Famous "F1" License Plate Not for Sale, Kahn Says

British aftermarket developer Afzal Kahn denies that his famous F1 license plate, the one registered in the UK more than a century ago, for which he paid £440,000 ($740,000), has been for sale. In fact, the announcement is no longer on the market, as Reg Transfers, the company selling personal number plates, removed it from its page.

We recently wrote about the fact the owner of A Kahn Design “automotive fashion house,” Afzal Kahn, put his ‘F1’ license plate on sale for the crazy $17 million (£10 million) price. It was allegedly the price the owner of the famous collectable was asking on Regtransfers, a registration specialist company based in UK.

However, we spoke to Kahn, who explained that the plate was never on sale and that he also asked the guys working at the aforementioned website to remove the page, which they did on Friday.

On sale or not, like we said the last time we wrote about the license plate, there is a pretty interesting story about this one. Even though it’s not exactly clear what was the car that wore the number the first time, you might find it amusing to know that the plate was on a Volvo S80 sedan back in 2008, when the plate was owned by the chairman of the Essex County Council.
