I was on my way back from UIA to my home. There was a police road block just after the Karak toll. I hate road block when I to rush for my errand.
Suddenly I saw a strange looking vehicle with black stickers everywhere on its body between the traffic. I realized that it was a Proton MPV. At that time, I was replying SMS so I don’t have the opportunity to take the picture.
Since my car is crawling to get through the road block, I never thought that I can get the chance to take the picture of it. After taking an exit to the left, I just want to rush back home and suddenly I’ve met again with the MPV.
I drive carefully while tailgating the MPV on the middle lane. I place my handphone on the steering wheel and try to get the best shot while driving. I know that its quite dangerous but I really wanted to take the picture. I tried to get closer but I’m do have to keep a safe distance.
After few rear shots, I think I should give up taking the pictures. I’m going to Melawati and I switched into the left lane. That’s how I finally manage to get this shot. Actually they saw me tailgating them with my cellphone on the steering. That’s why they slowed down the car.
Well, its not a big deal because most people can easily check Paultans’ blog to see the artist impression of the MPV. But I will always remember that day because it was my first time taking my own spyshot!
Since its been a long time since I do car rendering, let me showcase some quick and dirty rendering of the Proton MPV. The side view is taken from the UK patent. I hope I can improve my rendering technique during this break.
I wonder, is it possible if during the testing, they ran out of gas and they will have to refuel at a petrol station. Then its easier for people to take a picture of it right? Or on another scenario, if the driver suddenly having a stomachache, then he’ll have to go to a public toilet. What do you think?
