compare it! Seat Leon Cupra - Road car versus racing car | drive it
We take the standard Leon Cupra road car onto a racing track and compare it to the souped-up racing version.The Leon Cupra is designed to give a high-performance feeling on the roads, with 240 horsepower from a modern two-liter turbo engine. Pure power combines with a lower chassis to make the Leon Cupra almost the same as the racing version in the World Touring Car Championship and the Seat Leon Supercopa. But can it match the racing model?

The double clutch system is new. The gears can change automatically or be
changed manually by paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The top model

Audi's trying to conquer a new market territory with its A7. The luxury

found in a two-door, the comfort of a sedan and the cargo capacity of a
station wagon.Visually, the A7 is dynamic, with a long hood, flowing lines

Mercedes presents two new assistance systems that offer the driver even
more support in borderline situations: the "blind spot assistant" and

inadvertently leaving the lane or approaching another car too closely in a
blind spot. They also intervene. Drive it! shows how.

SEAT is stating its unequivocal commitment to motorsport and to its private
customer teams. The new Leon Cup Racer already gives a very clear
indication of what a SEAT touring car racer might look like, prepared for a
wide range of racing series worldwide. The 330 PS / 243 kW Leon Cup Racer
forms the basis for the development work and test drives to be undertaken
over the coming months. On making its debut at the legendary GTI Treffen in
Reifnitz (Austria), the Leon Cup Racer met with enormous enthusiasm from
SEAT fans. Now, SEAT is presenting the touring car racer at the WTCC
Weekend in Salzburg.
Dr. Matthias Rabe, SEAT Executive Vice-President for Research and
"Motorsport is deeply anchored in our brand; SEAT has more than 40 years of
racing history and, with the Leon Cup Racer, we are now writing the next
chapter for our highly motivated customer teams. The Cup Racer is not a
show model, but the first test car for our development work. The new
generation of the SEAT Leon provides a compelling basis; its sporty
qualities are highly acclaimed by customers and motoring journalists alike.
With the racing version, we are building on the great sporting success of
The Cup Racer, which is based on the five-door Leon and painted in metallic
matte grey with orange accents, cuts a visually stunning figure. It's
incredibly powerful stance on 18-inch racing wheels comes from a track that
is no less than 40 centimetres wider than that of the series-production
The new front end is laid out for optimum aerodynamic efficiency and
maximum airflow to the engine and brake system; while the mighty wheel
arches with their openings on the trailing edge aid the cooling effect on
the four-piston brake system. The sills are heavily flared and, together
with the front spoiler, the smooth under body, the rear diffuser and the
two-phase roof spoiler mounted on a support, achieve maximum down force for
Yet, even in the Cup Racer, the design DNA of the Leon remains fully
intact: the distinctive full-LED headlamps with the highly individual
signature of their daytime running lights have been carried over from the
series-production model, as have the LED rear lights. The roofline contour
is also the same as on the series-production model, just like the
characteristic lines and precise blisters of the side view.
The interior of the Leon Cup Racer is also ready for the track. Systematic
weight reduction and a carefully minimalist approach define the inside of
the car, which is protected by a high-strength roll cage. The bucket seat
with HANS head-protection system also offers optimum safety. It is
upholstered with specially developed leather that is exceptionally good at
regulating moisture. The base form of the series-production cockpit is
retained, although the race car's driver information and controls are
concentrated firmly on the multi-function steering wheel and the
high-resolution TFT display behind it, ensuring that the driver always
maintains maximum control over his racing machine.
The mighty drive in the Leon Cup Racer is supplied by a two-litre,
four-cylinder turbocharged engine. It
boasts a maximum output of 330 PS / 243 kW and maximum torque of 350 Newton
metres. Power transmission to the front axle is handled by a 6-speed DSG
dual-clutch gearbox controlled from the steering wheel and an
electronically controlled differential lock. A special variant of the Cup
Racer for endurance racing can be equipped with a sequential racing
transmission with a shift lever on the centre console and a mechanical
A preliminary price for the Leon Cup Racer has already been defined -- the
version with DSG transmission will cost €70,000 (excl. VAT), while the
endurance version with a sequential transmission and mechanical
differential lock is priced at €95,000 (also excl. VAT).
Jaime Puig, Head of SEAT Sport and responsible for the brand's motorsport
"We expect to be able to offer the Leon Cup Racer to our customer teams as
early as the 2014 season. With the two versions for sprint and endurance
racing, the Cup Racer is ideal for an extremely broad palette of racing
series -- from the ETTC to the VLN Endurance Cup on the Nürburgring, We
can also envisage further developing the Cup Racer to create a WTCC version
with a 1.6-litre engine. After all, we have a great tradition to defend."

We get behind the wheel of this racy track version of the SEAT Leon in this
The SEAT Leon Cup Racer is essentially a sporty version of the SEAT Leon.
It's based on the forthcoming Cupra Leon road car, but the body's 40cm
wider. On the outside, it looks pretty radical, with bulging wheel arches
and a prominent spoiler.
It's the same story on the inside, in fact, there's not much you'd
recognise from the standard Leon. There's the standard safety cage and
low-slung seating position. Meanwhile, there's plenty of controls on the
steering wheel, which will allow you to adjust things like the
differential, radio, and pit lane speed limiter.
The SEAT Leon Cup Racer is powered by a 2.0-litre TFSi engine, which was
designed with customer motor sport in mind. Thanks to the car's radical
aerodynamics and extra width, it's within the forthcoming WTCC regulations.
Overall, it's spectacular to look at and fun to drive, too. If SEAT do
decide to come back to the WTCC at any time in the future then they've got
a readymade contender. All they need to do is switch the engine.
