Ok that's the most unimaginative name even for a code name, save the
Koreans. So, looks like an Elise with lots of soundproofing and cabin
necessities. This can only be evident in turn-in/out performance, however
given that us Malaysians barely touch it's skyhigh limits in that
department, we're looking at a pessimistic acceleration of under 6 secs.
Claimed figures are a point of a second under 5. So, we're looking at a
solid figure here. So the price? I don't think many of us will have the
privalege of owning this car, due to the space, FC, reliability, comfort
levels we could attain from somewhere else due to the pursuasion of our
life partners. Spare the lucky ones though....

However I am looking forward to this car, and I certainly hope Proton
won't go over the 140K mark for the full spec, full fledge version due to
the challenges as I've stated above which in turn can boost their sales.

And please give it a Malaysian name, maybe a mystical being from Malay
folklore, or something other countries just don't understand

Dream on....Big Smile.

It was a TM project, and has been shelved. You wont see Proton Ultimate.

Or probably has been produced with Lotus batch, i.e. Lotus Europa.

Really?!?!?! Wow I'm soooooooooo relieved!!!! I just couldn't stand the
thought that proton makes a performance car up to that standard!!!!! Piss
off so many Malaysians and then actually come up with something so
desirable...Playing with people's emotions is definitely kurang ajar ~

Anyways I hope Volkswagen decides not to colloberate with Proton. Can't
stand the idea how cocky Proton will be after that

I wish Proton will only produce car that they can sell. Sport car territory
is a 'no play-play' zone.
