Personal Registration DE11 BOY Sells For £35,330

Businessman Chris Dawson has spent £35,330 to purchase the personal registration DE11 BOY, which will be used on his Bentley.

Chris is famed for high successful business empire built around the The Range stores. He successfully won the auction for the registration over the telephone whilst also trying to close on a property deal in Marbella, Spain.

He said: "In the words of Derek Trotter, 'lovely jubbly'."

"I just couldn't resist buying it. Those who know me know I'm always up for a laugh and, well, my reputation as the original Del Boy is well known. Hey, it's the perfect investment."

Damian Lawson, DVLA Personalised Registrations' Marketing Manager, said: "DE11 BOY stems from our hugely successful 11-series of registrations released for sale last year and there’s been a huge amount of interest since we announced it was being auctioned here at Down Hall."
