Seat Unveil New Car

SEAT's new World Touring Car has been unveiled at the Barcelona Motorshow

The car, which is based on the Spanish marque's Leon model, will make its debut before the end of the year and will replace the Toledo Cupra currently being campaigned.

Official track testing will commence within the next few weeks, however development will continue on the Toledo Cupra.

Managing director of SEAT Sport Jaime Puig, said: "The chance to develop a racing car from scratch until it is ready for the racetrack is a rarity. We have the powerful structure and extremely skilled people that are needed to turn the new Leon into a winner."

Parts of the car have already taken part in pre-season testing, with Jordi Gene first track-testing the handling of the chassis and the mechanical assemblies in a modified Altea last December.

A SEAT spokesperson said:  "This underlines just how much technical expertise the brand has at its disposal to put its race team on an equal standing with its rivals."
