Two further showpieces hold a licence to compete on the track – the Leon Cup Racer and the Seat Ibiza SC Trophy. They are shown at the Wörthersee festival with a special grey paint finish and wheels, mirrors and roll cage in fluorescent orange.
The Ibiza SC Trophy is now based on the new generation of the Ibiza and comes with the 180 hp 1.4 TSI power unit under the bonnet. The 7-speed DSG transmission is shifted from the steering wheel, as on the series-production model, while a locking differential guarantees amazing traction.
For the high lateral forces that occur under serious racing conditions, the engine comes with a modified oil sump, a mighty brake system and racing suspension running on 18-inch wheels housed under noticeably flared wheel arches. The dashboard is more minimalist than the series-production version and provides only the data truly relevant to racing drivers.
The Ibiza SC Trophy is offered by SEAT Sport for 31,500 Euros (excl. tax) and is the ideal starting machine for amateur racing drivers. Single-brand race series are currently running very successfully in Spain and Italy.
