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.
My new baby! The Satria Neo CPS R3
The standard Satria Neo wasn't really much of a looker to be honest. But
when Proton finally introduced the CPS (mini little V-tec system) to the
Cam-Pro powered Satria Neo, it finally caught my eye. I dreamt about the
car for a whole 3 years. Till one day in the end of 2012, Proton had
announced the last batch of Satria Neo CPS but this time in the R3 package.
3 years of waiting finally worth.
Till now, I never regretted in getting the car.
