A Proton Satria Neo for RM115,000? That’s double the normal price of the CPS version and youd wonder who would want to pay so much for one. But apparently, at least 13 people have already put their money down for it and there are only 12 units left (unless Proton decides to make more). The reason why these people have been quick to snap up the special Satria Neo is because it is not only performance-improved but also destined to be a collectors item.

Its the Satria Neo R3 Lotus Racing Edition, an exclusive version developed to celebrate Proton’s involvement with Lotus Racing in this years F1 championship. The ‘R3 indicates that this car has been a project of Protons Motorsports Division (‘R3 stands for ‘Race, Rally, Research) and while past R3 editions may have been just ‘look fast jobs with no change in performance, the Lotus Racing Edition is more than just looks; it had to have a level of performance which would make it worthy of sharing the Lotus racing heritage and success.

The bodywork started off as a standard Satria Neo CPS and to reduce weight, the metal bonnet was replaced with one made of carbonfibre, the same material also being used for the tailgate spoiler and side skirts. Fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) fenders are also fitted a first for a production Proton model and have race-inspired side vents with the Lotus Racing name prominently emblazoned. Besides reducing overall weight by around 62 kgs, the aim of enhancing performance was also achieved by fine.

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 For more motoring stories from Mail Motor please visit
