Cupra 280 Revo Brakes & Wheels

SEAT Leon Cupra 280 2.0 TSI 16v L4 (5F) Petrol

The Seat Leon Cupra 280 combines the front wheel drive platform from the MK7 Golf GTI, with the Golf Rs more powerful engine, making a very lively hot hatch! Lightness is key to good handling, so a set of lightweight Revo RV019 alloy wheels, as well as Revo’s Alcon 6 piston brake kit and Superpro’s alloy lower arm kit were fitted. To top it off we retrofitted the lightweight aluminium subframe from an Audi S3 and a Powerflex hybrid lower engine mount to increase traction.
