The 2013 edition of the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS) which ran from Nov 14 to 24 of last year saw Volkswagen Group Malaysia offer Maybank customers who visited the country’s premier motor show the chance to walk away with the brand-new yellow Volkswagen Beetle 2.0.
Recently, the Managing Director of Volkswagen Group Malaysia, Mr Christoph Aringer and Head of Consumer Finance, Maybank, Mr Abdul Razak bin Mohd Nordin presented the mock key to Syed Ahmad bin Mohamed Ghani, the lucky winner of the most powerful Beetle variant available in the country.
Beating out close to 6,000 participants, Syed Ahmad could barely contain his surprise at winning the prize, saying “When I found out that I was the winner of the Volkswagen Beetle 2.0, I really couldn’t believe it. I’d always heard of people winning these contests, but have never won anything or personally known anyone who has, so this came as a great surprise to me. I’d like to personally thank Volkswagen Group Malaysia, Maybank and of course, the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA) for giving me the opportunity to win my dream car.”
Managing Director, Volkswagen Group Malaysia, Mr Christoph Aringer mentioned, “The Beetle is the true definition of an icon, one that has impacted people from all walks of life since the 1930s, and yet, is still instantly recognizable all over the globe today. It is our pleasure as Volkswagen Group Malaysia to be able to see a car enthusiast like Syed Ahmad express his support and appreciation for our model and brand the way he has.”
He also added, “We are delighted to be affiliated with Malaysia’s largest motor show and it has been a pleasure partnering Maybank and MAA, in bringing Malaysians a memorable time with their favourite automobiles and brands. We look forward to the opportunity of working with them again in the near future.”
Launched and available in Malaysia since 7 November 2012, The Beetle 2.0 is currently priced at RM 222,888 and is available for public test drives at all Volkswagen dealer showrooms nationwide. Other variants include The Beetle 1.2 and The Beetle 1.4. For more information, please visit www.volkswagen.com.my
