Proton delivers one-off "Royal" X50 to YAM Tengku Sulaiman Shah
The one-off custom Proton X50 was developed by Proton ACE special vehicles division
Those of you who're following Proton's official Facebook page would've noticed a post today announcing the delivery of a specially customised one-off Proton X50 to YAM Tengku Sulaiman Shah Al-Haj ibni Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Al-Haj, who is the brother of the Sultan of Selangor.
From what we can see, the special Proton X50 features a special paint body job with contrasting black stripes on the hood as well as the side.
Other unique bits on the exterior include what looks like an eagle's head on the hood, a chromed number plate cover with a golden eagle on it, a golden ethereal bow on the front grille, golden exhaust tips, golden "Proton" lettering at the rear, Selangor royal crests, as well as after market wheels.
Moving into the cabin, we can see black leather seats with contrasting yellow stitching, a generous dose of shiny wooden trim across the dashboard, on the centre console, and on the steering wheel.
Looking at the engine bay of the special "Royal" X50, looks like there have not been any mechanical ehnancements.
In case you didn't know, the X50 here is powered by a 1.5-litre TGD-i three-cylinder turbo engine that is paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox, producing 177PS and 225 Nm of torque.
We were told that the special project was completed by Proton's special vehicles devision called Automotive Conversion Engineering (ACE) which specialises in making customised Protons like this for special customers.
Sources familiar with the matter also reported that there are a number of customised Proton models in Tengku Sulaiman's collection, all of which were built by ACE.
