    INSPIRA R3 available for booking!

    Submitted by hezeri on Tue, 01/11/2011 - 11:45am

    OUR friendly blogger, Funtastickodesign informed us that Proton Sales Blogspot has announced that the R3 inspired Inspira is now available for booking.

    It seems that only 100 units are available, though judging from our past experience with the Wira 1.5L SE, Proton might go beyond that if response is good.

    Below are the details of the Inspira R3 that we got from the blog and judging from this, our hunch is correct - the Inspira R3 is only focussing on cosmetic changes. We will upload the pictures as soon as it is available.

    SPECIFICATIONS:
    Engine: MIVEC 1.8 MT
    Full Bodykit:
    1. Inspira Front Bumper Splitter
    2. Inspira Side Skirt
    3. Inpira Rear Apron
    4. Inpira Ducktail Spoiler
    Tyres: 225/40/90W Yokohama AR01
    Rims: 18x7.5 Advanti Racing M8501
    *Perceived Value of all items above was RM9,000

    COLORS:
    Solid White - 70 units
    Genetic Silver - 21 units
    Tranqulity Black - 7 units
    Plum Red - 2 units

    How much price for this Inspira R3?
    There's no change on OTR
    (Solid - RM84,549 ; Metallic - RM84,999)

    How much is the booking fee?
    RM500 only

    When can i place my booking?
    Booking can be place starting by today (1st Nov 2011)

    When can customer receive the car after my booking date?
    2 weeks to 1 months depending on color availability

    IT seems that local blog, funtastickodesign has managed to scoop the pictures of the new Inspira R3, this time again from the picture, it is from the popular online classified service, mudah.my

    The bodykit certainly makes the Inspira looks meaner, and the choice of wheel design definitely matches the overall lines of the car. In fact, judging from these pictures alone, the Inspira R3 looks hotter than the Mitsubishi Lancer GT!

    From the price, we suspect only the Inspira 1.8L Manual is available with the kit. We also heard rumours that a 2.0L Manual version of the Inspira might be introduce later on.

    We heard that even some quarters in Proton do not realise the car is already up for bookings. We hope Proton will soon come out with an official statement confirming the availability of this sporty looking sedan.

    Dissapointed... A fan of R3 here... If they just want to make cosmetic changes, should just call it SE or something like the wira SE. R3 and known to have some bump in power, handling, and race stuff like seats and momo T.T

    the earlier 1.8E came with 2-5 years free service and some cash discounts. this unit no discount and no free service...just bodykit and rims plus tires....so its got pros n cons.
