UK SEAT Leon CUPRA R ST will have 350, not 370 BHP due to WLTP regulations

Due to the requirement to fit a particulate filter the new UK version of the LEON CUPRA R ST with the £500 ABT upgrade pack, the car will now only be packing 350 BHP over the std 300 BHP version of the car. This is instead of the previously communicated 370 BHP.

This will likely come as a bit of disappointment to fans as 370 was going to make the car pretty monstrous and would give a certain element of “bragging rights” for those that care about such things.

We await details on how this will affect 0-60 times of the car and will update when we know more.
