Dubai Roads and Transport Authority’s (RTA) 98th open auction for eighty exclusive licence plates bearing two to five digits of different codes became a huge success on Saturday when number plates worth Dh19.98 million went on sale. The Dubai licence plate bearing W22 fetched a whopping Dh2.62 million after several minutes of intense bidding even though it’s base price was Dh1.7 million.
Apart from W22, several other unique number plates that got sold in a flash included T88888, which brought in Dh710,000; T160 fetched Dh256,000, and S6060 was sold for Dh94,000. For many of the bidders, ownership of special numbers is a matter of great pride and are more than happy to pay as much as necessary for the unique treasures.
