Proton Inspira R3 - open for booking at RM78,999

Proton Inspira R3 is now open for booking, and it is limited to 100 units only. The R3-ed Inspira is available only as 1.8l engine with 5 speed manual transmission. The price remain unchanged at RM78,999. Could this be a ploy to clear the unsellable 1.8 litre with manual transmission? However, looking at the bright side, a manual geared is the proper R3 version, so it is perhaps justifiable after all to be offered in this single variant, the sole manual among Inspira range.

R3 touch include new skirting all around, ducktail spoiler (from Inspira 2.0?, no photo from the rear yet so the jury is still out), 18" x 7.5" Advanti Racing M8501 rims wrapped in 225/40 R18 Yokohama AR01 and a standard engine tune. These items are estimated to be RM9,000 worth.

Bookings open now and run till the end of December, or until 100 units are sold out. Colour choice are Solid White, Genetic Silver, Tranquility Black and Plum Red with certain units only for certain color. So if you fancy a racy looking Inspira, head to your nearest Proton dealer now.
