PETALING JAYA: The Sultan of Johor has won the tender for the much sought after car number plate WWW 1, with the highest bid of RM 520,000.
Sultan Ibrahim Ismail Sultan Iskandar topped 9,999 other bidders including the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, who won the number plate WWW 5.
The results of the tender are available on the Road Transport Department (JP) website.
On Thursday, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha announced that WWW 1 had set an all-time high bid.
The number surpassed the record set by "MCA 1" in 2010 which was sold for RM300,100.

During the period, thousands thronged the three Kuala Lumpur JPJ branches to place their bids for the "WWW" prefix, which is the acronym for "World Wide Web".
