As you may know already, the creator of the iPod, iPad and the iPhone a.k.a. Steve Jobs passed away earlier this month leaving people speechless. Lots of mysteries involving Steve Job’s life remained unsolved but the one involving the lack on a number plate on his Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG was finally solved.
According to Jon Callas, CTO of Entrust, who in the past worked two stints at Apple in various senior security roles, there is a simple explanation for that.
Many of us believed that Steve Jobs had plenty of money to afford paying the fines, but it seems that Jobs was smarter. We already know that Jobs liked the idea of being different and discovered a legal way to keep its car without a license plate.
Apparently, according to California vehicle laws, anyone who buys a brand new car has a maximum of six months to get a number plate to the vehicle.
Nothing new until now, but Jobs made an arrangement with the leasing company to change cars during the sixth month of the lease. That’s right folks, Jobs was exchanging his car for an identical one and that means he didn’t need any license plate for Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG.
