FIRST DRIVE: PROTON Satria Neo R3 Lotus Racing

http://ignition.my/2010/04/08/first-drive-video-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.





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. Credits to Astromance for the awesome music used in this video : https://soundcloud.com/h-nsound Music : Humble (Original Mix) by Astromance





Proton Satria Neo S2000 Rally car being tested at French Alps
MEM was originally formed in 1982 as an outlet for its owner, Chris Mellors, to compete in British Champion Rallying but soon developed into a successful preparation company winning events and more than 10 championships all over the world since it was formed in 1983. Highlights include MEM winning the British Championship twice, the FIA Production World Championship with the Proton Wira in 2002, the US Pro-Rally Championship in 2003 for Mitsubishi USA and the 2004 FIA Asia-Pacific Championship, again for Proton. Building on this successful partnership between MEM and Proton in Malaysia, MEM was authorised to transform the road going version of Protons Satria Neo model and produce a ground-breaking conversion of the Satria into the full specification Super 2000 car that you see today. The Car Designed by Mellors Elliott Motorsport, (MEM), the new Proton Satria Neo Super 2000 rally car has just raised the performance bar for the rapidly expanding FIA Super 2000 rally series. The concept was developed by using a combination of innovative engineering designs, the 25 years of experience of the teams technical staff but, crucially, also the input from the teams owner and extremely successful driver, Chris Mellors. The result is an astonishingly small and agile car which from the very outset was designed for the driver. With an attractive and aerodynamic package for the front bumper, wings, rear bumper and rear spoiler complimenting the eye-catching Satria design, the Proton S2000 can achieve in full rally trim the smallest frontal area and the lowest roof height in its class even at rally ride height settings. Driver and Co-driver seat positions are fixed at the rearmost possible mounting points to maximise the cars weight distribution but with the pedal box and steering column both adjustable to suit different pilots. The MEM rollcage design uses 35 metres of lightweight Chrome Moly tube together with strategic body strengthening resulting in vastly improved torsional bodyshell stiffness and a no-compromise safety cell for the crew. The cleverly designed side crash protection bars are uniquely shaped to aid driver and co-driver access into and out of the car. The 2 litre Proton Super 2000 engine is derived from the 1.8 litre engine fitted to Protons Waja model and has been further developed by MEMs engineers to produce a reliable 278 bhp @ 7600rpm with a usable power band from 5,500 to 8,500rpm. Combined with the best 6-speed sequential 4WD Super 2000 transmission currently available, (the 532 version from market leaders Xtrac), the car sets new standards for engine performance and driveability. The fuel system innovates too with a quick-change fuel control cassette, (which includes all the fuel pumps, filters and valves), attached to the MEM-designed FIA FT3 safety fuel cell to aid rapid maintenance. Alcon provides the braking power with their latest Super 2000 alloy 4-pot calipers and ventilated discs which combined with the Neos low overall weight of 1150kg gives astoundingly short braking distances. The ventilated disc sizes are independently maximised for both Gravel, (15 rims), and Tarmac, (18 rims), but for both simplicity and cost the brake calipers are common to both setups thanks to a simple mounting arrangement. MEMs engineers have designed the suspension with a relatively conventional layout of wishbone and MacPherson strut, which means it will be easy and relatively cheap to maintain whilst remaining super-reliable. However, the design has cleverly maximised damper travel to such an extent that the bump stops are the only part that stops the body sills hitting the ground on full bump travel! This translates into achieving both an ultra-low tarmac setup with go-kart levels of body roll and a long-travel gravel setup with enormous ability to soak up the biggest bumps. With various anti-roll bars available for both front and rear and with MEMs 25 years of rally experience, the suspension setup can be easily fine-tuned for any rally surface or type. The latest technology is used in the electrical systems with a state-of-the-art Multiplexed wiring system capable of managing the entire cars electronics from a central unit ideally placed in the centre of the car in-between the driver and co-driver. Apart from the weight saving reduction that this achieves, it is simple to operate and, with automatically resetting circuit breakers, this is technology and reliability at its best. The result of all this is a car which not only has well-proven technical advances and novel design but also has simplicity where appropriate to ensure the best possible combination of performance and reliability.

