London - A classic car dealer has spent over £500 000 on a number plate.

John Collins from Ascot, Berkshire in south east England paid £518 480 at a DVLA auction for the number plate, "25 O", which he is putting on his £10m Ferrari, the Daily Telegraph reports.

He said: ''It is the ultimate plate for the ultimate car. I could have bought a really good Ferrari for the money.

''But I decided I really wanted the plate and I wasn't going to stop bidding on it.''
