the Malaysian media invited to the Proton R&D Centre in Shah Alam
on May 5th to have an exclusive briefing on the new Proton Waja. To
the information provided and the discussions with various Proton
engineers, we have added our own research to present what we believe
is the most detailed report on the planet. Not all aspects you will
