ABT’s Seat Leon ST Cupra Is A Beast Of A Compact Wagon

The people over at ABT Sportsline have come up with yet another project, a tuned Seat Leon ST Cupra, complete with a power boost.

The 2.0-liter four-banger was tuned to deliver 370 PS (365 hp / 272 kW) and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque. The extra 70 PS (69 hp / 51 kW) and 80 Nm (59 lb-ft) of torque were obtained by remapping the ECU and probably installing a new exhaust system.

Just for kicks, we’ll remind you that the Lamborghini Countach LP400 used to have 375 PS (370 hp / 276 kW) from a V12 engine. And while the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint time of 5.4 seconds may be within reach for the modern all-wheel drive compact estate, the 309 km/h (192 mph) top speed isn’t.

While the Leon ST Cupra tuned by ABT doesn’t sport any other mods apart from a new wheel set, being that this isn’t their first encounter with the brand’s performance model, they could fit it with a bunch of other parts they’ve release for the series.

ABT’s other offerings range from all sorts of wheels in sizes of up to 20 inches and lowering suspension kits to integrated entrance lights with the tuner’s logo and interior trimmings.
