At the latest auction, the DVLA plans to sell Formula One and Lewis Hamilton number plates starting at £350.
The DVLA has confirmed that a number of one-of-a-kind Formula One and Lewis Hamilton-themed number plates will be auctioned off next week.
The designs will honor four legendary Formula One teams, and they may be a great gift for fans or owners of sports cars. McLaren, Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, and Aston Martin will all have designs in the collection.
Fans of Lewis Hamilton may get their hands on a limited-edition design honoring his world-championship-winning team.
With a starting price of £500, “AMF 1F” pays homage to Mercedes but is also the most expensive in the collection.
Along with the slew of registrations, there’s “MCL 35M,” which is sure to be a hit with British fans.
The plate will cost £350 and honors British driver Lando Norris and Australian Daniel Ricciardo’s model number and racing machine.
The “AMR 21F,” which commemorates Aston Martin’s return to the series this year, is also available to British racing enthusiasts.
The car could also be purchased by fans of historic racing to commemorate the team’s prior participation in Formula One between 1959 and 1960.
The green vehicles driven by Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby lasted two seasons in Formula One before being retired.
The “SF21 FER” model is designed to reflect Ferrari’s most recent chassis design.
Fans of the Prancing Horse or their drivers, Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz, may find the plate appealing.
F1-themed plates, according to Jody Davies, Senior Sales Manager at DVLA Personalised Registrations, “always prove popular” with clients.
Consumers are expected to “love” the new sale, according to the DVLA.
“Formula One, as well as everything related to the sport, such as race cars, teams, and drivers, is always a hit with our customers,” she stated.
“I’m confident that the customised registrations included in this current sale will be a hit.
“However, they are just a few of 1,000 items being auctioned, all of which have been hand-picked to fit a wide range of interests and budgets.”
Along with the F1 plates, the DVLA will sell 1,000 customised registrations on June 23.
The DVLA’s seven-day auction is the first to include the new 71 series car ahead of its September introduction.
“OP71 CAL,” “PA71 SON,” and “SA71 SFY” are some of the new designs.
The starting price for all new designs has been set at £400.
Vehicle-specific plates, such as “Brinkwire Summary News,” are also available.
