Another new number plate series – X marks the spot

It’s fast becoming like alphabet soup, if it hasn’t already. Hot on the heels of the XX special number plate series is er, the X special number plate series. And why not? The double-letter UU and YY series already have their U and Y precursors, so XX now gets X.

No background details on this one, but you can expect that it’ll be tied to some organisation or foundation. What we do know is that the series will run from X 1 to X 9999 and that the end date for bidding is on April 23, with results of successful bids being announced on May 7.

For this one, the tender reserve price is RM50,000 for single-digit numbers, while that for a two-digit number is RM10,000. As for three-digit numbers, the minimum bid is RM3,000, while prices start from RM1,000 for four-digit numbers. Demand should be high for the X1 to X6 plates, for obvious reasons.

The X series follows on the aforementioned XX series that reported about just yesterday. Other special number plate series that have come about include GTR, GG, SAM, K1M, T1M, A1M, US, SMS, NBOS, NAAM, VIP, G, GT, U, Y, PERFECT and PATRIOT. I think it’s safe to say we can expect XXX to appear at some point.
