Release in August this year

Seat is testing these days in northern Scandinavia two new different sporty versions of the Leon model range. One is a Leon with a sporty body kit making it look like a Cupra, the other one is a prototype with a dark body paint for disguise, which is the upcoming new Cupra R.

The new Cupra ‘R is scheduled for release in August this year. These photos are showing for the first time a prototype revealing its aggressive styling. The car has very large air intakes in the front skirt and a big exhaust pipe placed on the left of the rear skirt. Inside the new Cupra will be offering a very sporty design like i.e. a Golf GTI, from which – according to rumours - the Cupra might also borrow its engine. It is a 2.0 litre FSI Turbo four cylinder motor and said to deliver 220 HP in the Cupra.

Furthermore the prototype is equipped with bigger alloy wheels and large red Brembo-disc brake
