The beginning of March brings with it a certain sense of anticipation for motorists as they eagerly await spotting the first new number plate of the year, and this Thursday sees the release of the ‘18’ plate take to British roads.
To mark the driving date, webuyanycar.com has released a car crazy puzzle, which is bugging internet users across the country.
In a brain teaser baffling the internet, a car with its number plates installed incorrectly is hidden in a busy street scene in the specially created puzzle. Can you find the car in question among the sea of vehicles, roads, pavements and pedestrians?
Richard Evans, head of technical services at webuyanycar, said: “It’s always a thrill when you see a brand new registration plate on the road for the first time and an even greater joy if you’re the one behind the wheel of a new motor.
“Since we first launched, webuyanycar.com has purchased over a million cars, from thousands of registration plates dating back to the original ‘Driving Miss Daisy’ car, which was registered back in 1963. We think this brain teaser is a fun way to get motorists excited about the latest new cars they’ll see on the road this spring.”
Since the release of ‘17’ plate in March last year, webuyanycar.com purchased more Ford Fiesta’s than any other car, with silver being the most popular paint colour British motorists sold.
The priciest motor purchased in the last year was a 2016 Rolls Royce Wraith Coupe, while the rarest was a 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.
Meanwhile, second-hand cars bought by webuyanycar.com in the last the 12 months have clocked over 14 billion miles in total – enough to go around the earth over 566,000 times.
