Personalised plate sells for £10,690
29 September 2008

The personalised registration plate ‘THE 57IG’ has sold for a massive £10,690 at a DVLA auction.

Rick Fusari paid more than 26 times the £400 reserve for the plate, which attracted the interest of more than a dozen bidders thanks to its link to Top Gear’s famous racing driver.

All that’s left for Fusari to do is decide which of his Ferraris to put the plate on, and buy a white helmet.

Why oh why? I am a fan of Top Gear (just watched the locally made aussie version-not that bad) but this is just a step to far. Surely this is asking for trouble being on any car?

Isn't anybody allowed a sense of humour any more?

Surely the number plate is illegally spaced and the G must be apart from the numbers. As soon as a police car camera spots it, it will flag it and they will recieve 3 penalty points.
