All limited edition VW Beetles snapped up just 20 mins after Lazada Malaysia sale launch

You can buy anything online these days, from dinner and cutlery to furniture, and now, cars as well.

And it seems some car buyers really don’t mind giving the test-drive a miss.

Just two weeks ago, Jaguar in Singapore launched an online auction on Cyber Monday (Nov 27) for three of its signature car models.

Now, e-commerce platform Lazada Malaysia has also sold 12 limited edition Volkswagen Beetle cars during its Double 12 sale.

The online shopping event, held by major e-tailers on Dec 12 every year, saw Lazada partner with Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia in a first-of-its-kind partnership this year.

It took just 26 seconds for the first car to be sold, and 20 minutes for all 12 units to be snapped up, Lazada said in a statement.

The cars, which came in two designs, were exclusively available on Lazada, at a price tag of RM112,112.

Buyers could choose from the white and silver “Herbie 53”, or the red “Hot Bug”.

Both have a 1.2-litre turbocharged TSI engine with output of 103.6hp, 7-speed,and a dual-clutch direct shift automatic transmission that powers a maximum torque of 175 Nm.

They also come attached with a five-year manufacturer warranty and five-year roadside assistance.
