Seat launches new performance pack for Leon model

Seat has launched the new ultimate sub8 performance pack as an option when buying the Leon SC Cupra 280.

The pack focuses on weight reduction by swapping the usual climate control for a simpler heating system, the loss of four of its usual eight speakers, the removal of the centre console armrest and rear air vents and the storage boxes under the front seat have also been binned.

The rest of the pack is as per the standard sub8 performance pack, which means lightweight multi-spoke 19-inch alloy wheels in black or orange, 30mm larger brakes with Brembo calipers and body-coloured side skirts.

Specifying the pack on a Leon SC Cupra 280, costing £27,210 in manual guise, brings the price to £31,410 - £5,020 less than its closest direct rival, the two-seater Mégane Renaultsport 275 Trophy-R.

The model features the usual choice of six-speed manual or slick-shifting DSG transmission.

The pack can be specified now with all new Leon SC Cupra 280 orders.
