Flabbergasted is probably the only word that just about sums up our reaction to the news that an Indian businessman in Dubai spent AED 33 million on a number plate with the number 5 on it.
Yep, you read that right. AED 33 million. On a number plate. With the number 5 on it. And nope, the number plate has no special powers….but maybe businessman Balwinder Sahani knows something we don’t.
You can pay AED 33 million for a number plate…but you can’t stop others from making their own
This was Twitter’s reaction…
You might be a bit off with that pricing buddy

The memes have been pretty hilarious too
The people of Reddit know Lovin Dubai love this sort of stuff…we’ll let you know if we need anything else Nick
And from the man himself…
“I love number plates, it’s my hobby to collect them”
