- Leon CUPRA R, the most powerful model ever produced by SEAT
The new SEAT Leon CUPRA R will undoubtedly be drawing the attendees attention at the Spanish brand stand at the IAA 2017. SEAT’s most powerful road car in history will also be its most exclusive, owing to the fact that it will be limited to 799 units. The new SEAT Leon CUPRA R will be available with manual gearbox (310 PS) and DSG (300 PS), with six speeds and front wheel drive. There are some stand-out details on the bodywork such as exclusive carbon fiber details on the front and rear spoilers, side skirts and rear diffuser, wing mirrors in copper, as well as the rims, with the wheel arches and the front area getting a new, more powerful design around the air intakes. The SEAT Leon CUPRA R will be available at the end of 2017 and the 799 lucky owners will be able to enjoy an interior that is also been given the carbon fiber and copper treatment, as well as the steering wheel and the gearstick upholstered in Alcantara®. There will be three colors to choose from; Midnight Black, Pyrenees Grey (neither with extra cost) and the exclusive Matte Grey.
The new Leon CUPRA R also receives a few extras. On the front axle, the camber has been modified and the adaptive suspension DCC (Dynamic Chassis Control), not forgetting the Brembo brakes. There is a new exhaust system too. So sportier, yes, but above all else a unique and unrepeatable model, reserved for 799 of the brands most demanding
