I do not know whether this is true or not but i have read the Akta Kastam 1967, Perintah Kastam(Nilai-nilai kenderaan Motor yang diimport pasang siap) 2006. You might want to dispute this but i find the exact same price mentioned on other websites.
Here's a car i extracted from this list of 455 types of imported cars:
Honda Jazz 1.5 VTEC
Selling at ~RM 103,800 has a CIF* value of RM41,627
*CIF - Cost Insurance Freight= includes the cost of the goods, the freight or transport costs and also the cost of marine insurance, EXCLUDING tax.
- Considering a generous RM7000 profit for the car seller, RM103,800 - RM7000 = RM96800
- RM96800 - RM41627 = RM55173 profits for the government for every Honda Jazz you buy.
- As CNN reported, the cost of a Malaysian astronaut to fly to space with Russia is $25 million = RM 83,713,542.74.
- With this amount, (RM83,713,542.74 (fly to space cost) / RM 55173 (Honda Jazz tax)), we need to buy 5518 Honda Jazz to generate the cost to fly to space.
