Performance should be impressive, with 261bhp and 258lb ft of torque on tap from 2500rpm.
A more sensible picture
Seat claims 0-62mph in 6.2secs and a top speed of 155mph, figures that are absolutely on the money for a car chasing after the scalp of the Scirocco R or Megane Renaultsport 250.
Mind you, given that the R sports an extra 37lb ft over the already torque-steery Leon Cupra you can probably expect a side-order of wriggly steering wheel with your bright yellow hot hatch (should you choose the new ‘Tribu’ metallic yellow).

Like it - beautifully styled. Can definately see buying one in a few years time once depreciation knocks its price down.

I have had a few hot seats in the past (Leon FR and Ibiza Cupra) but no way would I pay 25K for that. Interior is awful and it just looks wrong. The old leon was awesome. ...still miss mine. You could pick up 1 year old Audi S3, new Golf GTI and Focus RS for that price. Not to mention cars such as a Z4M! Crazy pricing by SEAT, they wont sell many!

Hottest Seat ever??
Does anyone remember a Seat special back in the 90's. All I can remember is that it cost some ridiculous amount (40K), I can't for the life of me remember it's name and or find any pictures on it. Maybe I need to dig out all my old mags.....

i have to admit my stupidity here, i came into this thread expect a recaro on fire or something daft. Not another variant of a car which has too many variants.
