Well I haven't seen the latest VW report, but I don't think they've confirmed officially but it seems it's strongly suggested on the 7R forums

You and me both, i waited to the Frankfurt show to see what news there was, , not a whisper , wich i found very odd. Then Evo mag done a small bit about no one at VW wanting to talk about the R400, then Ford dropped the Focus rs bomb, so i put me money down and ordered one.

Ive had 1.8T for 2 years now but having a nice discount on CUPRA 290 I went for it last week. The manufacturing is a bit quicker now according to the dealer so hopefully here around April 2016.

Now the waiting begins...

Are you serious? That's a fe*king ugly car. In particular, the low hips of the Mk7 are a disaster, but actually there's not much else either to cheer for. Especially not with this CS joke, or compared with a Leon.

:banned:
The day I take styling tips from someone from Stockholm will be the day they can serve Ben and Jerrys in the underworld ;) what do you mean hips? She is a thing of beauty and no one will convince me otherwise :1st:

Thanks for making my day. I actually peed a little when laughing to such a comment coming from someone in the UK....!

Anyhow, I guess it's with good taste and a keen eye for design like it is with musicality. Some people simply don't have it...

:moon:

Anyone know any more on the Cupra R speculation?
They've used the 290 to refresh the Cupra promotion a bit so expect it to go quiet for a bit.

Think facelift later this year which starts with the cooking models then onto facelift cupra time.

A mk3 LCR in 18 months time would tempt me.

to me the Cupra 290 is great news, it means the new facelifted Cupra R should break the 300 hp psychological barrier :) I know it's only 10 hp extra (or close to none in reality), but it sounds different (in a good way) :D
