You can buy anything online these days, from dinner and cutlery to furniture, and now, cars as well.
And it seems some car buyers really don’t mind giving the test-drive a miss.
Just two weeks ago, Jaguar in Singapore launched an online auction on Cyber Monday (Nov 27) for three of its signature car models.
Now, e-commerce platform Lazada Malaysia has also sold 12 limited edition Volkswagen Beetle cars during its Double 12 sale.

The online shopping event, held by major e-tailers on Dec 12 every year, saw Lazada partner with Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia in a first-of-its-kind partnership this year.
It took just 26 seconds for the first car to be sold, and 20 minutes for all 12 units to be snapped up, Lazada said in a statement.
The cars, which came in two designs, were exclusively available on Lazada, at a price tag of RM112,112.
Buyers could choose from the white and silver “Herbie 53”, or the red “Hot Bug”.
Both have a 1.2-litre turbocharged TSI engine with output of 103.6hp, 7-speed,and a dual-clutch direct shift automatic transmission that powers a maximum torque of 175 Nm.
They also come attached with a five-year manufacturer warranty and five-year roadside assistance.
