Volkswagen Malaysia is organizing the largest Beetle gathering in the country, for the first time. The said event will be held at the Putrajaya’s Palace of Justice on 13 July. This gathering is a domestic record-breaking attempt for the brand. Volkswagen Malaysia intends to break the current record for the Beetle. All classic and new Beetle owners are called to action to join the cause.
This occasion also marks a fitting send-off for the Beetle as Volkswagen announced the model’s final production in 2019.
The celebration will kick-off with a 150-strong Beetle Sunshine Tour convoy that will be flagged off in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. The convoy will be making its way through the streets of the Golden Triangle before proceeding to Putrajaya where it will join the other Beetle cars at the Palace of Justice.
There’s a good two weeks for interested Beetle owners to register for participation in this momentous gathering. Simply go to and register at Volkswagen’s website https://bit.ly/2X2poH7 . Participation is free, and details of the event are provided during the online registration. All participants will also receive a certificate of participation from Volkswagen.
Erik Winter, Managing Director of Volkswagen Malaysia, commented, “Volkswagen ends production of the much-loved Beetle this year, and we want to give this global bestseller the send-off it deserves by celebrating its legacy. We would like to invite owners and Beetle enthusiasts to the gathering to help us break the record and celebrate the world’s favorite Bug. This is a great opportunity for Beetle enthusiasts to admire classic and current Beetle models in all its incarnations, and with many of them personalised to match their owners’ colorful personalities.”
