Proton Satria R3 with SSO Body Kit

At just inside the main gate of Sepang Circuit during the A1 GP inaugural race parked the Proton SSO Satria R3. The car wore the similar color as those running for A1 GP Proton Pro Celebrity Race, with the extra carbon fiber hood. I was there for the A1 GP practice session

The satria is equipped with Yokohama A048 semi slick and has the back seat and panel stripped to reduce weight. Standard seats were swapped with bucket seats and 5 point harness. That was whatever I was able to observed. I believe engine wise there aren’t much that they tinkled with, but I could be wrong.

Spotted the Proton Gen2 R3 driven by Tengku Djan Ley and Gary Lee at the Sepang Circuit while attending the practice session of the inaugural A1 GP race there. This car won the PROTON Hartge Terengganu Tarmac Rally 2005 last May. Never knew a Proton Gen2 could look so good.
