Jersey Private Personalised Number Plates
The numbers up for sale include J001 as well as a number of sequential plates such as J9545 and J9546, JSY63 and JSY64, and JSY141, JSY142 and JSY143. Some six-digit plates will also be auctioned, including J311111.
Infrastructure Minister Eddie Noel said: ‘J001 is a very desirable number to have on your car and I think it will bring quite a few bidders willing to pay a premium price at our annual auction. It will raise much-needed funds for my department, as will the other 49 memorable numbers.’
As well as selling plates at their annual auctions, DVS also has an online list – available at the DVS office – where five- and six-digit registration numbers can be bought for £250.
Income from the auctions and sales goes towards essential DVS equipment and other transport-related items.
The event is due to take place in the Great Hall at Highlands College at 10.30 am, with doors due to open at 9 am.
How much did you pay for your last car? Actually, how much did you pay for your last house, if you've ever bought one? Now that you have those figures in mind, think that someone out there sooner rather than later will spend $20 million on a car's license plate. Yes, a license plate. And no, it's not made out of gold.
Afzhal Khan is the man behind this outlandish online sales ad for his personal vanity plate he currently has affixed to his Bugatti Veyron. The Euro-style license plate only features two characters on its elongated yellow body, which read "F1," as in "Formula 1." Kahn originally bought the plate in 2018 for the eye-watering amount of approximately $619,000 according to Carscoops, but it's not clear if he did it because he's a massive Formula 1 fan, for investment reasons, or simply to be a top-notch show-off.
Unlike in the United States, citizens of the United Kingdom own their license plates and their contents, which means that if you're able to secure a saucy message on it, it's yours to keep and resell as long as you pay the one-time and yearly fees. The price of the plate itself is "only" $16,96,918 or so, but after transfer fees and a whopping 20 percent tax-equivalent surcharge, the total price of admission for the plate's future owner blows up to little over $20 million dollars.
When, not if, the "F1" plate sells, it will most likely be the most expensive license plate ever sold in the world. Back in 2008, United Arab Emirates businessman Saeed Abdul Ghafour Khouri paid the then equivalent to $14.3 million for a local license plate that simply had the number "1" on it. The license plate and many of its authorized copies were installed to his fleet supercars which included several Pagani, Bugatti, and Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
It’s fast becoming like alphabet soup, if it hasn’t already. Hot on the heels of the XX special number plate series is er, the X special number plate series. And why not? The double-letter UU and YY series already have their U and Y precursors, so XX now gets X.
No background details on this one, but you can expect that it’ll be tied to some organisation or foundation. What we do know is that the series will run from X 1 to X 9999 and that the end date for bidding is on April 23, with results of successful bids being announced on May 7.
For this one, the tender reserve price is RM50,000 for single-digit numbers, while that for a two-digit number is RM10,000. As for three-digit numbers, the minimum bid is RM3,000, while prices start from RM1,000 for four-digit numbers. Demand should be high for the X1 to X6 plates, for obvious reasons.
The X series follows on the aforementioned XX series that reported about just yesterday. Other special number plate series that have come about include GTR, GG, SAM, K1M, T1M, A1M, US, SMS, NBOS, NAAM, VIP, G, GT, U, Y, PERFECT and PATRIOT. I think it’s safe to say we can expect XXX to appear at some point.
We spotted Kareena Kapoor Khan recently just outside the Gym she frequents. The otherwise booylicious yummy mummy always grabs our attention with her super fit bod. But this time around, she surprised us with her swanky toy! Yes, when Bebo stepped out of her spotless white Audi Q7 with the other Bollywood star Amrita Arora, she waved at us happily. But we decided to overlook her sweet gesture as our eyes were fixated on the unique car plate number of hers!
Yes, isn't that car plate really unique? 7070. When we probed deep into the possible significance of this really remarkable car plate, this is what our research threw at us. A renowned astrologer and numerologist from the city had this to say about the number 7070. " Number 7 appearing twice in the same digit is a significant placement indeed. The energy vibrations of the number 7 has been chronicled for years in various research and rituals."
When coupled with the colour white, we are informed, this number creates strength of spirituality "It has to do with inner-wisdom, individuality and endurance, spiritual awakening and enlightenment. When separated by the digit Zero the recurrence of number 7 reflects psychic abilities. It surely creates the magical aura and it is the number of the mystic and the spiritual realms." she concluded.
How close a series of letters or numbers are to a real name of word: if the match quality is high (and the numbers and letters are very convincing in making a popular word), the value of the registration plate will be higher. This means that a match like 5IMON, for the name Simon, will be worth a lot more than a more obscure set of letters and numbers that are not as convincing a match, such as S17 MMM for the name Sam.
The style of the plate: this means establishing if it is a new-style plate, an older-style format or if it is dateless or Irish, for instance. Other options are that it is a prefix-style plate or a suffix-style plate. New-style number plates, which have been produced since 2001, tend to be the least valuable because they are a bit less appealing to some collectors, plus the rule about not having plates that are newer than your car can also come into play, putting people off from buying a newer-style plate for their older car. Prefix-style number plates, which were in production between 1983 and 2001 can be more popular as more vehicles are entitled to have those licence numbers, and they may have fewer characters in total. Suffix-style plates, issued from 1963 to 1983 are relatively rare, which means they can attract higher prices than prefix-style plates and newer designs. Dateless number plates, also known as cherished number plates, were produced between 1903 and 1963 and are nearly always the most valuable number plate configurations; they have fewer digits and their dateless nature means that people can hide the age of their car. Irish number plates are similar to dateless number plates, especially because they don’t have a year identifier. They also tend to be cheaper than other types of vehicle registration plates.
