Radio DJ Scott Mills tunes in to Seat

Seat Leon Cupra R

‘Drive time’ now means something different for national radio celebrity Scott Mills as he’s recently taken delivery of a super-sporty new SEAT Leon Cupra R.
The popular radio and TV personality is thrilled to get behind the wheel of SEAT’s most potent production model to date – the scorching 155 mph, 265 PS 2.0-litre turbocharged Leon Cupra R.
Scott said: ‘I think it’s really good looking.  It’s sleek and sporty and the wheels really look fantastic.
‘It has become a bit of a thing with all my mates.  They want to go in my car all the time which means I have to drive everywhere!’
He added: ‘I’ve owned quite a few big and powerful cars but the Leon is right up there with any of them.  It’s fantastic fun to drive and I just love it.
‘The sound system is amazing and I’ve set up my iPhone so I can stream in music and listen to radio stations from the States, and the quality’s brilliant.’
SEAT’s most powerful roadgoing car to date, launched here last year, is making a similarly big impression on less high profile SEAT fans, too.  Currently, would-be Cupra R owners face three months of tingling anticipation after placing their order as they wait to join a select band of UK owners.
Despite its rip-roaring 155 mph top speed and fiery 6.2-second 0-62 mph time, this ‘ultimate’ Leon is kind to its driver’s pocket with a combined fuel economy figure of 34.9 mpg and very respectable CO2 emissions figure of 190 g/km.
Meanwhile, with an attainable price tag of just £25,995 RRP, the Leon Cupra R is also one of the most cost-effective ways into ultra-hot hatch ownership.
Handing over the Leon’s keys to Scott, SEAT UK’s Head of Press and PR Mike Orford said: ‘The appeal of this thrilling SEAT is obvious.  Great hot hatch styling, fabulous performance and SEAT’s trademark sporty ride and handling are all there in spades.
‘And with just a few hundred examples of this car on the road in the UK, it gives its driver the opportunity to really turn heads and stand out from the crowd.’
