This year, Volkswagen came full circle since and as part of an iconic unveiling, Volkswagen hosted Das Auto. Show 2012. at the equally iconic Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre! It’s bigger and better this year! It’s a great miss if you can’t make it there watching the show live!
The show is aimed at introduction this Das Auto concept in Malaysia to help Malaysians understand the Volkswagen philosophy even more.
The Das Auto concept encompasses anything and everything about a car. It means “The Car” and for Volkswagen, the car is more than just a car. It is an embodiment of German engineering, innovations, technology and environment.
It’s really an awesome presentation of the beetles! Everything was so well planned. The lighting, the led graphic, the backdrop, the music, the dancers and of course the center of attraction which is the beetle! It’s action packed. Every fans of VW really enjoyed themselves and stunned by the show I would say!
Volkswagen Das Auto Show 2012 was really a big budget showcase for VW’s cars and it’s really impressive indeed and it’s even better with the icon “Volkswagen Beetles”! The Volkswagen Das Auto Show 2012 @ KLCC offered VW fans close previews of brand philosophy and character, including its technology, innovations and Volkswagen lineups.
The star attraction of this year’s Volkswagen Das Auto Show was the introduction of “The Beetle” – The Bug!, previewed in Malaysia at Volkswagen’s inaugural Show in Bukit Jalil last year.

The original Volkswagen Beetle was first introduced to the world in 1938, and made its way to Malaysia in the 1950s. In 1968, local assembly of the Beetle was started here and to date, around 22.5 million units have been sold worldwide.
Now with a sportier, edgier look, the Beetle still carries much of its classic frame and evokes the same strong emotions every Beetle fan has, both then and today.
The Volkswagen. VW. Das Auto. Show 2012 started with some funny clips showcase of Volkswagen and we enjoyed and laughed together, then showcase the history of Volkswagen together with Volkswagen’s owner sharing on how they feels having a beetle and how people envy them when others see them driving them on the road.
Then, the show started by a synchronized dance performance.
It was awesome synchronized dance performances that dance to the beat of the music and to the movement of the screen backdrop as if the dancers moving those lighting effects at the screen!
Then there’s a singer that sing to the tune of The Icon Is Back and dance / performed together with the icon “Volkswagen Beetles”! The beetles did some cool movements and stunts together with the dancers which make the bug stand out during the entire show
After the cool Das Auto Show presentation, the audiences then proceed to the exhibition hall for more activities and the showcase of Volkswagen lineup.
