Royal Themed Number Plate 500,000 Reg
LOVE IS in the air for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle but could some of it rub off on wealthy drivers who might fancy pairing up with a royal-themed private number plate?
Fitted to a bespoke British 4×4 built to celebrate the royal wedding, ‘4 HRH’ is being advertised for £269,999 but its owner hopes that the growing hysteria around Harry and Meghan could see it sell for a record-breaking sum of more than £500,000.
Custom car kings, Kahn Design, have created a special edition Chelsea Truck Company Flying Huntsman version of the Land Rover Defender.
The four-seat, four-wheel drive Flying Huntsman features a regal-red, leather-lined interior and is available to buy separately from the number plate, for £79,999.
Company founder, Afzal Kahn, 44, said: “As a proud Englishman, this is our way of wishing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle many happy years together.”
The most paid for a private registration in Britain was more than half a million pounds, after John Collins, a dealer of classic Ferraris, bought ’25 0′ to fit to a rare, £10m Ferrari 250 GT SWB, in 2014.
How popular any name or initial it contains is: You are more likely to get good money for a registration plate that spells out a name like 5UE than you are with a more unusual name, simply because there is more demand for Sue (or Dave or Mel) than there would be for Hector, Primrose or Zebedee
How valuable the letters and numbers the plate contains are: in terms of numbers, lower numbers with fewer digits tend to be the most valuable when reselling personalised number plates, making BOB 1 more valuable than BOB 379. Sequential numbers (123, 456 etc.) and repeated numbers (444, 88) are more popular than random combinations, and special occasion numbers like 18 and 21 can also boost a number plate’s value a little. In terms of the letters in a number plate, the likelihood of a series of letters being a name or a person’s initials increases the value of the plate, too.
