KUALA LUMPUR: The WWW car registration series has created a new high, with WWW 1 going for RM520,000.
Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha said the total amount of bids stood at RM64,225,838.51.
“Revenue from successful bidders is anticipated at RM11.3 million, which is 10 times more than the usual collection in the previous series,” he said in a statement.
The highest bid previously was for MCA 1, which was sold for RM300,100.
A total of 18,243 bids were received from April 30 to May 14.
Kong said the WWW series had set a record of sorts as there were 13 successful bids of more than RM100,000, including three, which were more than RM300,000.
The WWW 333 plate was the most popular, with 84 bidders, he said.
Kong also said 4,908 numbers in the series had been taken up while the rest would become running numbers.
He added that the final results would be uploaded onto the Road Transport Department portal at www.jpj.gov.my on Monday.
He also said successful bidders would be notified from June 6.
WWW registrations will commence on June 15.
