MALACCA: Five Malaysians are in the running to own the number plate Patriot 1, with the auction price starting at RM1 million, the most expensive vehicle registration number in the country.
Each has made a 20% deposit and the successful owner will be made known by June 30, The Star Online reported.
The Road Transport Department (JPJ) has granted permission to Yayasan Patriot Negara Malaysia (YPN) to auction the numbers Patriot 1 to Patriot 9999 as part of the non-governmental organisation’s fund-raising drive to promote moderation.
YPN’s special project director Mass Ayu Mass Akbar said the minimum bidding price for the premier category with plates Patriot 1 to Patriot 10 ranged from RM380,000 to RM1mil and so far the response was overwhelming.
YPN was set up on April 12, 2013, to initiate programmes to promote racial unity, religious tolerance and patriotism among Malaysians.
The NGO is led by government retirees and those from the private sector with the aim of encouraging a harmonious nation.
She said interested bidders should register online at plat.patriot.ory.my and deposit 20% of their bidding price.
Those unsuccessful will have their deposits fully refunded.
