It is a well-known fact that the Sultan of Johor has tons of cars in his collection such as Bugatti Veyron, Jaguar XJ220 and the full-chrome Lamborghini Murcielago LP640. He recently added two more cars into his collection but instead of the usual exotic flavours, this time around the Sultan opts for a homemade model – the Proton Satria Neo.
That being said, they are not just any ordinary Satria Neo as well. In fact, both cars were fitted with the upcoming Proton R3 Supercharger Kit on their 1.6 Campro CPS engines. The kit itself is made of several components which include a Sprintex supercharger that is paired together with a R3-tuned performance ECU and exhaust system.
Apart from the supercharger kit and custom colorways, both Satria Neos are also equipped with R3 bodykit, AP Racing front brakes, R3-specified Tein suspensions, R3 lightweight rims that are draped with Continental tyres, Blaupunkt GPS-entertainment system, and customized leather interior with Recaro seats.
Even though the existence of the Proton R3 Supercharger Kit has been known for quite some time, Sultan of Johor’s Satria Neo R3s are the first such cars to be equipped with the kit commercially. Proton R3 has yet to reveal any release date or pricing for it although the outfit has confirmed that members of the public will be able to get their hands on the kit very soon.
Meanwhile, we personally had seen the concept version of the kit during the launch of Proton Satria Neo R3 last November. Click on the Read More link below for more photos.
