Proton Satria Neo R3 Lotus Racing

on Mar 31, 2010
Proton just unveil their latest car which is base on Proton Satria Neo... The car is call 'Satria Neo R3 Lotus Racing'... So there is nothing surprising to see the car drape in Lotus Racing F1 car's livery... As for the bodykit, I'm very sure that most of you have seen it because this is the standard R3 bodykit used previously on their 'Satria Neo R3' which is the top of the range Satria Neo until this car comes along... Only 25 of these will be produce...


I really like R3 bodykit... Not over the edge while still manage to looks menacing at the same time... Kudos to R3 bodykit designer...


Now to the exciting part!!! This car uses the current Campro CPS engine and its pushing out 145bhp at 7000rpm... As for the torque, it is rated at 168Nm at 5000rpm... The engine is producing 25bhp more compare to standard Campro CPS engine while the torque is up 18Nm...


This car comes equipped with R3 ECU, R3 camshafts plus adjustable alloy cam pulley, R3 underdrive pulleys, R3 titanium header, R3 tuned exhaust system and R3 carbon fiber air box with K&N air filter.


This car also comes with R3 carbon fiber bonnet, front 4-pot AP Racing calipers and Ohlins fully adjustable coilovers tuned by R3!!! Awesome stuff I must say...


R3 carbon fiber air box...


Front 4-pot AP Racing caliper with slotted and vented disc brake...


Ohlins fully adjustable coilovers...




Nice car... Really nice car but the best part of the car is actually the asking price... Give it a guess and I'm very sure most of you will NOT get it right... RM115,000 for this car!!! Is a very nice car but the asking price is a bit steep in my opinion...

Hmmmm... with RM115,000, i will choose to buy Suzuki Swift or perhaps Honda Civic ~

yeah true enough... but for me i will get this car instead of suzuki swift... the reason why this car cost this much is because of the parts... the coil-over is worth around RM20,000 alone!!! and not forgetting the AP Racing caliper which cost a lot of $$$ also... but i guess you don't care about all this... haha...
