A staff at Proton said that “we already know” what model is parked out there. Considering the fact that the way it was parked there and the media was conveniently nearby, its too easy to guess that Proton did this on purpose to tease the media about the upcoming Proton Persona R.

The supposed replacement for the ever popular Persona model is stated to be replaced in 2012, featuring new 6 speed manual gearbox from Getrag and a CVT transmission from Punch. An turbocharged Campro engine will be also be used and the rear multilink suspension will be retained. Proton stated it as their first global car to sell worldwide. If all goes well, this could be Proton’s most important model to date. We will be sure to share it out if there any exclusive news on the new Persona R!
