A record price has been set for a British vehicle registration number after a businessman paid 440,625 to buy the Formula One initials F1.

Afzal Khan, 37, smashed the previous record of 331,000, paid 18 months ago for M1, to purchase the historic F1 number plate from Essex County Council.

The Bradford entrepreneur, who owns a specialist car design company, plans to display the number plate on his 317,000 Mercedes SLR McLaren supercar.

F1 was the first number plate issued by the Essex County Register of Motors in 1904, the year it became compulsory for motor vehicles to bear a registration plate.

knob end.

personal reg plates are not for me, only mugs buy a plate which tells people what car u drive or what ur name is! its obvious what car u drive as the manufacturers put badges on the boot,and if someone wants to know ur name theyll ask u. As for "F1" on a mclaren SLR,im baffled. On a Mc F1 3 seater beast maybe (read above point though)
