Dubai license plate auction sees values of Dhs500,000 upwards
This Saturday afternoon the RTA is holding a ‘distinctive number plates’ auction at the Intercontinental Dubai Festival City (the 88th auction of its kind).
Those keen to get their hands on a fancy plate need to register first on the RTA website, and then between 2pm-4pm they’ll get to bid on their favourite digits.
So just how much does a distinctive plate go for these days?
Well, interestingly, the RTA has released valuations for the plates going up for auction this weekend – and the two most expensive plates ‘Q 29’ and ‘P 34’ are considered to be worth an impressive Dhs500,000.
‘Q 808’ will set you back around Dhs240,000, while ‘Q 4444’ is valued at around Dhs220,000. But, as is the way with an auction, it will all depend on who’s there on the day – if there are two people called Quincy there whose birthdays are on the 8th August then ‘Q 808’ could shoot right up.
THE VALUATIONS PART ONE:
Meanwhile, the timely ‘P 2015’ is valued at just Dhs2,000 (although, to be fair, that plate will be less cool from January 1 2016).
