The .. wait what? That’s right folks, it’s the Jebat Concept version of the regular Proton Inspira.
In case you’re not up to date on your knowledge of the Proton Inspira you should check this out.
Basically, the Proton Inspira is a Malaysian attempt at dodging taxes in re-badging a regular Mitsubishi Lancer.
Yeah but the Proton Inspira’s Jebat Concept is different. It is actually the Malaysian equivalent of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. This means that it’s a hot version of the Inspira.
Unlike the Evo, the Proton Inspira’s hot version isn’t yet confirmed as getting the brilliant four wheel drive system. As a consolation, the Malaysians do offer the same turbocharged 4 cylinder MiVEC engine you get in the Lancer Evo.
In the Jebat Concept, this particular turbo four pot will develop 240 horsepower and 343 Nm of torque at its peak.This means that the Proton Inspira Jebat Concept can shift its weight around quite fast but it won’t match the times of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo.
The figures are still pretty impressive as the Proton Inspira Jebat Concept can hit 62mph from a stand still in 5.6 seconds and it can keep on accelerating to 144 mph.
