Full Version: Proton Satria GTi
Dieselstation Car Forums > The Cool Wall > Legacy Cool Wall > Cool
So Top Gear magazine Malaysia says this is the best Proton ever produced. And I agreed. So what do you guys think? It doesn't look very cool, but it's not bad looking either.

From Wiki:
The Satria was also released as a sports GTi model with a 105 kW (141 hp) of power from its 1.8-litre Mitsubishi adopted the 4G93p engine (originally found in the Mitsubishi Lancer GTI) The Satria GTi model was revised by Lotus in terms of engine and handling. According to dyno chart, standard Gti can produce 155 bhp (116 kW) on wheel.

A new body kit was also adopted for the GTi for better aerodynamics by involvement of Lotus. This is the best Satria model ever made and the fastest car ever produced by Proton so far.
Best car ever made in Malaysia period. Lotus-tuned handling meant meant this was the real deal. I've seen it in person and it definitely looked the part too. It's probably one of the most underrated hot-hatches of all time. Usually I'd give it an uncool just for being a Proton, but that little "Handling by Lotus" badge on the back, mated with real ability, and aggressive looks means I'm giving a solid cool.
If I recall, this was a JWRC-type rally car at one point. I guess I'll give it a cool.
My neighbor owns one. It corners really well, so I really like this car.
I give it a cool. It's a kind of funky hot hatch that I haven't seen before and sounds pretty good.
Sorry guys but that rear wing destroys all of the coolness it may have had. Boyracer uncool.

You took the words right outta my mouth. Not litterally. tongue.gif
I knew a hot chick who owned one, so that makes it cool for me.

Like the girl, the handling was good too, unlike her though the looks and performance weren't so good!
Are you kidding me? The Satria GTi is the only Proton with good handling and performance so that makes it a cool car. And a hot chick owning a car doesn't make it cool for me.
I've already seen a few down here in Adelaide. One even had two big cannons at the back...must be popular amongst the ricers.
