Drive the Extreme indeed! That's the official brochure in the thumbnail, and THIS IS IT!!

Many of you asked for it too, and after weeks of waiting, I finally got my hands on the the incredible Proton Satria GTI 1.8! Born in 1998, I bought one of the first ones when it came out because I was blown away by it. It remains the LAST new car I ever bought.

A proper, proper hot-hatch from Proton, it raised the bar for all (then) new hot-hatches, and it's still an incredible car two decades on. Finding one in original condition like this is almost impossible these days, and proof of just how good it is, is the fact that they're still being stolen!

Proton got it right with the first try when it comes to this car, and with no real successor, it's definitely what we car guys would call a 'unicorn'. If you have one like this, I salute you. Hold on to it and keep it as original as possible :)

Specs that matter:
Engine: 4-cyl,4G93P, MPi, DOHC,16-valve
Max power: 138bhp @6000rpm
Max torque: 164Nm @ 5500rpm
Top speed: 210kmh
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Kerb weight: 1130kg

  • Izzat Fauzi Mustafa
    Izzat Fauzi Mustafa il y a 6 jours Too many reckless "boys" owning Satria GTI back when it was still new and not preserving it to their original conditions. Same fate goes with Putra, another unicorn by Proton.
  • Chris Wee
    Chris Wee il y a 6 jours Love the Putra too, the only real Coupe from Proton 😃👍🏾
  • Izzat Fauzi Mustafa
    Izzat Fauzi Mustafa il y a 6 jours @Chris Wee How about the plain-Jane variants of Satria (1.3, 1.5 and 1.6-litre models)? Are they considered to be unicorns as well?
  • Chris Wee
    Chris Wee il y a 6 jours @Izzat Fauzi Mustafa hmm, not really bud, those are quite easy to find in original condition, unlike this car, and there are also still many on the road, easily spotted 🙏🏽😊
  • Izzat Fauzi Mustafa
    Izzat Fauzi Mustafa il y a 6 jours @Chris Wee The non-sport variants of Satria that I always see in my hometown are mostly modded ones. It will be hard-pressed to find Satrias that still have factory stock appearances on the road.
  • Chris Wee
    Chris Wee il y a 6 jours @Izzat Fauzi Mustafa I've actually shortlisted quite a few that I found on Mudah, gotta say I'm tempted.... even the 1.3 Satria was pretty quick, and I remember driving a 1.6 that was very, very quick! That said though, while the others aren't bad at all, there is only one GTI when it comes to the Satria, and that's what makes it special imho 😊
  • funnykenji
    funnykenji il y a 5 jours This is one of my first favorite proton during my childhood
  • Chris Wee
    Chris Wee il y a 5 jours @funnykenji it's STILL my favourite Proton 😁
  • Izzat Fauzi Mustafa
    Izzat Fauzi Mustafa il y a 4 jours @funnykenji Very sporty and suitable for bedroom poster
  • Ramadan Yusof
    Ramadan Yusof il y a 1 jour I hope Proton can produce car like this in the future.
  • Chris Wee
    Chris Wee il y a 1 jour I do too!! The next could be a hotter Iriz actually, maybe 🙏🏽😊
  • Dunkirk Donuts
    Dunkirk Donuts il y a 5 jours (modifié) If you buy original GTI, lock it in the dungeon, hired a jaga, polis, Special Force and put 10 guard dogs. This thing orang suka curi...
  • Chris Wee
    Chris Wee il y a 5 jours HAHAHAHAHA!! A bit extreme but I get you, yeah, this car is 'hot' stuff 😉
  • NQ
    NQ il y a 5 jours I still remember this car was so feared by BMW n Merc. This car is the original street race-car in Malaysia. No issue on conners untill the rich kids of ttdi got their hands on these bad boys.
  • Chris Wee
    Chris Wee il y a 5 jours Hahahaha!! Yup, it was quite THE car when it first appeared, every boy-racer wanted one 😁😁😁🙏🏽👍🏾
  • Syawal Hamidi
    Syawal Hamidi il y a 3 jours I was born in the wrong generation, I guess? I'm one of the 2000s kids, but interested in this car...
  • Chris Wee
    Chris Wee il y a 3 jours If u can find one in this condition, and have the means to buy it, consider it seriously, then I'll welcome u to my generation 👍🏾🙏🏽😁
  • Saiful Hamdan

  • Rev Limiter
    Rev Limiter il y a 2 jours (modifié) I still remember those days when I first got into a Proton Satria GTI, 1st gear pedal to the metal 7200 rpm up to second and third, braked and took it into bends, I was thrilled !!!
  • Chris Wee
    Chris Wee il y a 1 jour Oh yes, that sounds familiar!! Great stuff! I remember absolutely hooning mine up Fraser's Hill and wondering when the car was gonna break traction and fly into a ravine, but it never did. Really amazing car this 👍🏾😁
  • yangerek deone
    yangerek deone il y a 6 jours This is the ' real and true Proton' who says Protom cant make good fun car

  • yangerek deone
    yangerek deone il y a 5 jours @Chris Wee but thats the old Proton bro they throw everything including spanner and stuff into what they believe they could dp. Nowadasys its Geely underneath it all
  • Chris Wee
    Chris Wee il y a 5 jours @yangerek deone I'm still hoping there's at least one coming, possibly a hot variant of the Iriz 🤞🏾😊

    kamsaini kamaludin il y a 6 jours (modifié) If you let a blind man hear thru this video plus a little bit of editing here and there, minus the words Car, Proton and Satria. Probably the guy might be thinking Chris is having sex with all those Ahh...Huhhh....and the way he described the size of the handbrake.😂 Peace! Good job Chris, looking forward to yr next video.

  • Steward Mathias
    Steward Mathias il y a 6 jours (modifié) I found a very interesting Satria Gti at mudah.my yesterday, the price is mindblowingly expensive. It's on sale for RM48,000! You might want to check that out Chris!
  • Chris Wee
    Chris Wee il y a 6 jours Hahahaha!! Poison game is strong with this car!! I'll check it out, but 48k is wayyy outta my budget for a cash buy bro 😁😁😁
  • SpicyChiLL
    SpicyChiLL il y a 5 jours I remember that day when I was young, my father went to proton showroom for buying a car, which is my father first car. First time seen this gorgeous girl I be thinking , damn why this girl so much wonderful, I told my father to buy this car but too bad, in that day my father only can own a proton wira.
  • Chris Wee

    Fong Wei Tze il y a 6 jours Now that you have reviewed one of the rare Satria's,do you consider to review the Satria Neo Lotus Racing Edition.It is also very rare as there are only 25 of them produced.
  • Chris Wee
    Chris Wee il y a 6 jours If I could get my hands on one, why not indeed. But that's as rare as a unicorn with 2 horns instead of 1 🤭 Thanks for watching and the suggestion!!🙏🏽👍🏾😊
