It is the world's most expensive plate. The plate had the letter and number P7 it. The previous highest price was also set the UAE. That was in 2008, when someone paid $14.3 million a license plate the number "one" on it. It is not known who broke the record earlier this week. However, locals say it might be difficult the person's identity to remain a secret. The sale is big news in Dubai, so many drivers will be aware the P7 plate.
The money the record-breaking license plate will help poor people worldwide. The cash will go to a charity called the One Billion Meals Endowment.
