View Thread: New SEAT León Cupra R: Maximum sportiness


kak
Following the sales success of the 210 hp León Cupra R, SEAT is upping the ante with a new and even more potent 225 hp version of the model. The latest León Cupra R is powered by a new version of 1.8 20VT engine delivering 15 hp more than the model it replaces. It makes the new León Cupra R the sportiest, fastest and most powerful production model in the history of SEAT. SEAT launched the 210 hp León Cupra R in April 2002 with a first year sales forecast of 850 units. By the end of 2002, however, SEAT Sport had had to increase its production capacity to satisfy demand and had built more than 1,550 examples with firm orders for another 500. These figures show an 84 per cent increase over the initial forecast, demonstrating a strong acceptance of SEAT's high performance products.

I'm doing whatever I can to get my hands on that car! :)

Btw; I'm testing a Skoda Octavia RS in a month or so.

i test the 210 version on the last Mexico Auto show... pretty badass.... but the handling could be a little better.
