Last night, I overheard a radio ad promoting a new Proton Inspira variant called the Proton Inspira R3. Curiously, there’s no information on such a product on Proton’s websites; however, an ad by a Proton salesperson on Mudah classifieds reveal to us a few details about this new kitted-up Inspira.
The Mudah ad details the Inspira R3 as being equipped with R3 accessories worth RM9,000, which includes a front bumper splitter, a blacked out R3 grille, sideskirts, a rear apron and a ducktail spoiler. There are also 18-inch Advanti Racing M8501 wheels in a design typical of R3’s styling, wrapped with 225/40R18 Yokohama AR01 tyres.
According to the ad, the Inspira R3 is limited to 100 units and is only available with a 1.8 litre engine manual transmission variant. We’ll bring you the full details and higher resolution images once we receive more information from Proton.
