Limited run of Proton Satria Neo supercharged coming?

Together with the Proton Preve R3 kits and the rest of R3 enhancement for Proton range, also on display at Plaza Angsana is the Proton Satria Neo S2000 Concept. Bearing the same shade as the Proton dominant rally machine, S2000 Concept is powered by the supercharged Campro lump, as indicated on the tailgate badging on the car. According to the source close to the company production, there was a plan to offer a limited run of 200 units of the supercharged Neo as a commemorative to the rally success in the recent years. Could this be the preview of such model?

Back in April last year, some media did uncovered the Proton Satria Neo supercharged project. With the Sprintex supercharger unit mounted on the Campro unit, the total tally is 180bhp and 200Nm. Will it ever produced? Such a late enhancement to a model approaching its end of life cycle.....
