Built to celebrate the 30 year anniversary of the iconic SEAT Ibiza, the Ibiza CUPSTER is set to wow fans at the now hugely anticipated annual show.
This innovative design study, created and built by SEAT Design, is based on the series production Ibiza Cupra, with its 180 PS TSI engine and DSG dual-clutch transmission. However, in CUPSTER form, this Ibiza concept model is lower and wider than its racy predecessor. The two-seater car has no roof, the front windscreen has been replaced with a wrap-around strip window and the seating position is 80 millimetres lower than the series-production car.
The steering wheel is swathed in pure aniline leather and the paint work is a custom ‘New Orange’ hue, with a dark grey cover behind the classic ‘double-bubble’ style seats. The interior lends itself towards a traditional racing feel, with the design lead being taken from the Ibiza Trophy race car. With minimalist instrument dials, black Alcantara upholstery and low-slung bucket seats, the Ibiza CUSPTER has a definite racing feel.
There is also no shortage of performance – the CUPSTER is based on the Ibiza CUPRA. And that means a powerful 180 PS from the 1.4 TSI engine, super-fast gear changes thanks to the DSG transmission and precision sports running gear with 18-inch wheels.
