SEAT Leon Cupra: Mean and Green

July 12th, 2012

The SEAT brand isn't sold here in the US, but it doesn't make this car any less spectacular. The Leon Cupra is one the many European hot hatches that hasn't made it to our market, but Swedish owner "MyGel" as he is known on the forums, has built a car that we would love to have. This particular car features our P40 forged wheels in a gloss black finish that look fantastic against the lime green paint.

The mod list on this car is extensive and it's been converted to an all-wheel-drive setup to ensure that the turbocharged 2.0 liter is putting all of the horsepower to the ground. See the full details below and the build thread here:
