LANGKAWI: A 1926 Rolls Royce Phantom 1 model is among some 50 vintage cars on display at the two-day Royal Langkawi Classic Car Show, which opened at the Mahsuri International Exhibition Centre yesterday.

The nearly century-old car, which is valued at more than RM1 million, is one of the biggest attractions at the show, which was opened by Tunku Temenggung Kedah, Tunku Puteri Intan Shafinaz Sultan Abdul Halim Shah.

The Langkawi Development Authority (Lada) and MY Classic Sdn Bhd, a classic car event management and sales company, co-organised the event.

In his speech opening the event, Lada chief executive officer Datuk Azizan Noordin said the event is one of the many activities held to celebrate the Sultan of Kedah's birthday.

"This is the first time that we organised this event, which we plan to list as one of our yearly tourism activities," he said.

He added that cash prizes, totalling more than RM28,000, await winners of the five categories of classic cars competitions during the show. -- BERNAMA
