PM10 Anwar Ibrahim’s official car is a stretched Proton Perdana when submitting his list of cabinet members

Prime minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said last week that he cancelled an order for a “Mercedes S600” made by the previous administration and would use any vehicle available, including a Toyota Camry with the registration plate WRN 222.

However, while on his way to the National Palace to submit the list of new cabinet members to the Agong on Friday, PM10 rode in a stretched Proton Perdana bearing VED 4008, which is another official vehicle available to him.

This isn’t the first time a Malaysian prime minister has used an elongated Perdana as their official car. Former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak was also seen using the same Perdana limousine, which is based on the facelifted version of the D-segment sedan (itself based on the eighth-generation Honda Accord) released in 2016 that was heavily remodelled.

Previous Proton Perdana Limousine

Before that, PM6 had the pre-facelift Perdana limousine – commonly known as the “Accordana Limo” – that was presented to him in December 2013. That earlier model with the plate number W11N retains the same front and rear ends of the Accord, with only the logo swapped out for Proton’s tiger.

Another version of the “Accordana Limo” was also made for PM4 and PM7 Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, although his was in a different specification that had more luxurious interior. If you’re curious, we previously prepared a post covering the evolution of the Perdana, including the government cars.

All long wheelbase models from Proton like the Limousine, Executive and Chancellor are produced by Automotive Conversion Engineering (ACE), a subsidiary of Edaran Otomobil Nasional (EON) now under Proton Edar.

      PM Anwar supports local. All the previous PMs, they always say they support local and are proud of PRoton but they drive Porsche etc.

      Syukur we got a humble and hardworking PM. Malaysia will berjaya and become first world with Anwar.

      If PN win pilihanraya……they will use expensip Mercedes S600

      Government vehicles are only leased for 3-5 years on average. After that, they are usually sold off by Spanco to the public when new cars are acquired. Thus the public can buy them at cheap prices. Now the top management govt officers are provided with X70 and Camry.

  • Probably safer to travel in an AV spec Perodua than a chop and stretched car. Perhaps paultan can highlight some of the safety concerns when stretching a car.

    May I throw a question to our dear forum readers.
    Would u mind if the PM gets the Merc S600 if he can save Billions of RM through a transparent system of governance?
    Now ,less than a week he already gets preliminary “feedback”there are serious question marks on RM600 Billion spent during MooMOO’S WATCH,5G awards to the Swedish Telco giant etc.
    If he can plug all the billions of Rm in leakages,our new PM deserves a top specs Rolls Royce.
    But meanwhile PM Anwar is willing to be prudent to avoid wastages.An “uncle uncle” Camry is also no problem to him.
    The moral of the story is, “Give credit when it is due”, for good governance and due diligence.

        Logically deducted:
        If PH mentris are Rakyat Malaysia, then PH mentris must fulfill their promises to give RM 1.50 petrol.
        Otherwise if PH mentris are not Rakyat Malaysia, they should not represent Malaysians and go move back to their countries of origin.
