CUPRA has opened pre-booking for it’s new TCR race car, the CUPRA Leon Competición.

“CUPRA has always had a pioneering role in the world of motorsport. We were the developers of the first TCR platform, and last year we presented the first 100% electric touring car, the CUPRA e-Racer. With this solution, CUPRA shows its intentions to be the reference point to the racing world and makes another step towards the company’s e-commerce strategy”, stated Jaime Puig, director of CUPRA Racing.

CUPRA has launched an online pre-booking system where customers can register their interest in the CUPRA Leon Competición on the pre-booking system (https://prebooking.cupraofficial.com) deliveries will start from April 2020.

The latest TCR race car will be based on the next-generation of CUPRA Leon – which is also coming up next year, demonstrating the brand’s connection between the streets and the track. The CUPRA Leon Competición brings together new CUPRA bodywork helping the race car carve through the air due to its improved aerodynamic efficiency. It also benefits from a full kinematic geometric setup in both axles that use lightweight components to improve weight distribution, while the shifting unit has been improved making it more robust – a necessity on race days. The vehicle’s heart, a 2.0 litre turbocharged unit, has seen its performance increased, making it even more competitive, while the CUPRA Leon Competición integrates a 100% CUPRA racing electronic architecture that is lighter, more robust, modular and customisable.

CUPRA press release

We expect the CUPRA Leon Competición to be unveiled at the opening of the new CUPRA Headquarters alongside the road going CUPRA Leon.
