The Leon Cup Racer is an track car designed to underscore the company’s commitment to customer motorsport. SEAT has a proud track history, which culminated in back-to-back driver and manufacturer titles in the FIA World Touring Car Championships in 2008 and 2009. Both triumphs were achieved with Leon models powered by TDI engines - making SEAT the first manufacturer to win a WTCC title with a diesel.

The Leon Cup Racer will be driven up the Hill by SEAT Sport driver Jordi Gene, the celebrated Spanish racing driver who piloted a SEAT Leon for the SEAT Sport WTCC factory team between 2005 and 2009. The car is powered by a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine with 330bhp and 340Nm of torque, fed to the front wheels through either a six-speed DSG automatic or a sequential racing transmission.

Racing teams are already able to register interest in purchasing the car, with prices starting at €70,000 (S$115,331) sans local taxes.

This year will be the third time that SEAT has participated in the Goodwood Festival of Speed – which is celebrating its 20th anniversary, incidentally during the same year that SEAT celebrates the 20th anniversary of its Martorell production facility.
