Will give a future MX-5 a run for its money.
When you’re an intern working for a major carmaker (Seat is part of the VW Group before you start belittling the Spanish firm), making an impression has got to be a top priority. And with his Roadster concept, Seat intern David Cava has certainly achieved that goal. “Designed with character and fun to drive in mind,” the budding car designer was targeting the MX-5 with his creation, which is distinguished by its dynamic styling, carbon-fiber body parts, and a windshield that flows from the hood of the car.
At the rear, a prominent diffuser combines with a centrally-positioned trapezoidal exhaust, while power comes from a hybrid powertrain, which pairs a 200-hp 1.4 TSI unit with an electric motor for a total output of 240 hp. At just 960 kg with a 50:50 weight distribution, the design concept is a proper driver’s car.
