Seat’s fiery Leon Cupra R hot hatch has proved a smash-hit in the UK, with all models destined for these shores snapped up already.

Cupra Rs might have sold out already, but you can find hundreds of lease deals on the standard (but still super-fast) Leon Cupra here. Alternatively, read on to find out more about Seat’s 310bhp beast…

SELL OUT: All of Seat's Leon Cupra Rs have been reserved.

Featuring a highly tuned version of the standard Cupra 300’s 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, the R pumps out 306bhp – enough to make it the most potent road-going Seat ever.

The Cupra R doesn’t vary too much on the outside, with the most notable addition being a unique copper-effect finish on the alloy wheels and door mirrors. Other changes include more carbon fibre trim and more aggressive bumpers and side skirts.

New Seat Leon Cupra R is the most powerful road-going car Seat has ever made.

There will be three colours to choose from; Midnight Black, Pyrenees Grey (neither with extra cost) and the exclusive Matte Grey seen in the pictures here.

We are yet to see a picture of the cabin, although it’ll likely mirror the sporty enhancements seen on the outside – Alcantara trim will feature, including the steering wheel, while carbon and copper-finished trim will finish the look off.

It gets several enhancements over the Cupra 300 (above) , thanks to wider wheel arches, copper-effect trim and a unique set of alloy wheels.

Seat is keeping tight-lipped about official performance stats, although we can expect a 0-62mph time of around five seconds, while top speed is likely to be a (limited) 155mph.

It can be specified as a manual six-speed or with Seat’s DSG automatic gearbox just like the standard Cupra, but an adaptive sports suspension, a performance exhaust and uprated brakes mark it out from less potent versions.

It'll be available from the end of 2017, but no lease rates are available yet.

With just 24 destined for UK shores, all of them have already been snapped up. That doesn’t mean you can’t get in on the Cupra action though – find hundreds of lease deals on the standard Cupra by clicking here.
