I think if / when the Cupra R is released it will have the same price tag as the new Cupra but at that point the new Cupra will reduce in price tag by a few thousand as was done in the past?

according to the salesman when i purchased my car 2 weeks ago he said it will just be the cupra they are not doing the R
He's trying to sell you a Cupra, the last thing he is going to tell you is that an R will be available and lose the sale.

Dont expect a LCR until 2016-2017, if you follow the MK2 it will be another roll out model.

I would like it to be 300+. Probably 320ps.

Of course 4wd would be good but i very much doubt it.

I think the definitive answer will come from next months Geneva car show , if a Cupra R is close it will debut there even if it's in concept form.

I'm going to buy an S1 , the styling looks great , the performance even better and 4wd oh and it's manual only which makes my choice even easier , this think with a nice little map on it will be an absolute hoot to drive and a pocket rocket.

One thing I do know for sure the tuning companies are going to be spoilt for choice this year with all these new models.
The polo R is due 2015 , based on the S1 platform and running gear , and if seat can't get a Cupra R out by then to compete then a lot of prospective buyers will have their heads turned by the Polo R , S1 and even a year old S3

I wouldn't have thought they'd have hinted at an R so soon, surely that would hurt Cupra sales. As others have said it'll be a few years away yet.

We have here in CZ the situation around cupra a bit different. The list price is according actual rate 24300 Euros for 280 5d with six speed manual gearbox. I don't believe it can go lower to let cupra r has got the same price tag later. And what more you can get a discount at dealership. E.g. Golf gti without perf pack is about 22890 euros list price.

Thought the mk3 was butt ugly when it came out and all.
Still not 100% sold BUT Id give an organ to have an all black Cupra 280 DSG. The right colour can hide lines in a car, which black does nicely on the 280.

Maybe the same applies to the A1?....and a blindfold

I for one have always thought the MK3 is a really good looking car. In any trim and/or body. :)

Pure speculation dude, only a handful of people at SEAT ES will know at this moment in time what the plans for the Cupra R if there are any at all.

Sales person will know jack all.
