You may be right, but even with my glasses I cant see it too well. Someone suggested Proton, and Proton is built in Malaysia, asians have a tendency to copy parts of other car designs.

Well, without much of the details about the accident what else it there to discuss about it (the accident itself)?

Here's the story from two slightly different perspectives.

Welcome to PanduCermat.org.my - In the News

Joyride goes fatally wrong



Drive safely people. This can happen to anyone.

Engineered like no other car in the world.

dont simply make a comment saying asians tendency to copy. in what ground u make this comment. i'm so sad to hear that even u are so senior to us but still behave like a kid.
fine u are not happy with my Professional Friend, what i'm trying to tell u is that i always open up my mind and accept people opinion, dont act like superConsultant.

hello - just read the links forwarded by W321. The silver car in the top right corner is a Proton. Weren't these cars Mitsubishi spin-offs?
I remember their 80s and 90s cars that totally looked like Lancers.

the car is a 2007 S-Klasse saloon. it is not a Proton, or an E-Klasse, or a Lexus. It is/was a new 2007 S-Klasse.

It hit a solid object at high speed. Again, no matter how safe, no car gives 100% safety.
