There's sales to be made competing with the tourag or how ever you spell it some Spanish wizz made his own from a breakers cupra mk3 Google itAnd what the hell use is that? 'Hot' versions of an SUV, proper marketing bollards that is.
To be fair the head technician is hardly in the "circle" of knowledge, guys in SEAT ES will know what is planned. SEAT UK staff will find out once its confirmed. Head technician will find out once its out lol.Quoted from head technician from my dealership 3 days ago on a test drive on my cupra
Know what your saying but I did read it on a nurburgring forum on vag about it's been seen and pictured, cockpit picture showed a 8000rpm redline so seems plausible.To be fair the head technician is hardly in the "circle" of knowledge, guys in SEAT ES will know what is planned.

The R model is always a roll out model towards end of production.
Just confirmed by Autoexpress, 799 units to be made (in total)
306bhp, FWD, manual gear box
Or 300bhp on DSG.
0-62 in 5.6s
£33k, a whopping 2.5k more for 6 bhp and the upgraded breaks.
Why am I dissapqointed?
no 4WD, little gain in power, aestheticnaly ok'ish, not great.
Incidentally, my LCR mk1 cost me 17k back in 2003 , different league obviously, but almost half the money.
The LCR mk3 should have been a 400bhp 4WD beast IMHO.
Should have just kept the 280 throughout production and then announced the 310/300 R now.Given the different iterations of Cupra there have already been I didn't expect an R this time around. They didn't have anywhere to go without stepping on toes imo, hence why this recent announcement is being criticised.

Yep, that's why I didn't expect them to go for it, they'd already filled the gap that existed for one to naturally slot into. Feels like an element of greed here, trying to cover as many bases as possible but not having the scope to differentiate enough between the variations.
