few months Ago we knew that the upgrade of the Seat Leon also affect the dynamics of the Seat León Cupra, the series-production model most powerful of the Spanish firm. For the first time the compact Martorell would be available in a variant of all-wheel-drive, although it will only be in the family ST, while the three bodies (SC, 5 door and ST) they would give a power of no less than 300 HP.
These 300 HP make the Seat Leon Cupra in a car more than respectable. To tell the truth, the version Cupra earlier was also, as the 290 HP that erogaba the 2.0 TSI were not exactly a low figure of power. Now, in addition to gaining 10 HP, also achieves 30 Nm of torque extra, going from 350 to 380 Nm. A way to see that the Leon Cupra is a performance car is taking it to the circuits. In this case, will be the Safety Car of the World Superbike Championship.
So just announce the signing of Martorell. Seat and Dorna have come to an agreement sponsorship for the World Superbikes, where the compact sports will become the official car of safety. It will be the first time that a Leon Cupra to perform this function in a competition at the international level. we will Also see billboards in circuits with the presence of the brand Seat.
The Seat Leon Cupra, which is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds, shot by 13 tracks out of the 11 countries in which it develops this championship in the laps of recognition. We just hope, for the health of all the pilots, who should not enter never on the track during a race for any accident of participants. The World Superbikes starts next February 24 in the path australian Phillip Island, where the Seat Leon Cupra Safety Car will make its debut.
