We’ve in the past observed pictures of Proton’s Global Rally Championship contender, the Putra WRC that by no means made to the contest phases, regardless that now we will be able to see the rally automotive up shut and intimately.

A short lived recap – hearsay was once that British racing outfit Prodrive was once commissioned by way of Proton to construct the Putra WRC to contest the 1998 season of the Global Rally Championship, and regardless that the nationwide automaker had pageant revel in and luck within the nationwide championship with the Petronas EON Rally Workforce (PERT), top-flight rallying was once every other sport, and thus Prodrive entered the image.

Given the Putra’s Mitsubishi bones, the Prodrive-built 4G93T can be a herbal have compatibility, and to {that a} six-speed sequential gearbox and four-wheel driveline was once mated. In all probability it was once no marvel that the Putra WRC would endure greater than a passing resemblance to the Subaru Impreza WRC98 racer, as each have been Prodrive builds from a coupe base.

Causes for the Putra WRC mission’s premature death stays conjecture, regardless that now we have now pictures of the auto up shut, and it seems that to be receiving restorative consideration. Take a look at the pictures right here courtesy of Jay’s Pace-graphy.
