What you see here in the pictures is the hot new Seat Leon Cupra R. Updates include a minor bump in horsepower, some tasteful modifications on the outside and a couple of chassis revisions so as to make it more intense than ever before. This means the 2.0-litre turbo petrol unit now produces 306bhp - a gain of over 10bhp over Cupra 300. As a result, the manual Cupra R is officially SEAT's most powerful auto ever.

Those opting for the DSG version, though, won't receive those extra 10 ponies. Happily however, there's a new version here to give the Honda and the Ford what for: the Leon Cupra R.

Like the standard Cupra 300, the R utilises adaptive dampers, albeit in re-calibrated form to suit the extra camber that SEAT engineers have dialled into the front axle. Massive Brembo brakes do deceleration duties.

Besides the bang-on-trend matte grey and contrasting copper paintjob, the Seat Leon Cupra R features carbon fibre detailing on the front and rear spoilers, side skirts and rear diffusers for a race-inspired look as well as bespoke 19-inch alloys (with yet more copper).

Seat announces the Leon Cupra R, a little more efficient and much more exclusive than the CupraSeat will present at the Frankfurt 2017 show a new Cupra R, subject to long-standing rumors.

If you thought the SEAT Leon Cupra was quick, wait until you get a load of this thing.

The interior, meanwhile, gets in on the carbon fibre and copper action, while the steering wheel and gearstick are wrapped in fancy Alcantara. SEAT will offer the Leon Cupra R in two standard colours - Midnight Black and Pyrenees Grey - while there's also the Matte Grey finish sported by the vehicle seen here, which will incur an extra cost.
