At the 2014 Wörthersee Treffen, SEAT is presenting a radically open-top fun-mobile: the Seat Ibiza CUPSTER. A low, wrap-around windscreen and the complete absence of a top make the CUPSTER, the CUPRA Roadster, provides a highly dynamic basis with its 132 kW / 180 PS TSI engine and DSG dual-clutch transmission.
Even without roof, the driver and co-driver are well protected thanks to the seating position, which is 80 millimetres lower than in the series-production car. The steering wheel is clad with an especially sophisticated type of leather. Pure aniline leather is coloured all the way through, without a layer of pigment.
The one-off created and built by SEAT Design is resplendent in “New Orange” paintwork formulated specifically for it. The interior is purist and based on the Ibiza race cars from the Ibiza Trophy run in several European countries. Minimalist instruments and black Alcantara upholstery for the cockpit, low-slung racing bucket seats make for a real racing feel.
There is also no shortage of performance for the CUPSTER, based on the Ibiza CUPRA. A powerful 132 kW / 180 PS are delivered from the 1.4 TSI engine, super-fast gear changes thanks to the DSG transmission and precision sports running gear with 18-inch wheels.
