Malaysia’s The Most Expensive License Plate

9,998 bidders for Malaysia WWW 1 license plate and the winner was Ibrahim Ismail of Johor with $165,068 (520,000 Malaysian ringgits) winning bid.

Why this crazy auction? Because in Malaysia you cannot buy personalized plate for your car, you must wait until the number of cars registered reached that sequence and this can take months or even years.
