Indian businessman pays US$9m for Dubai number plate
An Indian businessman has paid US$9 million at auction to grab a single-digit car registration plate in Dubai, feeding a passion for “unique” number plates. Balwinder Sahani, who owns a Dubai-based property management company, spent AED 33 million on the “D5” number plate, in an auction organised by the road authority. “I have collected 10 number plates so far. It’s a passion. This number will go to one of my Rolls-Royces,” he said.
