This businessman could have bought a Ferrari a Lamborghini and a Porsche for what he just paid for a car license plate! 

Arif Ahmed al-Zarouni paid a mind-boggling AED18m (£3.4m) for the car registration plate which simply reads number '1'. His explanation? “My ambition is always to be number one.”

Car fans will know that many registration plates do not come cheap and this wasn't even the most anyone has ever paid for one! That esteemed title goes to the number one plate of the richest of the UAE’s seven emirates, Abu Dhabi which managed a cool AED52.2m at auction.
