The VW Polo Harlekin debuted in 1995 as the firm’s most colorful model of all time. Now, in commemoration of this particular vehicle, a new version was developed based on the original car.
It should be remembered that this curious model was not going to go into production, but such was the acceptance of the company that the vehicle became an unexpected success with more than 3,806 units. Thus, the history of this curious car began in 1994 when Volkswagen presented the third generation Polo.
Thus, the blue color of this model signified the engine and chassis, while yellow referred to equipment, red for options, and green for paint colors. Also, the firm produced 20 vehicles in these colors for promotional purposes and dealer events.
VW Polo Harlekin A very special model
Now, such as the acceptance of this model that the German company took user demand seriously and started a series of 1,000 four-color polo shirts in 1995. At that time, these models were christened “Harlekin”.
Also, Volkswagen initially produced four normal models in blue, red, yellow, and mint green colors. Whereas the body parts like the hood, tailgate, doors, bumpers, and mirrors on those units were swapped out according to a fixed pattern.
Thus, the base color of a Harlekin is the tone that will carry the roof, the thresholds, and the engine compartment. So the front bumper, the front doors, and the mirrors are the same color, as are the doors and the rear bumper.
A little fun for the signature
Similarly, users had the option to order this model, but could not indicate their preference for the base color. That is, they had to wait and see which of the four available tone combinations would play.
On the other hand, the upholstery named ‘Joker’ featured four basic Harlekin colors, along with a blue leather sports steering wheel and a gear knob with the Harlekin logo. These elements were part of the standard equipment in all versions, the radio of this model was Blaupunkt.
Now, the VW Polo Harlekin is a unique and special creation, commemorating the model of 26 years ago. Thus, the subsidiary of the firm in the Netherlands showed the evolution of the vehicle in terms of comfort, safety, and efficiency, especially to give some color to these sad days that are celebrated in these territories
