Afzal Kahn has built up a highly profitable private plate collection over the years.

His most valuable registration is without a doubt, the much sought after F1 number plate, which currently sits on the front of his Bugatti Veyron supercar.

The F1 plate was stuck on a mundane Volvo S80 before Mr. Kahn purchased the number plate from Essex County Council for a cool £460000.

Tellingly, the registration has proven to be a fantastic investment with the plate’s value increasing significantly.

Afzal Kahn’s rebuttal to many a potential buyer ensures that only a sensible offer may entice the designer and businessman into parting with his prized possession.


If you get the right number and letter combination (the shorter the better), the private plate market can be highly profitable. Much of it is now in the hands of the DVLA themselves, holding at least 20million private plates.

If you are looking for a private registration, look no further.
