Fittingly the Spanish Seat Cupra GT was revealed at the 2003 Barcelona Motor Show.

The stunning Cupra GT is obviously intended for the racetracks of Europe. Beneath the carbon fiber skin of this concept racing car, competition engineers at Seat Sport have developed a sophisticated tubular structure that houses a 2.995 cc V6 twin turbo engine, from Audi origin, with over 500 hp output. The engine is in a rear central position and delivers power to the rear wheels with an efficient, six-speed sequential gearbox over the rear axle.

GT racing design cues include the large black spoiler to keep the rear wheels planted, the pronounced rear diffuser and wheels held on by a central single nut.

The Cupra GT has a muscular and distinctive body employing Seat's 'Auto emoción' design philosophy.
Access to the GT is provided by gull wing doors.

The GT cars have always been recognised for being the most fascinating and seductive. These cars combine power and speed with striking design like no others.

Without a doubt, the SEAT Cupra GT belongs to this class of cars. Designers at he SEAT Design Centre in Sitges used their full creative potential and developed the Cupra GT without being conditioned by the parameters that must be observed in any production model project. From a side view, the "Dynamic Line" can be seen on the Cupra GT, a curved line created by Walter de'Silva, SEAT Design director, when he designed the Salsa concept car. Lending character to the side image of the vehicle, this line runs from the front, discreetly over the front wheelguard and descends gradually until the robust rear pillar.
