SEAT Leon CUPRA 280 Gets Sub8 Performance Pack
SEAT has launched Sub8 Performance Pack as well as two coloured exterior packs - Black-Line and White-Line for the Leon CUPRA 280. The cars will be available with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres and CUPRA bucket seats. The storming CUPRA 280 became the first front-wheel-drive vehicle which was capable of dipping under the eight-minute Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time. The optional Sub8 Performance Pack features more substantial brakes, specially-designed 19-inch alloy wheels in either black or orange and body-coloured side skirts.
The brake discs measured at 370 mm provide enough stopping power in keeping with the car's potency, and are 30mm larger than those on the standard car. They also feature Brembo four piston callipers. Furthermore, the CUPRA 280's electronically-controlled limited slip differential offers impressive levels of grip. Leon CUPRA 280 is five-door car, which on one hand is capable of up to 44.1 mpg, while on the other hand it can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) from standstill in only 5.7 seconds.
CUPRA Black-Line and White-Line exterior packs also debuted at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. They were designed to add an extra dose of Latin flair to the Leon flagship. These two shades will be initially available, with more packs to be introduced in the future. Such is the Orange-Line, which will be launched in December.
Precisely, they include CUPRA 19-inch alloy wheels, door mirrors, CUPRA tailgate lettering and front grille surround, and black rear side spoilers. Rounding out the array of option additions for the Leon CUPRA 280 are the special bucket seats. The front seats include one-piece head restraint and are wrapped in black Alcantara with simil leather bolsters and white accents, with embossed CUPRA logo.
