Seat Ibiza SC Trophy and Leon Supercopa at Wörthersee

Submitted by on May 16, 2012 – 5:04 pmNo Comment

Seat will be displaying two race-spec models at this week’s 2012 Wörthersee Tour in Austria.

The first one is the new Ibiza SC Trophy which is now based on the Spanish firm’s refreshed supermini and features a 1.4-liter turbocharged TSI petrol unit with 178hp (180PS) under its hood. A 7-speed dual clutch DSG transmission transfers power to the front wheels through a locking differential.

Among other modifications, Seat’s motorsport division had added protection plates under the engine bay, more powerful brakes, a race-spec suspension and 18-inch lightweight alloy wheels wrapped in competition tires. Inside, you will find a roll cage, bucket seats and a race-spec digital instrument panel.

Priced at €31,500 (US$40,500) excluding VAT, the Ibiza SC Trophy is seen as an ideal starter car for amateur racers.

Seat’s next offering is the 250km/h (155mph) Leon Supercopa that targets professional racers. The five-door model sports a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-pot with 296hp (300PS) from the production Leon Cupra R, which is linked to a six-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission driving the front wheels through a limited slip differential.

The Leon Supercopa comes equipped with all the usual goods you expect to find in a race car such as a body-hugging bucket seat, a full roll cage and a removable steering wheel. In Europe, prices start at €63,000 (US$81,000), not including VAT.
