It was a day to remember when 405 Beetle cars and hundreds more visitors gathered on the 13th of July in Putrajaya for the inaugural Iconic Gathering.
The celebration kicked-off early in the morning with a convoy of 138 Beetle cars making their way through the streets of Kuala Lumpur before heading to Putrajaya to join the Gathering. The parade comprised of Beetle cars of all colours, uniquely customised to reflect the personalities of their owners.
Erik Winter, Managing Director of VPCM expressed his heartfelt appreciation to the Beetle owners who had come from as far north as Perlis and from Johor Bahru for coming together.
"It was an emotional moment for us to see the rows and rows of colourful air-cooled and water-cooled Beetle cars and I believe all those who were present today shared this sentiment." "This is a car that has united people across all walks of life, and they all gathered in Putrajaya over one common passion - the Beetle. The sense of kinship was apparent everywhere, and we are grateful to all owners, and especially to our Beetle car clubs and classic Volkswagen communities for making the event a success."
