SOTW: SEAT Ibiza Cupra Sport
A spot of cheeky Spanish hot hatch action from Shed this week
For those few years, then, the fastest roadgoing Ibizas had quite a bit of performance car kudos since Kit Car regulations, although they allowed for aero addenda, wheelarch extensions and wider tracks, were essentially a production-based formula. By that logic, you can almost consider this Seat Ibiza Cupra Sport 16v to be a poor man's STi Impreza. Almost.
But there's more than a moderately tenuous motorsport connection and an oh-so-90s paint job to this diminutive hot hatch.
This particular car has been mildly tweaked, with uprated suspension and a stainless-steel cat back exhaust but, as modifications go, these are definitely at the more appropriate end of the spectrum. It's also still visually standard, so nobody is likely to accuse you of anything using the words 'Max' and 'Power'.
