DDD 2 plate goes to Agong for RM385,000 – report

The DDD 2 Kelantan number plate has been purchased by none other than the Yang di-Pertuan Agong himself, Sultan Muhammad V, according to The Sun. The king, who is also the Sultan of Kelantan, put in the winning bid of RM385,000 for the registration number, and also won several other notable DDD numbers, said the state’s Road Transport Department (JPJ) director Mahassan Mustapha.

“The state JPJ received overwhelming response from the public and created history with this series of registration number plates with more than 7,000 bids for the DDD number plates,” he said. “In the previous series, the state RTD only recorded between 700 and 800 bids from individuals.”

Mahassan noted that a number of VIPs have also snatched them up, with the number DDD 1000 being the most popular, attracting 144 bids – it cost the winning individual RM50,000.

The news is just the latest in a slew of high-profile bids for exclusive registration numbers. Soon after Kuala Lumpur switched to a numbering system featuring a suffix letter, the W1N plate made headlines with a winning bid of RM748,000 put down by an unknown individual.

The Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar, then swooped in to purchase F1 for RM836,660 and V1 for a handsome sum of RM990,000 when Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya moved to the V and F series respectively. But it was the number plate PATRIOT 1 that claimed the record for the Malaysia’s most expensive reg number, when a bidder from the south of the country paid a whopping RM1.3 million for it.

    What? 1.3 mil for a number plate. I can only afford 6 bucks for a Koay teow plate, with extra kerang.

    In Abu Dhabi, the no plate bidding reaches Dh52million, but all the money from the bid goes to charity, I wonder where does the money goes here in Msia
