What's that DJ Khaled catchphrase again? "Anotha' one?" He'd be on a roll here if he's covering new cars in Malaysia as we just got a picture of this Proton Iriz wearing a familiar paint scheme. Shared by our friends over at Careta, you'll notice the Iriz is wearing the striking black-and-yellow paintjob of the Proton Saga Anniversary Edition, which was built to commemorate the carmaker's 35th anniversary.

Why is the round Thundercat logo missing on the 2021 Proton Iriz R3 Edition?

Amidst all the buzz surrounding the upcoming Perodua Ativa, Proton tried to divert the attention on Malaysia’s newest SUV with its launching of a quartet of limited-edition models including the Proton Iriz R3 Edition and the Proton Persona Black Edition. However, one thing missing on these models is the round Proton "Thundercat" logo.

2021 Lexus RX 300 Luxury Special Edition - RM 12k bodykit?

If you ever thought the 2021 Lexus RX 300 was a little too sedate for Malaysian streets, this should fix it: the RX 300 Luxury Special Edition. This makes it the fourth RX variant in Malaysia, besides the Premium, Luxury, and F Sport variants. And from RM 421,909.50, it's RM 12k pricier than the Luxury variant.

The Proton Putra, Satria GTI and Wira 1.8 EXI - once marvels of Malaysian motoring

Just last week, we saw the 2020 Proton Saga Anniversary Edition made to celebrate the first Saga launched way back in 1985. Some liked it, but there also were critics that poked fun at Proton - thinking that the Saga is merely a cheap cash grab. Whether or not you liked it is another question, but it’s a fact that Proton had even hotter cars in their 37-year history, namely the Proton Putra, Satria GTI and Wira 1.8 Exi LE.

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! The Gravemade brothers from Dutch DIY Mechanics (DDM), Jochem and Ruben turned a regular Proton Wira into a t

Proton is no stranger when it comes to weird models and this Wira Grand Limousine is one such example. Never mind the elongated body (typical of any limousine conversions), the Wira Grand Limousine boasts 6 doors - 2 more than the regular Wira. As seen on Mudah, this particular unit has an asking price of RM 28,000, a tad bit more than a regular Wira. The extra nets you an LCD TV, ambient lighting, and even a fridge.
