Live from the British Motorshow
SEAT Launched the New Leon Cupra, boasting it's Motorsport Heritage with BTCC & WTCC Leaders Jason Plato & James Thompson unveiling the new model. Lined up on a mock grid, were two Leon's - one Black, one Yellow simulataneously unveiled with the worlds media watching
The Cronos Yellow looks bold, but not too bright even under the bright lights at EXcel
Introduced by SEAT President Dr. Andreas Schleef he explained the importance of the UK market to SEAT's sporty models where the UK was the outgoing Cupra's leading market.
He then brought in James Thompson & Jason Plato (BTCC & WTCC Drivers for SEAT Sport UK) to unveil the new car.
One the covers were back - it's a free for all for images before people start climbing all over the stand!
A bit more posing for camera's while Dr Shleef & JP share jokes (or look like they are!)
One mean imposing nose here!
A more rounded rear than the standard specification Leon's
As promised - 345mm Brembo's for Hauling up 240bhp
Inside - both cars have Right hand Drive Dashboards & instruments (quite a suprise for a new model)
The bucket seats are firm, but very supportive suggesting that the car will provide some cornering thrills!
More Hi-res images to follow later on today once the crowds have died down
