The VZ stands for Veloz in Spanish, meaning quick or fast, the perfect autograph for the most powerful versions of the CUPRA Formentor. A high-performance CUV that already takes its name from cape Formentor on the Spanish island of Mallorca, one of the most beautiful and wild areas in the Balearics.
The CUPRA Formentor VZ5, strengthens, multiplies and grows these attributes to deliver a vehicle the maximum expression of combustion performance for car enthusiasts. And exclusivity is ensured, with the vehicle’s run limited to 7,000 units.
The top of the range 390PS five-cylinder petrol engine offers the ultimate expression of the CUPRA brand’s DNA, with performance that will shatter perceptions of the brand and what it can deliver.
Mixing an advanced, tuneable chassis with driving modes and DCC Slider, progressive steering, an advanced quick-shifting transmission with the assurance of the 4Drive all-wheel drive system, dynamism, emotionality and performance is guaranteed.
The advanced technologies are veiled in an exterior design that moves the aesthetics beyond limits, using carbon fibre details and a more aggressive look – perfect for the VZ5’s performance focused character.
Inside the cabin provides modernity and sportiness with a unique take on the feel of the CUPRA brand. Interior highlights include the CUPRA steering wheel, a 12’’ infotainment and connectivity solutions. The finishing touch is the brand-new leather CUPBucket seats, presented for the first time with the VZ5.
And as the roads become busier, safety and convenience also take on an important role. Its range of driver assistance and safety systems means that the CUV will provide one of the most relaxing and safest drives in the segment.
“The CUPRA Formentor provides an excellent base to develop a range of vehicles that maximize driving fun and performance and enhance the attitude of the brand. Among them, the VZ5 is the most powerful and sophisticated variant ever created to date and I am convinced that with its exclusive performance elements, it will become a dream for car enthusiasts,” said Dr. Werner Tietz, Executive Vice-President for Research and Development at CUPRA and SEAT.
