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.
Launched just minutes ago, the Proton Satria Neo R3 Lotus Edition is the
latest variant to roll out of the carmakers tuning arm, R3. Based on the
Satria Neo, the car come with the CPS engine, tweaked to
produce 145hp, 20hp more than the normal CPS variant.
True to Lotuss principals, the cars weight have been reduced to aid
performance, FRP side panels with carbon fiber hood and other lightened
parts makes the car 100kg lighter then the CPS variant also.
Suspension upgrade was done with the installation of Ohlin suspension set
and the front brake system have been replaced with four pot calipers and a
bigger and slotted disc from AP Racing.
Only 25 will be produced in conjunction with Proton's 25th anniversary. We
had a sneak preview of the car at the Proton test track; so get your copy
of CBT this weekend for more details.

The World's Fastest Lotus? - /TUNED
Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder.
Though it only has to move around 2,150 lbs, Frank's Lotus makes 680 wheel
horsepower with a
twin-charged 1.8L engine; giving it a better power-to-weight ratio than
Mario Andretti's Formula One Lotus. It's an ongoing project that may never
be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had
to take it for a ride.
