The Naijauto team was thrilled to discover this fascinating report of one retired businessman who has just bought himself an expensive ₦127million (£287,792) personalized plate number “IG 1” in Vale of Glamorgan at a DVLA auction.

The name of this man who just bought the “IG 1” is “Ian Guest”.

When “Guest” was speaking about why he spent this huge amount of money on a personalized plate number meant to be fitted on his 2019 Bentley Continental GT Speed which has a starting price of ₦83million already, he said;

“It was incredible,”

“When the price went to £100,000 everything really became a haze.

“My wife Pamela expected me to pay between £240,000 and £260,000 but I never thought it would go so high.”

The actual price of this special plate number is ₦97million (£220,000) but the various VAT and premiums caused the price to reach ₦127million (£287,792).
