Seat showcases two amateur racing cars at Wörthersee festival

Article by Anita Panait, on May 18, 2012

Seat has unveiled two tuned road monsters at the ongoing Wörthersee festival – the Leon Super Copa and the Ibiza SC Trophy. Both cars are regarded as having the ability to compete with some of the world’s fastest cars, as they are based on their respective racing siblings. Based on the new generation of the Ibiza, the Ibiza SC Trophy is run by a 180 PS 1.4 TSI engine, with power transmitted to the wheels through a seven-speed DSG gearbox that features locking differential.

This transmission is operated from the steering wheel, just like the one used on the series-production model.  To better handle the lateral forces, Seat installed a modified oil sump on the 180 PS 1.4 TSI engine while fitting racing suspension running on 18-inch wheels covered with flared wheel arches. 

Inside the Ibiza SC Trophy, Seat employed a minimalist approach on its dashboard, showing only information that is relevant to racing drivers. With this specs, Ibiza SC Trophy could be considered the perfect starting machine for amateur racers.

Seat Sport is offering the Ibiza SC Trophy at a price of EUR31,500 excluding  tax. Single-brand race series of the model are now running successfully in Italy and Spain. The Leon Super Copa, meanwhile, is based from a sibling car that competes in the WTCC.

It is powered by an enhanced version of the 300-PS 2.0-litre TSI engine that runs the Leon Cupra R, allowing the car to reach a maximum speed of 250 km/h. The engine could produce up to 340 Nm of torque, which is transmitted to the front wheels through a six-speed DSG gearbox and mechanically locking differential.

Seat has already produced more than 250 units of the Leon Super Copa, which is offered at a price of EUR63,000, excluding taxes. The Leon Super Copa and Ibiza SC Trophy currently being shown at the Wörthersee both sport special grey paint finish and wheels, with mirror casings and roll cages done in fluorescent orange.
