Volkswagen Polo Harlekin is a unique car. Some will call them a painter’s nightmare, others an automotive icon of the 90s. The idea of ​​combining body elements in contrasting colors was to serve only for promotion, but it turned out that there is no shortage of customers for such painting. In the end, nearly four thousand units of this car were produced. One of them – renovated by mechanics – will soon be auctioned off for the 31st Finale of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity.

Yellow, green, blue, red – these are the four colors that alternately covered the bumpers, hood, doors, wheel arches, thresholds and the trunk lid of the popular “polowe” in the special Harlekin version. Several copies of this type rolled off the assembly line in 1994-1995, but it was supposed to be only an element of promotion of the third generation of the model, without serial production.

As is often the case in such situations, the unconventional idea met with great interest from customers. Volkswagen dealers, as well as the headquarters in Wolfsburg, received many inquiries about the possibility of purchasing a model in an unusual color version.

In the autumn of 1995, the German manufacturer decided to release a limited tranche of 1,000 units. Each buyer of a car from this pool received a certificate and a keychain with the number of the purchased car. But demand persisted, so production continued, and eventually nearly four thousand Harlequins were built by the end of 1997.

WOŚP 2023. Harlequin to be auctioned for the benefit of the 31st Final

Almost 30 years later, Harlequin’s colorful spirit is back. Employees of the Bidcar.pl company did a decent research job and somewhere in Germany found a 1995 copy for sale. After importing to Poland, it was thoroughly checked for technical condition. Necessary repairs were carried out and fluids and filters were replaced. Most of the work, however, was put into what distinguishes the car – the bodywork. All losses have been supplemented and each damaged element has been repainted in accordance with the original colors. In addition, the rims were painted, and the original blue steering wheel rim and gear knob were refreshed (as was the entire interior). The whole is complemented by custom-made floor mats and a trunk mat.

– Inspired by the name of the Most Beautiful Festival in the World, we christened our Harlequin Polo’and’Rock. The festival and our car from the auction are of equal age. They also share a love of colors. Visually, the Harlekin is a unique car, and the very sight of it makes you smile. Just like the activities of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity. That is why we considered it an ideal candidate for an auction supporting this year’s GOCC finals – says Artur Kopania, co-founder of Bidcar.pl and one of the originators of the auction.

The online auction will run from 24 to 31 January on the Bidcar.pl platform. On the auction page you will be able to read a detailed expert’s report describing the technical condition of the car, numerous photo documentation and a report with the history of the vehicle. On January 29, Harlekin will stand on the Wrocław Market Square during the 31st Grand Finale of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity. The entire auctioned amount for the “half” and the auction commission will go to the account of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity.

– This is not our first charity auction and not the first support for the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity. Last year, as Poleasingowe.pl, for the 30th finale, we found and restored a 30-year-old Ford Sierra. The same model, from the same year and in the same color as the Sierra, which was driven by Jurek Owsiak during the 1st final of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity. The car, which brought tears to Owsiak’s eyes, was auctioned for over one hundred thousand zlotys, recalls Kopania.

– We hope that the Polo Harlekin will also receive no less money – he adds.
