The Tiger Car was conceptualised by business tycoon Aw Boon Haw as a unique marketing tool for his Tiger Balm empire. Through the 1920s and 30s, he created several of these Tiger Cars that captured the eyes and hearts of Singaporeans. Although the cars were a wonderful publicity stunt, sadly none of the original remained.
