Seat gives Cupra new BTCC-inspired bodykit for 2008
27 February 2008

Seat is updating its range-topping 276bhp Cupra hatch by offering a new £1000 bodykit which can be retro-fitted or ordered with the car.The 'k1' kit takes styling cues from the Seat Cupra BTCC car, adding large air intakes at the front and back, centrally mounted exhaust and more pronounced rear spoiler. Seat has also reduced the price of the Cupra by £200 to £19,495 so the full k1 model will set you back £20,496.The money you save on the reduced list price could be spent on another new Cupra option – black or white 18-inch alloys, which cost £205. There's no denying that the Cupra is one of the best, and fastest, hot hatches out there. We'll leave judgement on the styling kit to you.

Our Verdict

Seat Leon 5dr hatch

Seat's third-generation Leon is attractive and capable, but it can't quite reach the benchmark set by the imperious Volkswagen Golf

Since when did the leon cupra have 276bhp?

Standard one has 240. Only one close to this would either be remapped or the special edition "Copa" sold on the continent somewhere.

I am not too sure................ Car looks great, don't get me wrong, but the wheels are too small and look like biscuit tin lids, and the central exhaust looks like some sort of hideous hemorroid.........................

I think that the twin exhaust system on the Sport Reference models should have been used and it would look less like it's arse has piles.........
