SEAT Announces Major Presence at Worthersee Tour 2011

Between today, June 1st, and the 4th, fans of the Spanish brand will be presenting their most spectacular pieces of tuning on the roads and town squares around the Worthersee. SEAT themselves are are also going to displaying six particularly fiery versions of the Ibiza and Leon on their own open-air stand – including two cup cars built for motorsport.

This isn’t some little gathering for fans, as organizers are expecting around 120,000 visitors spread over its four show days. To cope with the number of cars it has to display and the increase visitation, SEAT stand, which has been increased to 450 sqm, is dedicated to the sportiest models in the Ibiza and Leon ranges in the shape of the FR and Cupra/Cupra R variants.

The white Ibiza SC Cupra comes equipped with an aerodynamic kit and a matching white interior kit. Meanwhile, the Leon FR in Candy White is shown with discreet piano black interior trim. Its sporty credentials are clearly stated by a sports exhaust system with two separate tailpipes, 18-inch wheels and a sports suspension with shorter springs.

In the motorsport section, the Leon Supercopa and the brand new Ibiza SC Trophy will be on display. Under the bonnet of the Ibiza racer is the 180 hp unit from the Cupra, while the 7-speed DSG transmission has steering wheel shift paddles like the series-production model.

The Leon Supercopa is even more extreme, a touring car has visual similarities to its siblings from the WTCC that provides an impressive 301 hp from the 2.0 litre TSI engine from the Leon Cupra R. In parallel with the GTI Treffen, from June 3 to 5, the SEAT Leon Supercopa will tackle the brand new Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
