In previous years, Indian businessman Balwinder Sahni, based in Dubai, paid a whopping Dh33 million (that’s over £6.9 million GBP!!) to get his hands on the Dubai plate D5! This is currently believed to be the most expensive number plate ever purchased in the UAE.
In the UK, 1 D sold for £285,000 on the hammer in 2009. The boyband One Direction (aka 1 D) was formed in 2010 and became a global success, so we can only imagine what offers the owner may have received since then. CARREG.co.uk have D 3 listed at £1,000,000 and also 3 D listed at £1,100,000.
