“NSW ’38’ on a Bentley Bentayga. Thanks to CLR media for this brilliant 2-digit plate, plus the first Bentayga to be sent in. The plate had previously been spotted on a Bentley Continental GT. I wonder if the owner ticked the option boxes for the $300k Breitling dash clock or $55k picnic hamper…?”
“Vic ‘4’ on a Maserati GranTurismo. Thanks to Philip K & Seshin for this one. The plate has been posted a few times before, but this is the clearest shot we’ve had of it.”
“Vic ‘669’ on a Ford Mustang. Thanks to Ben for this plate, which had previously been spotted on a Ford Ranger. I love that a hand crafted enamel heritage plate looks just at home on some American muscle as it does on Europe’s finest.”
“Vic ’21’ on a Mercedes SLS. Big thanks to Leigh for being the first to send in a shot of this plate on its new home, after it was sold for $530,000 at auction just a few weeks ago. It’s a shame to see it leave its family ownership after such a long period of time, but great to see it back in use on a very fitting car so soon. Congratulations to the new owner.”
“Qld ‘356’ on a Porsche 356. Thanks to James for this gorgeous matching car and plate. It has been posted before, but it’s definitely worthy of another look.”
“Vic ’11’ on a Rolls Royce Wraith. Thanks to anonymous for what would have to be the one of the best 2 digit plates in Australia. On a very fitting vehicle too.”
“Vic ‘6111’ on a Lamborghini Huracan. Thanks to anon for this plate, which sold for $45,000 at auction earlier this year.”
“Qld 11, 12 & 13 on a Rolls Royce Wraith, Mercedes SL500 and Bentley Bentayga. Big thanks to anonymous for this amazing set of plates and cars! The owner is well known amongst Qld plate owners, and each of these plates have been spotted on a range of different cars – almost always white. Very nice.”
“VIC ’35’, ‘278’, ‘279’, ‘304’ & ‘3666’ on a Mercedes AMG S63 coupe, Mercedes A250, Toyota FJ Cruiser, Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. Phew… Thanks to Christian for this nice collection, which has thoughtfully been photographed in numeric order for those of us who care about that sort of thing.”
What else could have been number 1…
“Vic ‘1’ on a Mercedes AMG E63. I received plenty of photos of this plate over the grand prix weekend, but chose this one mainly because it was the only photo not taken at Crown. Big thanks to Jordan for the photo. More info on the plate can be found here.”
Thank you to everyone who submitted photos to the page in 2016. Bring on 2017!
