So should this be 89 for when it was registered or 87 when it was made?

The year in which it is registered is not important: it is still a 1987 Lamborghini.

Because most cars are registered very soon after they are built. This car carries a personalised plate (B4ULL, like BULL, the bull in the Lamborghini badge), before this plate was registered to it, it may have had a normal plate (D or E reg). I remember from the video that this is a left hand drive car, it was probably imported to the UK.

Now we are talking about the registrations i think we should add the year of when the car was started to be produced, this way we will always have an order, becaus enow we have same cars from same years, but some with the year of the start of the production, others with the year the plate states, we should put the same to them all, it is much easier to get the year a car started to be produced.

You should never trust in the license-plates of movies. The majority is faked (mostly badly faked).

And about British plates, you should think about the possibility to get personalized plates since some years. So even it's a correct plate, it will not give the informations, you are expecting.

Exactly Ingo due to that is why i think we should list the production year and not the year the plate states.

But this is not a movie, it's a documentary about cars, so they wouldn't dress cars up with false plates like they do in films (I'm not always sure why they do this).

Then in cases like these we should notify that tyhe year we add is the year the plate says.

Do you mean that personalised UK plates get shifted from car to car? Certain year plates that fit an "interesting" combination are often up for sale, people buy these plates to personalise their car and to hide the year (I notice lots of BMW X5s and Range Rovers have personalised plates).

I posted the DVLA info for this plate (at the top of the page) and it says the car was made in 1987. End of story.

@G-Mann: just two weeks ago I came back from my vacations in Scotland. I've seen there several cars, which had number-combinations, which originally should belong to much older cars, also numbers, which were originally Irish from the 70ies.

As a license-plate-collector I'm looking on this.

P.S. A small kick to the "nationalistic" discussion in the neighbour-thread: In Scotland you never see the new Euro-style-license-plates with an English flag on the side, also not with British flag (one single Scottish combination with a Union Jack, I've seen) - all other have the Scottish St.Andrews Cross on their plate. The Euro-stars I've only seen in England, in Scotland neither.

We always processed in that order:
- if precise year of car is identifiable (visible details, or info like DVLA) then we use it
- else we give a range of years ; within that range, if the year of the plate (and that the plate is not obviously fake) matches that, we use the plate year.
When the car is registered is not important. As said above, most of the time the car is registered in the year it is built, so it is a more or less reliable info when we do not have other indication (which is not the case here: we have the build year).

For most of the cars you can know the exact year if there are enough details (and if you have enough knowledge). There is no "first year of production" in such case.
So it is normal that not all cars have the same year. Some have the first year of the model production, some have their exact year because it is known.
In the same way, some have just the model name, some other have full trim and engine info indicated.

The attraction of Northern Ireland registrations - LLL NNNN with one of the letters either I or Z - is that they don't have year letters as used in Great Britain between 1963-2001, so they don't betray the age of the car. The others were probably cherished (transferred) numbers.

The annoying thing about the British numberplate system is that you can't have any word you like on the plate (unlike in America, their plates are much cooler), it has to fit a certain combination of letters and numbers, so most of these plates people pay for are meaningless to most onlookers. I couldn't have a British personalised plate that said "G MANN" if I wanted to, but maybe in America I could (unless someone in the same state already had that on their plate).

I remember that complete ponce David Beckham once got in trouble for altering (he probably used a marker pen, the idiot) one of the numbers on the plate on one of his cars to a 7 so it would say "DB7" (his initials and shirt number).

Another imbecile footballer, Wayne Rooney, had an Aston Martin (which he later crashed) with a plate that read "WAZ 8". Most English blokes know that "waz" means "to have a piss" or it could be short for "wassock" (slang for "idiot")

In Pinneberg, close to Hamburg, the combination PI-SS could be possible, but you don't have a chance to get it. The authority doesn't allow it, a) for the "piss", b) "SS" is -normally- never available on German plates.
Otherwise: you can have S-EX (Stuttgart) or SE-X (Bad Segeberg).

In Belgium I think that they did not use the 3-letter word combinations that could be annoying (e.g. "cul", meaning "ass") but I am not sure. Anyway it is possible to buy them as personalized plate. Only plates really forbidden are political party names and the use of "000" for numbers (though that I recently saw one...)

That was Steve Parrish the former motorcycle racer and team mate of Barry Sheene. He also had a Mercedes with the number PAR15H - until the guy who really owned that number spotted it!
