Seat Leon Cup Racer heading to Wörthersee

Seat has unveiled the new Leon Cup race car, which will be offered to customers in ‘ready-to-race’ form. The Leon Cup Racer will make a public appearance at Wörthersee this month.

Based on the five-door Leon, the racer is powered by Audi’s EA888 turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine developing 243 kW and 350 Nm of torque. Drive is channeled to the front wheels through a six-speed twin-clutch gearbox and an electronic differential lock. A sequential six-speed gearbox with centre-mounted shifter is also available in Endurance guise.

Significant chassis modifications transform the Leon into a track-worthy machine with wider tracks, flared sills and wheel arches, a two-phase roof spoiler and a smooth underbody. Inside, it’s all serious business too with standard items include HANS equipped racing bucket seats, roll cage, full carbon fibre fitouts and a multi-function racing steering wheel.

The Seat Leon Cup Racer has a starting price of 70,000 Euros for the DSG equipped model while the more hardcore Endurance version starts at 95,000 Euros.
