‘SAM’ and ‘K1M’ are new special number plate series

More new special number plates have come about, with the likes of ‘SAM’ and ‘K1M’ joining the ever-growing list of unique plates that includes T1M, A1M, US, SMS, NBOS, NAAM, VIP, G, GT, U, Y, PERFECT and PATRIOT.

The SAM series plate, which runs from SAM 1 to SAM 9999, derives its plate moniker from the Federation of Superbikers Association Malaysia as well as the slogan Saya Anak Malaysia. Bids opened on December 14 last year and closed on December 30, with results of successful bids set to be revealed on January 10.

According to the website, the minimum bidding price for a basic four-digit SAM plate is RM360, moving up to RM35,050 for a platinum single-digit number. As is usually the case, even though the bidding period has ended, interesed parties are likely to be able to buy SAM plates from a few number plate brokers.

The K1M plate, meanwhile, is the shortened form of Kembara 1Malaysia, and the series has a smaller run, working from K1M 1 to K1M 100. The series has been released by Yayasan Wangsa Perdana, with a company called D’City Planners managing all related activities for the special plate series.

Also spotted is a plate series called GTR, though there’s very little info about that one – it’s not known if the new one is a variation of the GT series that was offered by Kelab Eksplorasi 7 Benua Malaysia (KE7B) back in 2016.
