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.

3. Inpira Rear Apron
4. Inpira Ducktail Spoiler

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.

too bad no performance tweaks but it'll be fun to have the 2.0 MT :D
