What was your grandest purchase on Singles’ Day? Well, this one is going to be tough to beat, because all 11 units of the special edition Volkswagen Polo Black & White, which were exclusively sold on e-commerce platform Lazada, were snapped up in under a minute. That’s right, all 11 cars were booked by 12:01 am on November 11, and all purchase transactions were completed an hour after.
Customers were only required to pay a booking fee of RM799 on Lazada to enjoy the retail price of RM68,488, and they each received added accessories worth RM7,500. The special-run model is only available in Candy White, and each unit comes fitted with a black rear spoiler, black body side mouldings, 15-inch black alloy wheels, black side mirror and authorised Volkswagen window tint.
The rest of the car is based on the regular Polo 1.6 Comfortline Vienna, which hass standard leather seats, R340G head unit with App-Connect and a 1.6 litre petrol engine. The mill makes 105 PS and 153 Nm of torque, with a six-speed automatic transmission.
Last year, Volkswagen made a similar move under with the 12.12 Beetle sale, to which all 12 limited edition Beetles were sold out in 20 minutes. Suffice to say, this Polo fire sale is unprecedented. Tell us, would you buy your car online, dear readers?
