Satria Neo R3 Lotus Racing edition
The Satria Neo R3 Lotus Racing edition was designed to signify the desire for true racing characteristics and performance. A celebration of Proton’s involvement with Lotus Racing, it was built in the pursuit of excellence and performance through the use of cutting-edge technology with world-class quality.
Track Inspired, Race Proven
The Satria Neo R3 Lotus Racing edition comes with classic Lotus yellow stripes and highlights on Lotus Racing Green.
Tuned for Ultimate Performance
The redefined Satria Neo R3 Lotus Racing edition provides greater acceleration whenever required. Its stiffer and well balanced suspension has been specially tuned to offer greater stability to navigate through challenging corners.
Lighter, Meaner, Faster
The R3 body kit’s lightweight Carbon Fibre bonnet and FRP front fenders provides enhanced racing aerodynamics; intensified by Lightweight R3 Custom alloy wheels that reduce the unsprung weight for improved ride and handling provide you with total confidence when driving this race inspired machine.
Race Bred Enhancement
The cabin of the Satria Neo R3 Lotus Racing edition sports a futuristic dashboard that has been custom colour-coded with customised door trim. Also includes Carbon Fibre effect inserts, sporty Nappa leather seats with specialised Lotus insignia and a multi-function steering wheel.
The AP Racing Brake Kit provides incredible stopping power and total braking control when you are on the open road or twisted track. R3 Tuned Öhlins Coil-Overs Dampers and Öhlins DFV (Dual Flow Valve) technology provides an exceptional blend of ride and handling with added features of right height and damping adjustability. With R3 Race Enhancements to the 1.6 CamPro CPS engine , the Satria Neo R3 Lotus Racing edition offers you an additional boost of power with a balanced spread of power and torque for a spirited drive.
