The open-top two-seater roadster is largely the same as the series-production model up to the shoulder line. It sports a low wrap-around windscreen and unique rear end. The concept is finished in a bright New Orange paint job and rolls on 18-inch alloy wheels.

Inside, the donor car’s interior is carried over but occupants sit 70mm lower in low-slung Alcantara racing bucket seats compare to the standard model. The steering wheel is clad in pure aniline leather that is coloured all the way through, without a layer of pigment, making it “open-pored, very supple and wonderful to the touch.”

Likewise, the Ibiza Cupra’s 1.4 TSI engine delivering 132kW (180HP) and 250Nm is carried over. It is connected to a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission enabling the one-off roadster to sprint from 0-100km/h in around 7 seconds.
