Seat's New Leon Cupra R Limited To 799 Cars

Seat's New Leon Cupra R Limited To 799 Cars”

As this is a limited-run vehicle (just 799 will be built), SEAT has been able to indulge its wilder side with the Leon Cupra R. The first thing to strike you is the amount of orange (SEAT calls it copper) trim present on the auto, from the wing mirror caps and alloy wheels through to the air intake edges and SEAT badge on the front.

First we had the facelifted SEAT Leon, then the Leon Cupra got a power boost from 286 to 296bhp. Just 799 being built.

For the uninitiated, the Seat Leon Cupra is essentially the Spanish cousin of the fabled Volkswagen Golf GTi - both the cars are based on the same platform and share the same set of engines.

Whether or not SEAt are going to hive off the Cupra label in to a sub-brand or not, there's a new Cupra on the block adding extra oomph to the already slightly bonkers Leon Cupra 300 - the new SEAT Leon Cupra R.

In six-speed manual form the unit produces 228kW, while in six-speed dual-clutch auto form it generates 221kW.

Cupra plus copper new Seat Leon Cupra R revealed

Those opting for the DSG version, though, won't receive those extra 10 ponies. That's because the automatic Cupra R's power output is same as the Cupra 300. Expect it to cost more than a new Leon Cupra, obviously. The wheels are fitted with Brembo brakes. There's also an entirely new instrument cluster.

If you thought the SEAT Leon Cupra was quick, wait until you get a load of this thing. The wheel arches are flared, the front bumper is more aggressive with larger intakes and carbon-fibre detailing.

Images of the interior are missing, but the company says, the upholstery of the steering wheel cover and shift lever are made of leather, and the decoration of the interior used parts from copper and carbon fibre.

For those who want something other than the matte grey exterior paintjob, you can also have a Midnight Black or Pyrenees Grey.
