1 SVR number plate

SOME interesting registration numbers are coming up for sale, especially for owners of Jaguar Land Rover's range-topping Special Vehicle Racing models.

DVLA Personalised Registrations will be auctioning 1 SVR a short distance from the iconic manufacturers' Warwickshire home with the second three day auction of the year being held at the Stratford Manor Hotel near Stratford-upon-Avon.

The registration - which is also suitable to anyone sporting the initials SVR - is among 1,250 on offer to suit all tastes and budgets during the three days commencing on May 16.

With 1 SVR, with a reserve £2,400 likely to be of interest to Jaguar or Range Rover SVR owners - where new models range from £100,000 each - there's a raft of lots suited to supercars like LAM 80B (£300) for Lamborghini drivers, 991 GTS (£1,200) for Porsche drivers and A488 GTO (£250) for owners of the special Ferrari model.

For those looking for a specific ‘name' related registration, there's RO18 ERT (£400), ELL107G (£250), DOR 15E (£400) and F41 THE (£250).

For tradesmen there's VO17 AGE (£400) that is clearly ideal for an electrician and 1 LGV (£2,400) for haulage drivers and for fans of a certain football team bearing the United-tag, the DVLA is auctioning UN17 TED (£400).

Those looking for the quirky, fun-related, registrations there are many such as OW11 ZAT (£400), for the keen cricketer or BAR 31E (£300) for fans of a certain cult toy doll.

Jody Davies, DVLA Personalised Registrations' senior sales manager, said: "Our single one digit three-letter registrations always prove hugely popular but, there's no denying, 1 SVR will have an added draw caused by Jaguar Land Rovers' Special Vehicle Racing models. Putting its value into context, in 2016 we auctioned 1 SUV which attracted bids from Sports Utility Vehicle owners for £46,200.

"While 1 SVR will undoubtedly be a star lot, as ever we have worked tirelessly to ensure there are personalised registrations available to suit all tastes and budgets. Our first live auction of 2018 held in February proved another huge success, I am confident this one will be equally popular."
