SEAT Ibiza CUPSTER to be unveiled at Wörthersee Share Comments SEAT will unveil it’s new Ibiza CUPSTER concept at Wörthersee later this month, which has been built as a design study to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the iconic SEAT Ibiza. To complete the ‘speedster’ look, the Ibiza CUPSTER has no roof and features a wrap-around window strip as opposed to a traditional full-size windshield. The CUPSTER is also wider, lower and offers a seating position that is 80mm lower than the production Ibiza Cupra that it is based on. On the inside, the racing theme has carried through with design cues lifted fro the Ibiza Trophy race cars, including minimalist gauges, black Alcantara upholstery, and low slung bucket seats.

Radical open-top show car to celebrate SEAT Ibiza 30th anniversary One-off project created and designed by SEAT Design Based on the Ibiza CUPRA 1.4 TSI 180 PS model SEAT will present an exciting new design study at the 2014 Wörthersee Treffen later this month. Built to celebrate the 30 year anniversary of the iconic SEAT Ibiza, the Ibiza CUPSTER is set to wow fans at the now hugely anticipated annual show. This innovative design study, created and built by SEAT Design, is based on the series production Ibiza Cupra, with its 180 PS TSI engine and DSG dual-clutch transmission. However, in CUPSTER form, this Ibiza concept model is lower and wider than its racy predecessor. The two-seater car has no roof, the front windscreen has been replaced with a wrap-around strip window and the seating position is 80 millimetres lower than the series-production car. “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, not to mention the exceptionally well-equipped 30 Years edition – and, of course, with a great programme.” Every Ibiza captures the imagination, with a design that is as emotional as it is dynamic – and cited by customers as one of the most important reasons for buying the Spanish brand’s most successful model. SEAT Design has created a surprising reinterpretation of this design language in the Ibiza CUPSTER. The steering wheel is swathed in pure aniline leather and the paint work is a custom ‘New Orange’ hue, with a dark grey cover behind the classic ‘double-bubble’ style seats. The interior lends itself towards a traditional racing feel, with the design lead being taken from the Ibiza Trophy race car. With minimalist instrument dials, black Alcantara upholstery and low-slung bucket seats, the Ibiza CUPSTER has a definite racing feel. There is also no shortage of performance – the CUPSTER is based on the Ibiza CUPRA. And that means a powerful 180 PS from the 1.4 TSI engine, super-fast gear changes thanks to the DSG transmission and precision sports running gear with 18-inch wheels.
