Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Exterior has undergone a complete overhaul.

New spyshots from Paultan reader Faizal Rizal show the upcoming Proton Perdana, which offers a closer look at the thoroughly redesigned front and rear-ends of Proton’s flagship model.

The rear-end of the new Perdana gets new taillamps identical to the one teased at a company event last October.

The next Perdana will feature a new pair of headlights with projector lens, LED daytime running light strips, redesigned grille with bold chrome slat and a contoured hood. Every body panel on the car appears to have been altered. The rear-end gets new taillamps identical to the one teased at a company event last October. Reports suggest that it is 150 mm longer than the outgoing model, which is apparent at the rear end.

It will be based on the eighth generation Honda Accord, and retain the 2.0-litre engine capable of 154 hp and 189 Nm peak torque, as well as the 2.4-litre i-VTEC motor with 177 hp and 222 Nm. Both variants will be offered with a five-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the front wheels.

The current Proton Perdana is reserved only for sale to government officials. Proton has confirmed that this will change, and that the new Perdana will be available for purchase to the public as well.
