Loke revealed that aside from FF 8, the other most expensive plates were FF 9 (RM911,999), FF 3 (RM639,000), and FF 2 (RM638,000).

Among the five numbers that garnered the most interest were FF 199, which had 34 bidders, followed by FF 51 with 32 bidders, and FF 155, FF 555, and FF 1688, each attracting 29 bidders.

According to Loke, “In terms of total number of bidders and winners, the FF series also saw the highest participation since the launch of the JPJeBid online application on April 15, 2019.”

Due to an overwhelming response, the system experienced a crash on Thursday, prompting the Road Transport Department (JPJ) to extend the bidding period by an additional 24 hours.

Loke expressed his apologies for any inconvenience caused and acknowledged the need for system improvements to prevent such occurrences in the future.

Remember the song from Altimet called ‘Kalau Aku Kaya’? Our heads went straight to the chorus “Kalau aku kaya, hari hari hari raya…”
