SEAT's new 'Sub8 Performance Pack' for the Leon Cupra 280 marks record-breaking Nurburgring run and is on sale now for £2,025

Following a UK debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, SEAT has revealed its ‘Sub8 Performance Pack’ for the Leon Cupra 280 can be had for £2,025. 

Fitted to the flagship Leon that lapped the Nurburgring in under eight minutes – the first front-wheel drive car to achieve this feat – the package adds beefier brakes, bespoke 19-inch alloys available in either black or orange, and body-coloured side skirts.

For the full track experience, semi-slick Michelin tyres also used on the record-breaking run can be had for £460, with SEAT’s Cupra bucket seats on sale now as well, priced at £1,250. Designed to be figure hugging, these special, embossed front seats feature a one-piece headrest and are trimmed in black Alcantara with simil leather bolsters and white accents.

SEAT has also taken the opportunity to launch its new colour packs for the Leon Cupra 280. Two shades will be available initially, Black-Line and White-Line, with Orange-Line set to join the line-up in December. For £500, these add 19-inch Cupra alloys, door mirrors, Cupra bootlid lettering and front grille details all picked out in the chosen paint scheme.
