Supply and demand I guess.  Here in NA you pretty much have to pay someone to take it off your hands :'(

Never mind the price of the 6.9, did you see how much a 2 figure historic number plate attracts  :o

Yep, despite the ongoing 'financial crisis'.  ::)

Like Dad would say 'i tell ya boy, you can clearly see the contempt God has for money simply by looking at the people he gives it all to'!

The fact someone would be thinking 'uuuummmm, a piece of tin painted black with two numbers painted in white; or most of the cars for sale at this auction.....' Good grief  :-X

Yes, it's absolute nonsense, the whole exclusive plate thing. Just the thing to put on your equally as crass Lamborghini, hahaha.

yeahhhhhhh..I'm watching this with great interest.  I'd rate mine about the same as this example........I am reliably informed there are a couple of other 6.9's for sale in Aus asking more.
This auction should estab a realistic value.
