2004 Proton Satria R3 1.8, Race Rally Research’s first-ever star

Established in 2003, Race Rally Research, better known as R3, is Proton’s official performance and motorsports division. Headquartered in Proton’s Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Shah Alam, R3 does more than just cosmetic accessories or sport rims, as they have the desire to achieve the same status like what NISMO is for Nissan and STI for Subaru. Because of that, the team at Proton R3 felt that they needed to come out with a complete tuned-up car with a factory warranty to prove that R3 can be se

This is your chance to own Proton's best car, the Proton Satria R3!

Limited to just 150 units, the 2004 Proton Satria R3 isn’t something you find in a regular used car lot. Keep in mind that each and every unit of the Satria R3 received a number of improvements over the regular Satria, including a double-stitch welded chassis, retuned suspension, stronger brakes, and a tad bit more power. We've explained before why the Satria R3 is such a big deal here. But once in a blue moon (like now), a unit does surface for sale. As seen on Mudah, a seller has posted up his

Top Rank: 12 rare and unique Proton Satria and Satria Neo models

Of all the pre-Geely Proton models, the ones that stand above the rest among Proton fans are the Satria and the Satria Neo. The two hatchbacks are some of the most sporty-looking Proton models ever sold and are beloved by fans. Launched in 1994, the Proton Satria was Proton’s first proper hatchback and was targeted at younger buyers. Judging by the number of Mitsubishi Mirage converts on the road, it’s a cult success. As Proton ventured into their own designs, so too did the Satria with the laun

Ada yang sukakannya, dan macam biasa ada saja ‘haters’ tegar Proton yang tak cukup jari mengutuk Proton dek kerana rasakan Saga Edisi 35 Tahun hanyalah ‘diubahsuai’ dengan aksesori tambahan yang boleh dibeli di kedai 'Abang' (Brother’s).

The Proton Putra, Satria GTI and Wira 1.8 EXI - once marvels of Malaysian motoring

Just last week, we saw the 2020 Proton Saga Anniversary Edition made to celebrate the first Saga launched way back in 1985. Some liked it, but there also were critics that poked fun at Proton - thinking that the Saga is merely a cheap cash grab. Whether or not you liked it is another question, but it’s a fact that Proton had even hotter cars in their 37-year history, namely the Proton Putra, Satria GTI and Wira 1.8 Exi LE.

这辆位于波多黎各的左驾版Proton Satria GTi,是Proton离美国最近的一次

Proton公司在世界各国都贩售过汽车,包括英国、德国、尼泊尔和埃及等。它甚至还出口到了南美洲,但它却从未在美国市售过(由于一场骗局)。 然而,这台Satria GTi却在波多黎各岛上被发现,它由一位名叫Rafael Ivan Rivera的车主精心照料。他在一个专门针对美国本土改装车的Facebook群组中分享了他漂亮的GTi。 拉斐尔是一个非常狂热的Mitsubishi车迷。除了这辆马来西亚的小钢炮以外,他还拥有一辆Mitsubishi Mirage,并将其改装上了泰国风格的车体套件。同时,他也在波多黎各Mitsubishi俱乐部中帮手。 据Rafael介绍,这台银色的左驾版(LHD)GTi是从德国运过来的,它很可能是岛上唯一的一辆Proton。由于GTi与Mitsubishi有许多机械部件是通用的,所以更换一些部件不成问题。而他作为岛上Mitsubishi俱乐部的一员,也很容易解决这个问题。 Proton Satria GTi曾在德国短暂地市售过。在当地,它被简单地称为Proton GTi。因此,这是一款存量稀少的小钢炮,而且它看起来保养得非常好,车身几乎没有一丝伤痕。 到目前为

You can find more of his off-beat articles on the motoring world at The Motor Muse.

The best Malaysian cars of all time

Though most of our national cars of that era are known for their mediore quality and lacklustre engines, a few models left a lasting legacy. Here are the best cars that both Malaysian brands have ever rolled out.

Mention Malaysia and its almost a travesty to not talk about Proton. Talk about Proton and its borderline blasphemous to not note about their Race Rally Research (R3) division who were responsible for lots of special cars along the carmaker’s 35-year history. Founded in 2003, R3 is a company formed out of love for all things high-performance. As it says on the tin, they specialise in researching, engineering and producing race and rally cars, and that often translates to special-edition R3 cars

有史以来最好的大马国产车

从80年代到90年代起,Perodua和Proton就一直在马来西亚生产汽车,而这两个品牌也都有一些车型出口到了海外。尽管在那个年代,大部分国产车的质量和动力都很一般,但也有几个车型成为了不朽的经典,以下就是这两个品牌推出的最棒的车型总结。 Perodua Kelisa 如果说VW Beetle是德国的人民之车,那么在Perodua Myvi问世之前,Perodua Kelisa就是马来西亚的人民之车。这辆比Perodua Kancil大上一点的五门掀背小车在2001年正式亮相,并且因为有着良好的操控性和燃油效率,它很快就收到了大马人民的青睐。 由于有着如同卡丁车一般的灵敏操控,用平价版Mini来形容Kelisa是最合适不过的了。无论从哪个方面来看,你都可以说Kelisa取代了Mini的地位,因为这辆经济实惠的掀背小车十分实用,而且也有着活力十足的驾驶体验。 Proton Wira 1.8 EXi DOHC——C99限量版 Proton Wira 1.8 EXi DOHC又被车迷们称为C99,它是为了达到世界拉力锦标赛N组的规格而开发的。FIA同时也要求,参赛的车型至少要有2,500辆
