Seat has recently announced its plans to introduce the Leon Cup Racer later on this month, during the 2013 Worthersee.
After showing us the Seat Leon Trophy in its upgraded version, the Spanish based automaker is now placing another model into the spotlights, the Leon Cup Racer. According to the car manufacturer, the Seat Leon Cup Racer is based on the five-door version of the Leon and it will be offered to customer teams for the 2014 season. The model in question is finished in a metallic matte grey paint with orange accents and it has wider tracks, muscular wheel arches, roof spoiler, a smooth underbody and 18-inch racing wheels.
The cabin has a minimalistic configuration in order to save weight and it has been fitted with bucket seats, with a roll cage, with a TFT display and a multi-function steering wheel, amongst others. The Seat Leon Cup Racer is powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, which is producing a total output of 330 HP (243 kW) and it has a peak torque of 350 Nm (258 lb-ft), sent to the front-wheel drive, through a six-speed DSG and an electronically-controlled differential lock. The model equipped with the DSG will start at 70,000 EUR, while more extreme versions will begin at 95,000 EUR, without VAT.
