Tengku Sulaiman Shah takes delivery of custom golden Proton X50!

The Proton X50‘s owner list already has quite a few notable personalities, but it’s just added yet another very important customer – HRH Tengku Laksamana Selangor Tengku Sulaiman Shah Al-Haj Ibni Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Alhaj.

It’s not just any Proton X50 either, because Tengku Sulaiman Shah’s X50 is specially customised by Automotive Conversion Engineering (ACE), a special division within Proton that specialises in customising vehicles, just like this one.

As you can already see, the special customised Proton X50 is decked out in a bright gold paint that’s fit for a royal. The gold hue is accented with distinctive twin black stripes down the centre of the car that can be seen on the bonnet and tailgate, and is also further complemented by unique 10-spoke wheels, finished in chrome.

Other bespoke additions include a tiger ornament on the bonnet, and the Ethereal Bow grille trim is also painted in the same matching gold colour. Further down, the bumper gets additional LED lighting fixtures, while the number plate holder also bears a unique eagle ornament – the eagle is the state animal of Selangor, if you didn’t know.

Over at the rear, there’s a new chrome bar underneath the Proton roundel logo, while the horizontal trim between the taillights is also now finished in chrome, contrasted by the golden Proton word mark.

The tailgate also gets additional badging in the form of a Selangor flag and coat of arms emblem, along with a stylised ‘S’ emblem next to the X50 badge. Further below, the exhaust tips are now finished in gold, while the bumper also see the addition of LED lighting fixtures, as seen on at the front.

We’ve only been provided with one photo of the car’s interior, but from what we can see, it’s also been modified with wooden trim on the dashboard, centre console, door cards, and steering wheel to turn up the “royal-ness” a couple of notches. The black leather upholstery also gets a yellow contrast stitching to match the exterior.

One thing that’s probably unaltered, though, is the powertrain underneath the bonnet. In the Flagship guise, which is most likely Tengku Sulaiman Shah’s choice here, the 1.5-litre TGDi turbocharged three-cylinder engine makes 177 hp and 255 Nm of torque, with power sent to the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
