A few months ago we learned that the updating of the Seat Leon also affect the dynamics of the Seat León Cupra, the model of the most powerful production of the Spanish firm. For the first time the compact Martorell would be available in a four-wheel variant, although it will only be in the ST family, while the three bodies (SC, 5 doors and ST) would deliver an output of no less than 300 HP.
These 300 HP make the Seat León Cupra one car more than respectable. Indeed, the previous Cupra version was, already the 290 HP which erogaba the 2.0 TSI were not precisely a low turnover of power. Now, in addition to winning 10 HP, also-get extra 30 Nm of torque, going from 350 to 380 Nm. A way to see that the León Cupra is a high-performance car is bringing him to the circuits. In this case, it will be the Safety Car for the Championship of the world of Superbike.
So it has just announce the signing of Martorell. Seat and Dorna have reached an agreement of sponsorship for the Superbikes world, where the compact sports will be as the official safety car. It will be the first time that a León Cupra perform this function in a competition at the international level. We also look at billboards in circuits with the presence of the Seat brand.
The León Seat Cupra, which is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds, shot by the 13 tracks of the 11 countries in which develops this Championship in turns of recognition. Only hope, for the health of all pilots, who should not enter never on track during a race by some accident of the participants. The World Superbike starts on Feb. 24 in the Australian path of Phillip Island, where the Seat Leon Cupra Safety Car will make its debut.
