It was auctioned for charity in the United Arab Emirates, beating the previous record of 3.5m for a plate featuring the number 5.

The successful bidder said he bought it because he "wants to be the best in the world".

Saeed Khouri, a member of a wealthy Abu Dhabi family, added: "I bought it because it's the best number."

However, he would not say which of his many cars would carry the record-breaking single-digit plate.

The oil-rich UAE began auctioning off so-called vanity licence plates last May.

Proceeds from the auctions go to a rehabilitation centre for victims of traffic accidents.

On Saturday, 90 licence plates were auctioned off, raising a total of 12m.

The previous five such events raised more than 25m.
