The Seat Ibiza Cupster is characterized by the low, wrap-around windscreen, the shallow, triangular shaped DLO graphics and the complete absence of a top. All this results into a low, sporty stance, enhanced by the 18-inch wheels.
The basis is provided by the Ibiza Cupra, with its 132 kW / 180 PS TSI engine and DSG dual-clutch transmission.
While the body shell is largely the same as that of the series-production model up to the shoulder line, everything above has been specifically redesigned.
The driver and co-driver are protected from the airflows thanks to the seating position, which is 80 millimetres lower than in the series-production car.
The Seat Ibiza Cupster is painted in “New Orange”, a paintwork formulated specifically for the car. The dark grey cover behind the classic double-bubble style seats looks almost like an island in this sea of bright orange.
The interior is purist and based on the Ibiza race cars from the Ibiza Trophy run in several European countries.
Among the features are the minimalist instrumentations, black Alcantara upholstery, low-slung racing bucket seats and a steering wheel clad with a special leather – pure aniline leather is coloured all the way through, without a layer of pigment, making it open-pored, very supple and pleasant to the touch.
