Large Endowment Expected for Naughty Number Plate

Infamous PEN 15 Due to Hit Regtransfers Auction Site

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - Dec. 21, 2012) - Renowned the UK over as the king of the naughty number plates, PEN 15 which has been banned from advertisements for being too X-rated, is set to arouse interest as it goes under the hammer via the Regtransfers' UK auction site, in the New Year.

Regtransfers, the largest independent private plate specialist in the UK, believes the phallic-themed registration could be sold at the number plates auction on 28th January for a fee as large as £100,000. Pundits at the company also think the memorable plate would make the perfect alternative gift for any good natured car enthusiast that doesn't take life too seriously.

Back in 2005, an advert adorning the plate was deemed unacceptable by the Sun newspaper and was relegated to a smaller listing, a fact Regtransfers marketing manager Angela Banh still finds funny today: "PEN 15 is a DVLA approved number plate, it is a three letter two number combination - there is actually nothing rude or inappropriate about it, it's just the way that it is interpreted by some!

"Obviously, there are connotations associated with the plate, but arguably, it has become something of a modern day antique and in addition to providing hours of conversations and joviality, the PEN 15 plate is also a wise investment."

There are a plethora of naughty number plates to buy from Regtransfers including BO11 L0X, ORG 45M and 53 XEY.

Regtransfers is the largest independent specialist in registration plate transfer in the UK. For more information on DVLA number plates call 01582 967777 or visit
