The recent number plate auction proved to be a great success for the DVLA who bagged lb4.7 million from the proceedings.
“Once again we have been left stunned by the tremendous level of interest in our sale”, said Jody Davies, personalised registrations events manager for the DVLA.
The auction had a distinctively British feel themed on the big patriotic events of the summer, including the Jubilee, the Euros and the Olympics.
The big winners were EN61 AND and HO11 AND, which sold for lb12,000 and lb20,100 respectively.
Olympian Iwan Thomas took bids for REL 44Y and RUN 3R, which fetched lb2,400 between them.
Two royal number plates, PR11 NCE HA12 RRY, where bought for a total of lb21,700.
Other podium-finishers included 80 O (lb35,000), OL11 VER (lb30,000), PO12 TER (lb17,000), 4 HFS (lb15,000), BA11 LEY (lb14,700), and 851 NGH (lb12,000).
“Linking up with the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games has been a real success” continued Jody Davies, “we are really pleased that so many people were able to find their perfect personalised registration.”
