Seat Reveals Leon Cup Racer


Seat Leon takes to the track for the Worthersee gathering.

This year’s Worthersee gathering of Volkswagen Group hot-hatch enthusiasts is approaching. The VW division itself is planning some sort of special-edition GTI, Audi has already revealed its TT Ultra Quattro concept, and now Seat has joined in with the racecar you see here. Based on the new Leon, the Cup Racer prototype demonstrates Seat’s latest track racer. It’s powered by a 2.0-liter turbo four with 330 hp, driving the front wheels through a six-speed dual-clutch gearbox and an electronic differential.

The lightweight package encompasses an aggressive aero package, with gaping intakes, blistered wheel arches, wide side sills, a flat underbody, a competition-spec diffuser and a two-phase rear wing. The widened track houses 18-inch wheels, and the entire thing is painted in metallic matte grey with orange accents. Seat is already taking orders from privateer racing teams at €70,000 for the touring version and €95,000 for the endurance racer (upgraded with mechanical diff and sequential gearbox). Skoda is also expected reveal its Rapid Sport concept for Worthersee in the coming days, so watch this space.
