KUALA LUMPUR: A RM220,000 Volkswagen Beetle is up for grabs at the upcoming Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2013 (KLIMS13).
Maybank customers who visit the motor show at Putra World Trade Centre here from Nov 15 to 24 stand a chance to win this stylish vehicle.
The 2.0-litre yellow Beetle was sponsored by Volkswagen Group Malaysia, which is one of the major exhibitors of the country’s premier motor show.
With a theme of “Efficiency in Motion”, the event, organised by the Malaysian Automotive Association (MAA), is set to showcase the latest mainstream cars, super cars and green technologies.
At the prize sponsorship ceremony on Thursday, Volkswagen Group Malaysia managing director Dr Zeno Kerschbaumer said that KLIMS13 is a major automotive event and the Beetle is a classic icon “which matches the grandeur of the show and resonates with people from all walks of life”.
The ceremony also saw the appointment of Maybank as the official financier of the event.
The bank will be giving its selected customers – Maybankard and Amex cardholders complimentary tickets to the motor show.
Maybank consumer finance head Hamirullah Boorhan said that the bank was among the largest vehicle loan providers in the country and its support for the event underscored its commitment towards the growth of the local automotive industry.
MAA president Datuk Aishah Ahmad said that KLIMS13 would provide an invaluable opportunity for visitors to check out the latest vehicle models as well as the prototypes of future models under one roof.
She said MAA had so far signed up 50 exhibitors and expected to register more in coming weeks.
The event, which is held every three years, will cover 30,000 sq m of exhibition space and is expected to draw more than 330,000 visitors.
Earlier this month, MAA had roped in AirAsia as the official airline for the event.
