Plate sells for more than a Porsche

An anonymous bidder is shelling out CHF 194,000 for a licence plate that reads ZH 888.

The low number plate was being auctioned off by canton Zurich. 

For that amount, the buyer could have had a brand-new Porsche – with a normal number plate. 

It’s the second highest amount ever paid for a licence plate – the most expensive was one from Zug, ZG 10 – that sold for CHF 233,000 in 2018.

All the money raised goes to the canton’s coffers.
