back to article Fancy a shattering ORG45M for £150k?

A UK number plate dealer is offering drivers the chance to enjoy an ORG 45M for a cool £150k, or get their hands on a hot PEN 15 for a mere £99,995. Regtransfers.co.uk currently has its PEN 15 screwed to some company wheels, as you can see here. A company spokesman said: "Whilst driving around with it on our company Smart car …

    Sun rejects "penis"

    Well of course, it's a serious word, many Sun 'readers' might not even know what it means, and the use of it would imply some education and ability to speak about the human body without sniggering.

    Now if it had been "C0 CK" or something they'd have snapped it up!

    Is the best number plate I have seen, and it's more subtle than PEN 15

    Didn't Derek Hattersley used to own PEN 15?

    What happened to him, anyway?

    Idiots & Money

    So, idiots with more money than brain cells want a label on their car to let the world know that they are an idiot with more money than brain cells who isn't getting any. Probably because they have the maturity of a sniggering 13 year old virgin.

    I'm sure this will be very useful for us grown-ups in giving these idiots a wide berth, but the IT angle is...?

    Who'd buy them

    What self respecting Clarkson-esque type would buy either of these plates , given that it demonstrates that an ORG45M is far more than a PEN15 ?

    Passed by PAR 1S this morning

    This plate is affixed to a black BMW 730i, it passed me this morning just to the north west of Cambridge near Madingley.

    The windows were darkened, I couldn't see what she was up to inside.

    Obvious the icon required!

    If you're that rich...

    If you're rich enough to buy 1 for $16m or whatever, why bother? Why not just put 1 on the car anyway & pay the fines for having an invalid numberplate. They could impound your Aston and crush it but who cares... even at $200,000 a pop you afford to get nicked 80 times before it costs the same!

    Forget a personalised plate...

    If you bought a car this year from Northampton, you could have a number plate that starts with KN08 for no extra cost.

    KN08 HED, anyone?

    @Posers with personalised number plates should...

    There's a similar one (or there used to be unless Gangsta Vehicle Leasing Inc has repo'd it) round here... I think it was P15 0EF with the plate screw partially covering the lower part of the E (or maybe the owner just got done for that... probably screws with ANPR or something)

    PEN 15

    Steve Parrish 'stole' the number plate from Linda Lovelace (of deepthroat fame) many years ago but eventually he had to buy it.

    BTW I know this as I grew up in the Village he was born and lived in.

    ORG 45M

    I'm sure I saw this at the supermarket one day, attached to a gold 4x4 of some description with large chrome wheels.

    My only thought was it was someone overcompensating for a deficiency elsewhere.

  26. yeah, right.

    how.... 1940's.

    So, when is the UK going to upgrade its systems and finally get rid of the whole "let's encode the year and location in the number plate" farce? Or even allow real "ego" plates rather than the joke they have now? It's just so... stupid.

    PEN 15

    I remember seeing PEN15 being sold (with vehicle) in the back pages of a magazine found amongst my dad's (not very well hidden) secret porn stash during the 70's.

    Paris because she's allegedly known more than 15 PENs.

    Numbers Only

    All licence plates here in the UAE are number based. The only letters indicate which Emirate you are in, and Dubai plates have letters which I "think" indicate the locality of the car. The lower the number here, the more important you are seen to be. Hence 1 being seen as the most important (until you get into the "VIP" plate area)

    Mind you, I've seen far too many Lexus LS400 with Abu Dhabi plates being driven by complete TW4 T5

    Of course

    I imagine that this is one story that the American readers won't get straight away, since in the States you can specify your own number plate providing it is unique, G rated and fits into your state's license plate format. It just costs more.

    A Florida plate A55 RGY

    The biggest hint being that (some) Florida plates have a nice big orange between the two parts.

    Even better, this is a standard series-issue plate, they didn't pay extra for it!

    Someone's committing a crime

    According to the DVLA computer PEN 15 is registered to a BLACK MCC SMART PULSE SOFTIP SEMI-AUTO not a yellow one as shown in the picture.

    And what a "softip" is I can only imagine.

    ORG 45M is currently unregistered which is a bit of a slur against BMW drivers!
