£1 million numberplate goes on sale
Let's hope they get it centred up a bit better
The X1 plate is being advertised for sale by Regtransfers, and McLaren may have the ideal customer for it - the owner of the one-off X-1. Given the car’s rumoured price tag of ‘well into seven figures’, they could probably afford it, too.
Northumberland City Council first issued the X1 registration in 1903 to, it seems, one of the UK’s first PHers, a doughty chap who was given the plate in recognition of his efforts in overturning the ‘red flag’ Locomotive Act legislation and removing the UK’s paltry 4mph speed limit. He was part of a committee based in Tynemouth, other members of which were given the successive plates X2-X5. Was it foresightedness that saw them leave out X6?
st businessman if he turned down an offer that allowed him a £4.5million profit on something he had bought.
Wouldnt A1 be worth more? Nope I dont see it....
or K1 NG5 (sultan of brueni)
As for £1 million for X1, dream on. Typical of asking prices on Regtransfers, which are beyond optimistic most of the time. The story about turning down £5m for F1 is fantasy too.
