 Motor-Savvy British Asians Dole Out Fortunes for Personalised Number Plates
Motor-savvy British Asians have topped the list of drivers who dole out fortunes for personalised number plates.

The list reflected that in the past year, people have spent tens of thousands of pounds to get ethnic-themed registrations

And the most costly number plate, 51 NGH (Singh), which fetched 254,000 pounds, went at auction to a mystery buyer.

There were other Asians who paid huge sums to the DVLA, which include-18,000 pounds for AHM 5D (Ahmed), 51,500 pounds for 1 RAN (Iran), 20,500 pounds for SYR 1A (Syria), 16,500 pounds for 81 ACK (Black) and 27,200 pounds for WEL 5H (Welsh).

Figures revealed that plate sales fetched 87million pounds for the Treasury last year.

"This array of cherished plates reflects Britain's changing face," British tabloid The Sun quoted Lib Dem transport spokesman Norman Baker as saying.
