All new 306bhp Leon Cupra R

All new 306bhp Leon Cupra RThe Cupra R doesn’t vary too much on the outside, with the most notable addition being a unique copper-effect finish on the alloy wheels and door mirrors. Other changes include more carbon fibre trim and more aggressive bumpers and side skirts.

SEAT is experiencing some of its best times as a company. In the last four years, it has achieved growth of 30%; last year it sold almost 410,000 units and made operating profits of 143 million euros, the company’s best ever results. So far in 2017, in the first eight months of the year, SEAT has sold more than 310,000 cars, which represents an increase of more than 13% compared to the same period last year. This is the best result since 2001.

Further carbonfibre and copper details can be found on the inside, along with a steering wheel and gearstick surround coated in because racecar Alcantara. On the subject of the gearstick, it’s worth noting the manual version is actually more powerful – buy the DSG automatic, and you’ll have to settle for ‘just’ 296bhp.

SEAT says that 799 Leon Cupra Rs will be made, though there is no word yet on UK availability or pricing – that should follow soon. Do you think this car warrants the return of the Cupra R badge? Would you have one over a Civic Type R? What kind of Nurburgring lap time will be claimed for this Leon? Over to you!
