It was believed that the number “250 C” would appeal to owners of Ferrari’s 250 GT California Spyder supercar (above) and bidding would be fierce.

In the end, the successful bidder paid £21,500 for it at a DVLA auction in Nottingham. These are the licence plates that have managed to get drivers’ motors running over the years –and how much they were sold for.

1. 25 O - £518,000 (November 2014)

2. 1D - £352,000 (March 2009)

3. 51 NGH - £254,000 (April 2006)

4. 1 RH - £247,000 (November 2008)

5. K1 NGS - £185,000 (December 1993)
