Already at over 380,000 francs
“ZH 100” breaks record price even before the end of the auction
The lowest license plate in the canton of Zurich is a tall order: as far as the selling price is concerned, the “ZH 100” already eclipses all records. The auction is still in progress.
Mario Fehr, Head of the Security Department of the Canton of Zurich, presents the object of desire.
The road traffic office of the canton of Zurich is auctioning “ZH 100” – the license plate with the lowest number in the canton to date. The auction still lasts four days. But one thing is already clear: the sales price will break all records.
By Friday evening, the highest bid had risen to over 380,000 francs. For the price you could easily afford several luxury sleds. For comparison: A new Porsche 911 Carrera is available in Switzerland from 137,100 francs.
“ZG 10” cost 233,000 francs
The previous record holder in Switzerland is “ZG 10”. The license plate changed hands for a comparatively cheap 233,000 francs.
Three-digit license plates have only been issued for normal cars in the canton of Zurich since 2018. If you want a three-digit number, you have to get hold of it at one of the auctions on the Road Traffic Office’s website. The revenue from the license plate auctions goes into the state coffers.
So far, “ZH 499” is the lowest Zurich number in traffic. At an auction in 2020, the license plate achieved 52,000 francs. In June 2022, a bidder paid 194,000 francs for “ZH 888”. This made it the most expensive license plate in the canton to date. (noo)
