We can finally see our first national car, the 1985 Proton Saga immortalised in the form of a miniature car.

Mattel, the manufacturer of Hot Wheels announced a partnership with Malaysian carmaker Proton to produce a miniature model (1:64 scale) of our legendary national car, earlier today at the Mattel Malaysia Plant in Perai, Penang.

The plant, which is the largest Hot Wheels factory in the world, will be producing about half a billion new Hot Wheels cars every year from early 2023, as reported by FMT.

According to Bernama, Mattel Inc’s president and chief commercial officer, Steve Totzke, said the partnership is done to commemorate Mattel’s 40th anniversary in Malaysia.

This is an exciting partnership as we join to develop a Hot Wheels car, modelled after the original Proton Saga, the first model manufactured by Proton, which will now become a part of Hot Wheels’ singles collection.
