The Perak state government will auction off the 16 units of Toyota Camry 2.4 which were used as official cars by executive councillors under the previous coalition government.
According to a statement of an open tender sent to the advertising division of a Malay daily here Tuesday, the auction would be held from May 4 to 18.
The tender statement issued by the Perak State Secretariat said the auction would be carried out at the carpark of the Bangunan Perak Darul Ridzuan here from 9.30am until 4pm.
The statement said the vehicles could be purchased either in bulk or individually at a reserved price of RM148,000 each.
The cars, with the registration numbers AGS10, AFD11, AFD22, AFD33, AFD55, AFD66, AFD77, AFD88, AFD99, AFD333, AFD999, AFF33, AFF88, AFF99, AGS828 and AEU606, were all registered on Jan 9.
The statement also said that all the cars were bought new and used between one and two months with low mileage and under three-year warranty by the manufacturer.
However, it is learnt that the car with the registration number AGS10 which was used by former mentri besar Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin would not be auctioned off as he was said to have made a booking to buy the car.
Anyone intending to purchase the cars must submit their offer before noon on May 18. — Bernama
