It’s time to say bye-bye to the beloved VW Beetle, and Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) is giving it a stylish send off with the VW Beetle Collector’s Edition run-out special.
Introduced last night during the VPCM Bye-bye Beetle Party at The Gasket Alley, PJ ahead of this weekend’s upcoming Iconic Gathering record attempt event, the Collector’s Edition special is aimed squarely at, well, collectors (duh) with an affinity for the iconic Bug.
Based on the existing Beetle 1.2 TSI, VPCM keenly pointed out that this special comes decked out with an array of commemorative accessories worth about RM12,000, hence its steeper asking price – more on this in a bit.
Setting this special apart from the regular base car are things like its rear spoiler, decorative film, chrome exhaust tips, aluminium sports pedals, scuff plates, VW Tint and an emblem marking its production run.
Furthermore, the VW Beetle Collector’s Edition can be had four iconic colour choices, namely Pure White, Tornado Red, Blue Silk and Hanabero Orange.
Not special enough? Well, VPCM says that only 75 units have been allocated for Malaysia, and each owner will receive an official Collector’s Edition certificate of ownership on top of it all.
For this final call, each will command a price tag of RM164,390 (excluding insurance and registration). Said price will include VPCM’s 3 years free maintenance, 5 years unlimited mileage warranty and 5 years roadside assistance packages.
