CUPRA Leon Competición

Martorell, 20 February 2020

Whether you want to compete in TCR series around the world or Endurance racers the Cupra Leon Competición has been engineered to compete no matter what the track throws at it.

Based on the new CUPRA Leon, reinforcing the link between the road and the track, the Leon Competición incorporates revised bodywork that brings significant aerodynamic efficiency improvements helping it to cut through the air and increase downforce. A full kinematic geometry in both axles that use lightweight components better distributes weight and a CUPRA racing-specific electronics architecture reduce weight, is more robust, customisable and modular.

At the race cars heart is a 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol engine that produces 340PS (250kW) at 6,800rpm and 410Nm of torque along most of the rpm range. Linked to a six-speed sequential racing transmission, it can reach 100km/h in just 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 260km/h.

With a chassis that can be tuned to the racing conditions, teams will take an edge into each race. The CUPRA Leon Competición incorporates front MacPherson struts with adjustable height, camber, toe, caster, Ackermann and track, while the rear Multilink setup allows for changes to the height, camber, toe and track. Front and rear rollbars can be set and changed.

Even before its World Premiere, the CUPRA Leon Competición was setting new standards, having opened online pre-order bookings at the end of 2019 – the first touring race car to offer this service. All pre-booked race cars will be delivered exclusively at CUPRA’s headquarters from April.

CUPRA is at the centre of the TCR and PURE ETCR race series’, developing vehicles specifically to compete in both categories, and is a core creator of both combustion and electric powertrains.

The CUPRA e-Racer and CUPRA Leon Competición make their World Premieres at the CUPRA Garage inauguration on February 20th.
