Not only the Arabians go crazy when it came about number plates. The Formula 1 star, Lewis Hamilton spent nearly $400,000 for a personalized number-plate. His black 4x4 Mercedes-Benz now features the ’LEW 1S’ number plate.

The plate was formerly owned by property tycoon Bob Lewis, who bought it last year for less than $100,000. "A friend said he had been reluctant to part with the plate but (Hamilton’s) offer had been too good to refuse," the British newspaper Daily Telegraph revealed.

"I am lucky to have quite a lot of money and I would like to be able to give some of it away," the German told ITV.

Personalised number plates are usually bad enough, reiterating the make/ model of the car, but this takes the cake.
Narcissistic much?
