SEAT Leon Cup Racer video review

17 Dec, 2013 2:41pm

In this video review we get behind the wheel of a racy track version of the SEAT Leon - the Cup Racer

The SEAT Leon Cup Racer is essentially a sporty version of the SEAT Leon. It's based on the forthcoming Cupra Leon road car, but the body's 40cm wider. On the outside, it looks pretty radical, with bulging wheel arches and a prominent spoiler.

It's the same story on the inside, in fact, there's not much you'd recognise from the standard Leon. There's the standard safety cage and low-slung seating position. Meanwhile, there's plenty of controls on the steering wheel, which will allow you to adjust things like the differential, radio, and pit lane speed limiter.

The SEAT Leon Cup Racer is powered by a 2.0-litre TFSi engine, which was designed with customer motor sport in mind. Thanks to the car's radical aerodynamics and extra width, it's within the forthcoming WTCC regulations.

Overall, it's spectacular to look at and fun to drive, too. If SEAT do decide to come back to the WTCC at any time in the future then they've got a readymade contender. All they need to do is switch the engine.

Will the pit lane button work at my local Tesco Fueling station ? This could be a decider if i buy one or not.

Cool. I hope all that marketing effort transforms into a street version with 330 HP 4WD.
