Proton has unveiled the new Proton Suprima S Super Premium at the Proton Sales Carnival in Melaka today. The new variant is now the range-topper of the Proton Suprima range, positioned above the Executive and Premium models.

During the Suprima S launch in August last year, Proton deputy CEO Datuk Lukman Ibrahim had intimated that plans for a R3 performance version (as well as a manual variant) were in the pipeline.

The Proton Suprima S Super Premium isn’t quite that, but has some R3 elements – the variant adds on an R3 bodykit, which includes a revised rear bumper finishing, front and side skirts, as well as R3 emblems on the side skirts. You also get 17-inch lightweight alloy wheels. The car is available in only two colours – Fire Red and Solid White.

The Suprima S Super Premium is priced at RM87,929, which is an RM8,350 premium over the next step down in the Suprima range, in this case the Suprima S Premium.
