In February this year, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) teamed up with us to raise funds and awareness for the endangered Malayan Tapir. The exclusively designed capsule collection was titled "Modern Nostalgia". The collaboration launches its second instalment, "Modern Nostalgia pt.2" which is a premium range that draws its inspiration from the raw, rugged and hands-on car workshop life.
This limited-run capsule collection, "Modern Nostalgia pt.2" captures key elements from both brands, where racing and iconic Volkswagen models are stitched together with snapshots of vintage Malaysiana design elements, sticking to our roots here at Tarik. The new designs shift gears up and captures Volkswagen racing heritage and spirit whilst incorporating performance-themed colours that motorheads and car enthusiasts will approve.
Merchandise from the complete "Modern Nostalgia" collection can also be purchased on Shopee and Zalora. A total of 50 percent of all proceeds generated from the sales of this campaign will be donated to the Kenaboi Forest Reserve in Negeri Sembilan on World Tapir Day on 27th April 2021.
The Malayan tapir is the only Asian species native to the island of Sumatra, Peninsular Malaysia and Southern Thailand with a distinctive coat pattern. The tapir has a lifespan of up to 30 years, but agricultural developments and deforestation, being hunted for food and sport and illegal animal trafficking have resulted in an alarming decrease in their numbers. It is estimated that there are only less than 3,000 of them left.
