Seat unveils new SportCoupe
Dubai, March 30, 2008
The Geneva Motor Show is the venue chosen by Seat to unveil the new SportCoupé ‘Bocanegra’ prototype, a vehicle that oozes character and sportiness.
This is the beginning of Seat’s new short-term product venture that will feature the glitzy launch of the new Ibiza generation and the new saloon that will be unveiled in 2009.
“The Seat SportCoupé ‘Bocanegra’ is a sporty, design oriented prototype, with which we want our brand’s position to stand out. At the same time, the ‘Bocanegra’ is an outlook of the future design language of Seat,” said Seat president Erich Schmitt stressing the importance of the new SportCoupé.
Able to convey intense emotion at first glance, the “Bocanegra” bears the “practical, good looks” theory applied by Seat design director Luc Donckerwolke. The car gets its name from the spectacular black clad front, whose top half is set off by captivating dark Perspex from which the LED headlamps emerge.
The ‘Bocanegra’s’ low-slung, four-metre long compact coupé body offers a perfect synergy between sporty looks and behaviour and the functionality, roominess and high-level safety standards required to adapt to almost any need.
The rear-end looks stand out especially with robust shoulders which lends the vehicle a more compact, appealing image.
Seat’s new prototype is equipped with the unprecedented combination of a powerful and efficient twin turbo 1.4 TSI engine and seven-speed DSG gearbox with steering wheel mounted controls, which is sure to provide lots of driving excitement.
The possibility of changing gears by flicking the paddles on the steering wheel and the outstanding stability and precision of Seat’s hallmark “Agile Chassis” afford drivers an exhilarating, sporty driving experience.
