Proton Suprima S with custom kit announced as Hot Wheels Legends Tour 2022 finalist – get your votes in!

Attention, fellow Malaysians – a customised Proton is now in the running to become an official 1:64 scale model by Hot Wheels that will go on to be on sale not just in Malaysia, but worldwide.

The car you see here is a Proton Suprima S owned by William Chong of Nilai, Negeri Sembilan that is the winner of the Hot Wheels Legends Tour Malaysia, which makes it a finalist as it goes on to represent the country in the international contest.

Here’s how you can help our chances of winning. As netizens, you can help by voting for the modified Suprima S in the final round of the Hot Wheels Legends Tour 2022 for the Asia-Pacific region. The winning car for each region will then stand a chance to go on to be selected for a 1:64 scale Hot Wheels car to be made in its likeness.

To vote, polls open today on the official Hot Wheels Instagram page, or more specifically at this Instagram Stories link, here.

This particular Proton Suprima S features a wide-body kit designed by local kit maker JWide Bodykits, which is also the outfit behinf the bodykit for this widebody Proton X50. This is complemented by a set of 18-inch Rays CE28 alloy wheels, and the vehicle sits lower on locally made F-Tuned GT Series adjustable suspension kit.

Powertrain for this customised Suprima S remains largely standard at its core, being the original 1.6 litre CFE turbocharged engine paired with the continuously variable transmission, albeit having received modifications including a high-performance exhaust system, Racechip engine control unit tuning, and more.

        Honda is one of the largest carmaker in the world. This is why Proton and Mario must learn more from Honda to become successful

        You mean honda fanboys are trying to create tools by using to pretend to become toyota fanboys/p2 fanboys, instead of real name of honda fanboys to hate them proton, just because right after seeing toyota sales are so good and any other brands like proton/perodua sales are so good but honda sales are not good. I know who they are, not any of the brands are provoking proton and others but it is only honda fanboys but I can’t simply point you.

      • Adam is my name, not Mario/Wilson.
        Other brands like proton needs to catch up with honda, because other brands like proton are getting weaker and afraid that honda will be big win. Other brands technology like proton and perodua are also not as really strong as honda
