There are eccentrics for everything and Balwinder Sahani is one of them. This Indian businessman, residing in Dubai, bought a number plate at an auction for nothing less than 33 million dirhams, something like 7 million pounds.
“I love collecting unique registration plates and I am proud of what I have achieved.” Balwinder said that was willing to buy it even if the bid would have came up to 50 or even 100 million dirhams.
This plate is unique because it only has inscribed the number 5 and it was intended for one of the Rolls Royce of the owner of an international real estate company.
Balwinder Sahani is also the owner of the plate 9, bought in 2015 for 25 million dirhams, something like 5.5 million pounds.
The Dubai Transport Authority organizes regular auctions of number plates which attracts avid advertising millionaires.
