Number plates. A status symbol to glue onto your other status symbol and they rarely come better or more expensive or more bash that the unique Pagani Zonda you see photographed above. This part carbon part orange 2006 Zonda Roadster is worth less than $1Million but the numberplate attached to it is worth rather a lot more!
Saeed Khouri paid 14 million dollar for an Abu Dhabi license plate with the number 1, breaking the previous record held by his relative Talal Ali Mohammad Khouri, who paid up to 7 million dollars for the Abu Dhabi plates with number 5 and number 7. Bear in mind that the value of the plate enough to buy a Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari Enzo, Ferrari La Ferrari, McLaren P1, Porsche 918 and still have a couple of MILLION dollars left! We know which we would choose.
Money does not always buy taste…
