Cupra has unveiled its latest TCR contender, the Leon Competición. Fitted with a 2.0-liter, production-based engines as per the series regulations, it produces 340bhp at 6,800rpm and 410Nm of torque. Drive is transmitted through a 6-speed sequential transmission from Sadev.
Though TCR is a performance-balanced series, there are a number of updates to the car compared with the previous Cupra TCR, with revised bodywork and chassis geometry. Cupra said that these reduce weight without sacrificing rigidity, while also giving scope for greater customization without going over the minimum weight limit.
The company noted it has also collaborated with HP to leverage additive manufacturing for the production of parts. Through the use of a HP Jet Fusion 5200 printer, parts such as the steering wheel display housing, the hood vents, door mirrors and brake cooling vents have been printed, providing Cupra’s engineers with greater design freedom compared with traditional manufacturing methods.
