Two international summits are scheduled to take place in Malta and 78 Volvo luxury cars will be used to ferry around the various dignitaries participating in these summits.
These cars will be up for auction in the month of December after the summits. Though CHOGM has not officially confirmed the reports of auctioning off these cars, according to the government sources – “We will be following the exact pattern of 2005 and plans are already in hand so that an official announcement on the holding of this auction will be made at the beginning of December.”
These cars are provided by Gasan-Zammit Motors Ltd. as a part of the sponsorship agreement. After the 2005 summit, 59 BMWs were auctioned and they were sold in less than three hours for around 4.6 million pounds.
