PRICEY HSV PLATES

Motor (Australia) - - THE NEWS -

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.
