#3 – Talal Khouri’s ‘5’ – $6.8 million
Talal Ali Mohammad Khouri jumped right back on the list after purchasing the ‘5’ number plate for an impressive $6.8 million. He plans on keeping the number plate until he passes away, at which point the plate will head back to auction and all of the proceeds will go to charity. What car did it go on? A red Rolls Royce.
#2 – Saeed Abdul Ghafour Khouri, ‘1’ – $14.3 million
Businessman, Saeed Abdul Ghafour Khouri, spent a whopping $14.3 million on what is possibly one of the most basic number plates in the world, but one that also makes the biggest statement. The lone ‘1’ was sold at the Emirates auction and is only expected to go up in value.
#1 – Afzal Kahn’s ‘F1’ – Price: Unkown
Back in 2008, Afzal Kahn of A Kahn Design purchased the ‘F1’ number plate for a “mere” £440,000 (+/- $716,980). Since then, the value for the iconic number plate has skyrocketed. In 2012, he turned down an offer over $8.14 million, and then in the summer of 2013, he turned down another offer of $9.3 million, and he isn’t looking to sell it anytime soon, unless there is an absolutely incredible offer. You can see the number plate on his Bugatti Veyron at the flagship Kahn showroom in Leeds.
