Dubai - Emirates Auction has set a new world record for selling the world's most expensive number plate at the "Most Noble Numbers" charity auction for special vehicle plates.

Plate number P7 was sold for a whopping $15 million, making it the most expensive number plate in the world.  The number was sold at the Most Noble Number charity auction, which was held on Saturday April 8, 2023.
