First unveiled at the Malaysia Autoshow 2023 back in May, pricing for the Proton X50 R3 20th Anniversary Edition has just been revealed. Offered as an accessories package, the R3 treatment is exclusive to the Flagship variant of the hugely popular B-segment SUV, and only 200 units are available.
Priced at RM12,000 (fitting included), the R3 accessories package is an add-on for the RM113,300 Flagship X50 in Jet Grey. The package includes a satin black vinyl wrap, R3 aerokit (front, rear, and side skirts), bonnet stripe, rear roof spoiler, as well as 18-inch R3 lightweight alloy wheels.

The interior gets the R3 treatment too: there’s the R3 interior dash nameplate, R3 headrest embroidery for the driver and front passenger seats, R3-branded carpet mats, and even Proton’s own window tint.
“As the company celebrates its 40th anniversary in 2023, it is a timely opportunity for Proton to acknowledge some of our other milestones.
