The amount paid for the license plate was almost ten times as much as the former most expensive license plate, 'M1', which fetched about $660,000 in Yorkshire, Northern England last July.
Oddly, the expensive license plate displays the number '5'.
He also bid on two other expensive license plates, '55' and '45'.
He won the expensive license plate after placing the winning bid during an auction to benefit individuals with special needs.
You would think the most expensive license plate in the world would at least read '1' or maybe something clever alluding to the owner's wealth.
Talal Khouri, a Dubai-based businessman, made history recently when he became the owner of the world's most expensive license plate.
Khouri appeared extremely proud after dropping a fortune on the expensive license plate with such an arbitrary number on it, which just goes to show that people in Dubai are insanely rich.
So just how much did the coveted '5′ license plate go for at auction?
I will keep it and after my death it will be re-auctioned and probably raise more money that will again be given to charity and humanitarian work," he added.
Reporters asked if the number '5′ had any special or sentimental meaning to Al Khouri.
