PRICEY HSV PLATES
HSV’s vaunted GTSR W1 has sent the number plate market into a frenzy, with some offers asking as much as six figures. Adding to the disbelief are the dubious configurations, a plate reading ‘ASGTSR8’ advertised on eBay is wanting for almost two thirds of the car’s listed $169,900 price at $100K. Meanwhile ‘GT5RWI’ – notice that two characters swap either letters for numbers or viceversa – bravely asks for $22,000. Some ads didn’t even provide photo evidence of the plates, but only snaps of the confirmation letter. Be wary of that.
