SEAT Leon CUPRA ex­clu­sive edi­tion

The Argus - - MOTORS -

SEAT fans can now get their hands on an ex­clu­sive Leon CUPRA Car­bon Edi­tion – but they will have to be quick.

The lim­ited edi­tion model fea­tures a 2.0 TSI 300PS DSG-auto 4Drive and is packed with a range of ad­di­tional sports, styling and per­for­mance fea­tures. In ad­di­tion to car­bon fi­bre side blades and front and rear dif­fusers, the Mon­soon Grey-only model will be fit­ted with high-per­for­mance Brembo brakes, 19-inch black al­loy wheels and CUPRA bucket seats. The quad rear ex­hausts will also fea­ture the CUPRA logo.

This ex­clu­sive edi­tion will ap­peal to cus­tomers look­ing for su­per-charged styling and per­for­mance is ex­pected to fol­low the suc­cess ear­lier in the year of the lim­ited-run CUPRA R, which quickly sold out.

SEAT is the only com­pany that de­signs, de­vel­ops, man­u­fac­tures and mar­kets cars in Spain. A mem­ber of the Volk­swa­gen Group, the multi­na­tional has its head­quar­ters in Mar­torell (Barcelona), ex­port­ing 80% of its ve­hi­cles, and is present in over 80 coun­tries through a network of 1,700 deal­er­ships. In 2017, SEAT achieved world­wide sales of nearly 470,000 ve­hi­cles.

The SEAT Group em­ploys close to 14,700 pro­fes­sion­als at its three pro­duc­tion cen­tres – Barcelona, El Prat de Llo­bre­gat and Mar­torell, where it man­u­fac­tures the highly suc­cess­ful Ibiza, Leon and Arona. Ad­di­tion­ally, the com­pany pro­duces the Ateca and the Toledo in the Czech Repub­lic, the Al­ham­bra in Por­tu­gal and the Mii in Slo­vakia.

The multi­na­tional has a Tech­ni­cal Cen­tre, which op­er­ates as a knowl­edge hub that brings to­gether 1,000 en­gi­neers who are fo­cussed on de­vel­op­ing in­no­va­tion for Spain’s largest in­dus­trial in­vestor in R&D. SEAT al­ready fea­tures the lat­est con­nec­tiv­ity tech­nol­ogy in its ve­hi­cle range and is cur­rently en­gaged in the com­pany’s global dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion process to pro­mote the mo­bil­ity of the fu­ture.
