Malaysia Boleh – Proton Wira 'Teksi' takes on the Nurburgring

I remember the first time I heard of the Nurburgring was on Top Gear when Clarkson tried to make a lap time of under 10 minutes in a diesel Jaguar. He barely made the time but was outclassed by Sabine Schmidt. Needless to say, I always imagined how fast a Proton would go round the famous “Green Hell”.Well, a pair of Dutch twin brothers did just that with their taxi-liveried Proton Wira!

Isuzu is currently the world's biggest manufacturer of diesel engines. The 1.9-litre Ddi Blue Power engine is one of the most reliable engines today and their line-up only consists of pick-up trucks and, occasionally an SUV. But there was a time when Isuzu made cars.

Indonesia will limit import of Proton X70 until Malaysia opens up its car market further

Last week, this column discussed the challenges that lie ahead in exporting the Proton X70 to Indonesia. While the Proton X70 was able to race to the top of the sales chart almost as soon as it was launched, it will not enjoy such luxury in Indonesia.As an imported model, the Indonesian government will certainly not grant Proton any tax incentives the way the Malaysian government does. Without a significant price advantage, it’s will have a harder time going up against the Honda CR-V.
