Personalised car number plates have always been an acquired taste. Why people spend thousands of pounds on acquiring official name tags for their car will always remain a mystery to many. Whatever your view, the fact is that personalised plates are out there and business is booming.

This is Afzal Khan, car designer and businessman, who paid £440,000 for the number plate F1 in 2008. He then put the registration on his significantly less expensive £300,000 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren hypercar.

This number plate is a little unfair on the diminutive Toyota IQ. With CO2 emissions of just 93g/km it’s one of the greenest cars on the road.

This is James Bond’s beautiful Aston Martin DB5 complete with personalised number plate just before the car was sold at auction for £2.6m in 2010.

As dream jobs go Dr Mark Beeston’s is hard to top. He’s the official 'pie ambassador' for Dunckleys Pies, having been crowned supreme champion at the 2012 British pie awards. If you’d achieved similar qualifications, wouldn’t you put them on your number plate?

This is Bessie, Dr Who’s preferred mode of transport when the Tardis is in the garage getting its MOT. It’s a Siva Edwardian, a fibreglass-bodied kit car based on a Ford 103E Popular and it’s been driven by Dr Who incarnations numbers three, four, five and seven.

The WHO 1 number plate isn’t actually a legal registration and the car had to wear MTR 5 when shooting on public roads. We’re surprised they bothered, the police would surely have their work cut out tracing the whereabouts of a timelord.

We’re not sure which number plate is more appropriate here, the ‘EVIL’ registration on the moody but malfunctioning Mercedes-Benz CLK Black Series or ‘1 TOW 4U’ on the tow truck. Take your pick.

Car number plates come free with most cars but if you want to have a registration like ‘1O’, you’ll probably need well over the £210,000 it was bought for in 2009.

This is classic personalised number plate paring seen in Chelsea, London. If you see any other famous Shakespearean quotes on car registration plates, be sure to let us know.

Could you really begrudge the ever-genial Peter Alliss, TV’s voice of golf, a cheeky putting-themed number plate for his Bentley? No, we thought not. Those sunglasses are another matter though
