Quite simply, Proton/bahar dont own the official Lotus F1 brand. Its all about pride, Proton cant admit they made a mistake when they bought lotus group and hence no deal with Hunt .. now they resort to pretending they are the 'real' Lotus F1. spraying gold/black and putting a huge badge on another car aint fooling no one.

First mistake Proton made was buying Group Lotus without reading the fine print, only realising they didn't get Team Lotus as part of the deal later on.

Second mistake Proton made was hiring this 2 bit t-shirt salesman called Bahar. Didn't he leave Ferrari and Redbull on bad terms? Why on earth would a car company hire a 2 bit t-shirt salesman as the CEO of it's sports car division? There must be a lot of people in Proton with more ego than brains.
