Zarouni wasn't playing around when it came to the auction:
“I attended the licence plate auction only to win No. 1. My ambition is always to be No. 1. I have no plan to win other numbers,” he told Gulf News, adding that he was prepared to win at any cost.
In addition to the No. 1 plate, 59 other plates were auctioned Saturday, fetching more than 50 million dirhams in total. Plate numbers 12, 22 and 50 were sold for more than a million dirhams each.
