MOTORING: The GTi that's quick off the mark in the showrooms too; DRIVE TIME.

DESPITE consumer concern over new car pricing, the progress of Proton's recently launched GTi model is proving just as rapid through the showroom as it is around the bends.

More than 150 have already been snapped up by customers eager to experience the thrills of the car which has Lotus ride and handling characteristics, plus natty styling and exclusivity.

Proton is hoping for 400 sales of the GTi this year - a target which seems easily attainable.

The Malaysian pocket-rocket has already picked up top awards from What Car? and is also highly rated by BBC TV's Top Gear team.

The hot hatch costs pounds 14,344 on the road and comes with three years free servicing.
