The recent ‘RR’ number plate series has unseated ‘RM’ as the most lucrative for JPJ Perlis. ‘RR’ – which is overflowing with sporty connotations and will look good on superbikes and luxury cars – netted the state’s Road Transport Department RM7.2 million, RM100k more than the RM7.1 million collected by the ‘RM’ money plate.

This was revealed by JPJ Perlis spokesman Mohd Tarmizi Ghazali to various media outlets, which reported that the department received 7,960 bids for registration numbers. The bids for top ‘RR’ numbers comfortably topped the previous Perlis record bid for a number plate – RM297,000 for ‘RM8’ in 2015.

Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V is the successful bidder for ‘RR6’ and ‘RR9’, which cost the monarch RM459,000 dan RM396,800 respectively. Selangor’s Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah bagged ‘RR11’ for RM268,400. Check out the eye-watering sums coughed up for the top ‘RR’ plates below. But where’s ‘RR1’?
