CUPRA Formentor VZ5
The iconic turbocharged five-cylinder TSI engine under its bonnet roars performance.
The unit mixes direct-injection and turbocharging to help it achieve its peak power output of 390PS (287kW) from between 5,700rpm and 7,000rpm, while peak torque of 480Nm is available from 2,250rpm. It also delivers a rhythm and unique engine sound from the quad copper exhaust pipes.
The engine is well known and loved by car enthusiasts, but cooling system has received additional attention from CUPRA. The package now includes a CUPRA Formentor-specific design to optimise performance.
The astonishing 2.5 litre engine is linked to a quick shifting seven-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission. The combination means the CUPRA Formentor VZ5 can reach 100km/h in just 4.2 seconds and delivers a top speed of 250km/h. Numbers that will give the driver some real goose bumps behind the wheel.
