210bhp for £16,995

Wed, 17 Jul 2002
SEAT has announced a lower than expected price of £16,995 for its 210bhp Leon Cupra R, and deliveries have already begun.

The hand-built front-drive Cupra R offers 147mph performance with 0-60 in 6.9 seconds. Modifications over and above the standard 180bhp Cupra R include twin force fed intercoolers, 18” alloy wheels, four-pot Brembo front brake callipers, faster steering at 2.5 turns lock to lock and SEAT’s Agile Chassis Concept (ACC) of special spring and damper rates and revised suspension geometry. ABS with EBA and TCS remain standard. And the ESP remains switchable.

Though £1,000 more than the 200bhp Honda Civic Type R, the Cupra R comes with standard climate control (a/c is £950 extra on the Honda). Also standard are a six-speed box, leather steering wheel, sports seats and a six stack CD player.

Colours are Ovni Yellow, Flash Red, or Ebony Black. Warranty is 3 years or 60,000 miles on the mechanicals; 12 years on the body.
