FIRST DRIVE: PROTON Satria Neo R3 Lotus Racing
There was a torrential downpour the evening that Ignition.my had the
opportunity to test drive the recently launched Proton Satria Neo R3 Lotus
Racing. Launched in conjunction with Lotus' return to Formula 1 this year,
it really is a very special and very limited edition of only 25 cars. It's
a brilliant car, what a performance Proton Satria Neo should be: good
spread of power and strong acceleration, fun handling and strong brakes,
and aggressive race-refugee styling.
