Volkswagen's Spanish brand Seat has revealed a bonkers new racing hatch this week, unveiled at this year's Wörthersee Treffen in Germany.

Based on the five-door Seat Leon hatch, the Leon Cup Racer is a track-focused beast with a widened track, aero package and a turbo heart.

Power in the Leon CR is provided by an enhanced version of Audi's 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, producing 243kW and 350Nm of torque.

In the CR, all of that urge goes to the front wheels, sent there through a six-speed DSG transmission and an electronically-controlled differential lock.

A special endurance version will also be offered when production begins, swapping in a sequential racing transmission and a mechanical diff.

"Motorsport is deeply anchored in our brand; SEAT has more than 40 years of racing history and, with the Leon Cup Racer, we are now writing the next chapter for our highly motivated customer teams. The Cup Racer is not a show model, but the first test car for our development work," Seat R&D boss Dr. Matthias Rabe said.

"The new generation of the SEAT Leon provides a compelling basis. [...] With the racing version, we are building on from the great sporty success of recent years."

Riding on wide 18-inch wheels, the Leon CR gets pumped guards and flared skirting, new bumpers, a two-phase roof spoiler and a covered underbody.

Inside, there's a roll cage, bucket seats with HANS system, a TFT telematics display and a track-prepared multi-function steering wheel.

While this concept is a test platform for the company's racing arm, Seat is already taking orders from privateer racing teams. The 'regular' model will be priced at €70,000 (AU$89,350), while the endurance setup will run for €95,000 (AU$121,200).
