The SEAT Leon Cupra R has been showcased at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. It is the brand’s most powerful offering. Here are the hot-hatch’s images from the show.

The production of the SEAT Leon Cupra R is limited to 799 units. The bodywork features exclusive carbon fibre details on the front and rear spoilers, side skirts and rear diffuser; wing mirrors and rims in copper and a redesigned front bumper and wheel arches. The interior gets carbon fibre and copper treatment as well, and the steering wheel and gearstick will be wrapped in Alcantara. The Cupra R comes in three colours: Midnight Black, Pyrenees Grey and the optional exclusive Matte Grey.
