The company Seat confirmed the creation of a new separate brand Cupra, under which will be produced sports modifications of models of the Spanish brand. The official premiere of the brand will be held on February 22, and the first cars under the new logo will be presented in early March at the Geneva Motor Show.
The new Cupra emblem will contain the same pattern that the Spanish company registered last year. This logo appeared on the hot-hatchet Leon Cupra R, which became the most powerful serial model in the history of the brand.
Seat Leon Cupra R two-liter 4-cylinder turbo, developing 310 horsepower. The engine is able to work in pairs with a six-speed manual or with a seven-spees automatic transmission with two clutches. The car accelerates from rest to 100 km/h in 5.8 seconds, and its maximum speed is limited to 250 km per hour. The circulation of the novelty was limited to 799 copies.
The next car Seat with the Cupra emblem will be a charged modification of the Seat Ateca crossover. The novelty will be equipped with the same two-liter supercharged engine with a capacity of about 300 horsepower.
Earlier we wrote that 335 hp Seat Leon ST Cupra R may be released in 2018.
