- Orphanages visited along the way
As part of their 25th anniversary celebration, national carmaker Proton is going on a nationwide roadshow to celebrate their heritage and share with the people the company's plans for the future.
The two-week Festival Proton 1 Malaysia will make 11 stops around Peninsular Malaysia, kicking off at Stadium Indera Mulia in Ipoh today (18 December) and will include a total of 180 participants and a convoy of 60 Proton Cars, including 25 cars from various official Proton car clubs.
A mobile exhibition will showcase the accomplishments of PROTON over the last 25 years and among the vehicles on display will be several conceptual models that were recently displayed at the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS 2010).
Visitors to the carnival will have the chance to view the Satria Neo Super 2000 rally car which competed in this year’s Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC) and Asia Pacific Rally Championship (APRC); the Exora Extended Range Electric Vehicle which won the ‘Best Range Extender Electric Vehicle’ category in the inaugural Brighton to London Future Car Challenge organized by the United Kingdom’s Royal Automobile Club.
The roadshow will also feature the EMAS hybrid concept global car launched at the Geneva International Motor Show; and fresh from their debut at the recent Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show, the Jebat and Kasturi concept cars. Car enthusiasts are invited to visit the PROTON Design studio for a chance at digital sketching and clay modeling.
