The highly anticipated CUPRA Formentor VZ5 has been confirmed to include torque splitter technology and an all-new Drift Mode for maximum stability and agility during high-speed cornering.

The electro-hydraulic fully variable torque splitter system uses two separate clutches to enable independent torque control on each rear wheel. This means that it can shift the power from the Formentor’s 2.5-litre TSI five-cylinder engine between the rear wheels (whichever is on the outside) during cornering, providing remarkable agility on the road.

The multi-plate clutch pack has its own ECU that constantly analyses wheel speed, longitudinal and lateral acceleration, yaw angle, steering angle, accelerator pedal position and the selected gear – before sending the required amount of torque to the wheel with the most load to ensure greater turn-in speed and stability mid-corner.

Thanks to the existing chassis system and the torque splitter technology, the CUPRA engineers have also...
