The third last Volkswagen Citi Mk1 off the production line was officially handed over to its highest bidder, Dolf Jonker, for R300 100 late last week.
The owner of Auto Trust Body Repairers in Port Elizabeth, his bid on the Bidorbuy website was nearly three times the listed retail price of the limited edition Volkswagen Citi Mk1.
Dolf Jonker said, "My main motives for the highest bid were to own a piece of history associated with the Volkswagen Citi as well as to support the local charity organisation, Ubuntu Education Fund. I am delighted with the outcome."
At the same event, a cheque from the proceeds of the bid was handed over to Ubuntu Education Fund, a community-based organisation in Zwide, Port Elizabeth.
