
The transaction per se is quite simple: you offer the money and the owner transfers you the right to use the numbers. However, the procedure is a bit more complicated and can be done in three main ways.
#1: Buy from the DVLA
The DVLA is the main authority that issues and regulates number plates (regular or personalised) and if you choose to buy from them, you cut out the middleman. They even have a great search tool that allows you to find combinations close to what you want.
They also hold auctions every few months where you can bid for the numbers you want. Auctions can be physical (where you have to be there in person or through a representative) or timed (online).With timed auctions, you submit the maximum amount you’re willing to pay and the system does the biding.
#2: Buy from a Broker
If the DVLA doesn’t have the plates you want, a broker is your go-to guy. These are usually companies, registered with the DVLA, and they play the middleman between request and demand. These companies buy the plates from people who want to sell, and then re-sell them to people like you.
Just like the DVLA, most brokers will allow you to search their database in order to find the combinations you want. Still, you should know that it will cost you a bit more than with the DVLA as the broker will sell the plates with their lot of profit too. But it’s worth the try as they own some of the most interesting combinations.
#3: Buy from the Owner
The third channel is represented by individual owners. This channel may provide the best plates, but it also requires the most work from you and it may be the most expensive. Still, if you can’t find what you want with the DVLA or the broker, it helps to keep an eye on the classified adverts. But, you should be prepared for high prices – owners usually know when they have a rare piece on their hands.
Once you’ve identified the combination you want, it’s time for the next step, which is the transaction per se. This means you will pay for the numbers and the right to use them will be transferred to you. If you went through the DVLA or a broker, you’ll receive all the information and guidance needed for the necessary documentation. However, if you go with the third channel, you will have to learn about the types of documents needed to make the transfer.
Luckily the process doesn’t involve too many documents and can be done online or via mail. Even better, you don’t even have to own a car in order to own the number plates! So, if you plan on buying a new car but you found the plates first, you can buy them without any problems.
The following list shows plates that have been sold in the past at the highest prices. Most of these were sold in auctions across the country although some were sold by the DVLA.
- ‘25’ O for £518,000.
This is the most expensive Regplates ever sold by the DVLA, and were purchased in 2014 by Ferrari dealer John Collins. The plate is currently being used on a Ferrari. The market value of the car is around £10,000,000.
- ‘F 1’ for £440,000.
This Regplate was the previous record holder for the highest price paid for a reg plate. The plate represents the initials of Formula 1 racing and was bought in 2008 by Afzal Khan, a businessman from Bradford. The plates are currently being used on his McLaren Mercedes SLR, which is quite an impressive match.
- ‘S 1’ for £404,000.
This is claimed to be the first Regplate that was ever made in Scotland. Therefore, it is both special and rare, as it is only one of its kind. The Regplates were purchased in 2008 at an auction by an anonymous bidder who said the plate would be used on an old Skoda. It’s a good investment, either to mark history or as an antique.
- ‘1 D’ for £352,000.
These initials bear a resemblance to the American pop group One Direction. However, it is interesting to note that the Regplate was purchased a year before the group was even formed. Nabil Bishara, a businessman from Lebanon, purchased it.
- ‘M 1’ for £331,000.
Mike McCoomb, a businessman in the phone industry, bought this unique Reg plate back in 2006. He said the plates were meant for his son, who was 10 years old at the time of the purchase.
