The Subaru Challenge 2013 has finally concluded after 75 hours with the winner relieved his ordeal of touching the car is over.

However, his relief was turned into shock when he was told he had to pay the $90,000 COE to drive the car home.

Eyewitnesses said the second place winner who dropped out was initially upset for barely not winning the car, but his sorrow turned to joy when he realised he didn’t even have $90,000 to begin with.

The second place winner, Nor Mani, said: “No wonder on the first day 394 contestants dropped out already.”

“They must have gotten the message that the $90,000 COE was not included.”

Despite the blistering afternoon sunshine, the Subaru Challenge 2013 that kicked off on Saturday with 400 contestants battling it out for the top prize of a car worth S$85,000 fizzled out within the first five miunutes.

At 1pm, contestants placed their hands on the cars, which are parked at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza.

By 1.05pm, 394 out of 400 participants dropped out of the competition the moment they heard the COE alone for the car they have to pay out of their own pockets if they won it is $90,000.

This is $5,000 more than the value of the car itself.

Ah Nee Kwee, one of the contestants who dropped out, said: “I where got $90,000? You think Singapore is Switzerland? Here got Swiss standard of living?”

The last hand remaining on a car wins.

The contest is into its 12th year.

Last year’s winner walked away with his prize after three days, six hours and 30 minutes, a little less than the 2008 record of three days, nine hours, and 32 minutes.

The other six contestants that did not dropped out are Mr Seah’s children.
