Away kit

Seat shows off bodykitted new Leon Cupra. The old one was a bit subtle, see

SEAT Leon Cupra

Hardly an understated shrinking violet of a hot hatch to start with, the Seat Leon Cupra has just got even more visually, erm, striking thanks to a new bodykit.

Called the K1 (after the lesser-known Himalayan peak, presumably) kit, it'll cost you £1,000 over the Cupra's £19,495 asking price. For your cash, you get fresh front and rear bumpers, deeper side skirts, a bigger spoiler and - as if you hadn't spotted it already - a pert little centre-mounted oval exhaust.

Seat says the K1 kit has been inspired by the firm's BTCC race cars - indeed, you can even spec the 18-inch alloys in touring-car-chic white.

If you fancy having your name scrawled in six-inch-high letters across the rear windows, you'll have to do that yourself. It'll impress the ladies if you do, though.

Now share it...
