Reifnitz, 28/5/2014. At the 2014 Wörthersee Treffen, SEAT is showing a completely new interpretation of the most successful model in the company’s history – the Ibiza Cupster celebrates the Ibiza’s 30th birthday with maximum open-air fun. A low wrap-around screen and the complete absence of a roof make the Cupster a radical pocket rocket for driver and passenger alike. The highly dynamic basis is provided by the Ibiza CUPRA with a 132 kW / 180 PS TSI power unit and DSG dual-clutch gearbox.

The show car is the focus of SEAT’s presence at the legendary GTI meet in the Austrian state of Kärnten. The Cupster is accompanied by the hottest members of the new Leon family, the Leon CUPRA Black Edition, CUPRA Performance Pack and the Leon Cup Racer, the racing machine for SEAT’s new single-make series, the Eurocup.

SEAT is also offering an exciting fringe programme for fans of the Spanish brand, with highlights such as car tennis with real cars. The organisers of this year’s 33rd GTI Treffen are once again expecting significantly more than 100,000 visitors over the four days of the show.

“The Ibiza has always been the heart of SEAT – a young, dynamic car with an emotional design, a good head for the practical things in life and excellent value for money,” says Jürgen Stackmann, President of SEAT S.A. “At Wörthersee, we are celebrating the anniversary of our most successful model with the unique Ibiza Cupster and, of course, with a great programme.”

“With its flat silhouette, powerful proportions and low seating position, the Cupster is the resolute embodiment of SEAT’s dynamic brand values. In design and in sporting character, the Cupster is the ultimate Ibiza variant – and it delivers driving joy in its purest form,” stresses Dr. Matthias Rabe, Vice President of Research and Development.