Proton Satria Neo video road test
This is a sporty little hatchback with a lot going for it, not least its looks and Lotus-tuned chassis which make it good fun to drive. Itâs well equipped and the 1.6 litre engine has enough go in it to please the sort of buyer it will attract As you may know, Proton bought Lotus in 2003 which gave it access to some of the worldâs finest chassis tuning engineers and the results shine through in the Satria Neo. Show it a series of twisty bends and it will put a grin on your face like few other hatchbacks. It handles very well indeed yet also rides well, firm but nicely composed over bumps. Certainly the chassis is the carâs strongest suit. As the `neoâ part of the name suggests, this is a revised version of the car and among the improvements has been a programme to make is more refined and quieter on the road. There is a choice of two engines, a 1.3 or 1.6 with the bigger one also being available with the option of an automatic gearbox. I had the 1.6 and itâs reasonably potent with 111 bhp Still and all I did like the Proton. The styling works for me and it seems for others too. At the front there is a distinctive headlamp shape which Proton refers to as `tiger eyeâ projector lamps, the alloy wheels sit under flared arches and at the back the Exhaust tailpipe pokes out in the middle of the valence. Quite a few people asked me what it was and seemed surprised when I said Proton The cabin is a little bit small and I found headroom to be quite restricted but the car is well equipped. There is blue backlighting on the dials, an MP3 compatible radio/CD and Bluetooth for hands-free mobiles. Air conditioning comes as standard so it is not a bad package. I spent a week with the car and couldnât help but like it, even while wishing for a slightly nicer engine. The chassis and the handling are excellent, it looks sporty and the equipment level is generous. Proton Satria Neo From £7,995.

Proton Satria Neo CPS test drive edited.wmv
The Proton Satria Neo CPS is the interim successor of the original, Lotus-tuned Satria GTI. It is the only proper hot hatch priced below RM100,000. It may not be perfect but it is certainly an entertaining car to drive. We can't wait for Proton's new turbocharged engines to find its way into the Satria Neo. In the meantime we will just have to enjoy the Neo CPS. Watch the video to find out if it is a credible replacement to the highly respected Satri GTI For more motoring videos from Mail Motor please visit http://www.youtube.com/user/MailMotor For more motoring stories from Mail Motor please visit http://www.mmail.com.my/category/channel/mail-motor

PROTON SATRIA NEO R3 1.6L
There's no change in the power output of the Satria Neo R3, which is the first R3 model to be built on a production line (incidentally, the hatch is now assembled in Shah Alam); the CPS unit delivers the stock 125 hp at 6,500 rpm and 150 Nm at 4,500 rpm. The suspension has also been left untouched. What it does get is a R3 Design front splitter/lips and rear spoiler, with titanium-coloured side protector mouldings. It also wears R3 Design six-spoke 16-inch alloys, finished in a gunmetal shade, wrapped with 195/50 profile Continental MC5 rubbers. All-round R3 badging completes the exterior work. Inside, the edition gets R3 leather upholstery for the seats, as well as R3 floor mats and a double-DIN multimedia player with navigation. No red-themed contrast accents here -- the interior is pretty much stock, aside from the upholstery. Safety kit is made up of dual airbags and ABS with EBD. Unlike the R3 Satria Neo, which came only in a Fire Red exterior shade with a black painted roof, the Satria Neo R3 is available in three colours, these being Tranquility Black, Fire Red and GTi Silver.The Satria Neo R3 Executive Line MT manual rolls in at RM61,250, with the Executive Line AT version going for RM64,250. Optional R3 upgrades performance upgrades abound, and at promotional prices until the end of the year -- there's a R3 Satria Neo ECU upgrade and full Exhaust system (RM2,841), R3 belt and aluminium pulley (RM315) as well as a R3 lowering spring/suspension set (RM541). Styling items include shoulder line and grille stripe decals (RM140), as seen on the launch examples. For bookings and registrations made by December 31, 2012, the signature R3 side stripe and front grille decal will be included free. There was also a particular Satria Neo R3 example finished in yellow, replete with S2000 side decals to mimic the rally car. As was told, the colour isn't on the palette, so you can't get one yet, but the company is mulling over including it in the shade lineup.
