SEAT is rewarding customers who take delivery of a Leon Cupra R before 30 June 2005 with an exciting, money-can’t-buy motorsport package. The SEAT Sport Experience includes professional tuition at a track day, two tickets to a round of the British Touring Car Championship with VIP hospitality and two SEAT race jackets to proudly demonstrate where their support lies.
The track day, which will take place at prodrivelive in Warwickshire, is designed to test existing driving skills, learn new ones and, most importantly, to have some fun. SEAT provides the cars, so there’s no need for owners to thrash their own brand new Cupra R, and the expert tuition comes from professional race instructors and drivers familiar from SEAT Sports race activities. This half-day experience will include auto tests, control tests, ABS tests and circuit driving skills, followed by a high-speed passenger ride with one of the SEAT Sport racing drivers.
New Cupra R owners will also receive tickets and VIP hospitality for themselves and a friend at one of six British Touring Car Championship rounds between June and September. Here they can witness the considerable racing talents of SEAT Sport’s three drivers, Jason Plato, James Pickford and Luke Hines, in action as they pursue the BTCC title in SEAT Sport UK’s second race season. They can also observe the antics of the SEAT Cupra Championship drivers as they battle it out against each other in race-going versions of the very same Leon Cupra R that they have just purchased.
The Leon Cupra R is the most sporty car in the SEAT range and truly encompasses the brand claim, "auto emoción". Its 1.8 litre 20-valve turbocharged 225PS engine and close ratio six-speed gearbox power it to a top speed of 150 mph and acceleration from 0-62 in under seven seconds. This power and performance is wrapped up in a handsome 5-door hatch with sports suspension, deep bumpers, spoilers and 18 inch alloy wheels and Brembo brakes. The interior provides a seductive mix of style, comfort and sport with black upholstery and red trim throughout, sports seats, climate control, electric windows and radio CD player. It is priced at £18,050 on the road and includes VAT, delivery, 12 months road fund licence and first registration fee, 3 years/60000 miles mechanical warranty, 12 years anti-perforation warranty, 2 years SEAT assistance including European cover and, until 30 June 2005, the SEAT Sport Experience package.Published 12 February 2005
