A mystery buyer swooped and bought the clearly coveted registration 5 O for a staggering Â£87,853.75 at a DVLA Personalised Registrationsâ€™ auction last week.
The sum takes the total amount spent on the O-series â€“ 1 O, 2 O, 3 O and 4 O â€“ released to mark DVLA Personalised Registrationsâ€™ 20th anniversary, to a whopping Â£566,344.
Damian Lawson, DVLA Personalised Registrationsâ€™ marketing manager, said: â€œAgain, we have been blown away by the level of interest in an O-registration. The decision to release them to the public has certainly proved worthwhile in terms of the revenue raised for the nation.â€
The 6 O registration will be open to bidders at the DVLA’s final three-day auction for 2009 opening on December 2 at Tankersley Manor Hotel in Barnsley, Yorkshire.
