The Seat Leon Cupra or Cupra Leon, as it has been called since the current model
generation, is one of the sportiest and most powerful representatives of the popular class of
hot hatches. It is also available as Sportstourer, ST for short, and is a practical and fun toy
for the family fathers among the petrolheads. It is well known that drivers of such vehicles
also like to make modifications. This is how it happened with this Leon Cupra ST example of
the third model generation 5F.
The conversion came about as part of a joint project between Premio in Oberhausen and the
JMS Fahrzeugteile team from Walddorfhäslach in Swabia. A set of the popular Tzunamee
EVO alloy wheels from Barracuda Racing Wheels, for which JMS is one of the exclusive sales
partners in Europe, was installed on the axles of the sports suit. The wheels have a dark
gunmetal brushed finish and the dimensions are 8.5×19 inches all around. The mounted
Continental Sport Contact tires measure 235/35R19.
An appropriate lowering of the body was achieved with the help of a DDC Plug & Play
coilover kit from KW: This moved the body of the Cupra around 40 millimeters closer to the
asphalt. Last but not least – each from the Rieger Tuning program – a front spoiler sword and
a rear diffuser within which the factory tailpipes open up ensure even more optical spice.
