THE most expensive licence plates ever sold have been revealed. And one private collector spent more than £500,000 for a highly sought-after registration. A recent breakdown by the DVLA revealed the 25 O licence plate was sold for a whopping £400,000 at auction in 2014, with classic car dealer John Collins forking out £518,000 after fees and VAT. The classic plate received immense interest when it went under the hammer as it can be attached to some of the most valuable cars. And it's now attached to a £10million Ferrari 250GT SWB, which was previously by legendary guitarist Eric Clapton.

The first thing you notice - after those dashing lines with distant echoes of how cars were sometimes styled in the 1940s - is how low it is when you climb in. It really is ground-hugging, and the seats feel as though they sit low in the car too. It makes it crucial that you remember when the end of the kerb is when you reverse into a parking slot, because you won’t see it from behind the steering wheel on the way out again - and those 19-inch AMG alloys look very expensive indeed. Switch on the engine and the hush is deafening; it’s hard to be sure … [Read more...] about We road test the Mercedes CLS
