Gallery: Seat’s Cooking Up a Hotter Leon Cupra

New spy pictures suggest that Volkswagen’s Spanish subsidiary, SEAT, might be cooking up a hotter Leon.

The face-lifted Leon was already set for a hot version, known as the Cupra, but these shots show a heavily modified Leon that might be even more powerful still.

Our photographer draws our attention to the fact that the front fenders are wider on the car pictured above, suggesting a wider track. And the four exhaust pipes coming out of the rear of the car, instead of the usual pair oval-shaped pipes that normally come with the Cupra, also suggest something hotter.

This, of course, is of interest to us here, because the Leon and the Golf are sister cars, so any work done the one could conceivably make into the other.
