Engine 1.8 litre 4 cylinder

The attractive Seat Tango roadster was first revealed at the 2001 Frankfurt Motor Show. The Tango concept was designed to recreate the elements of sports cars from the '50s and '60s without resorting to retro gimmicks for inspiration.

Under the curvaceous aluminium body, the Seat Tango is supported by a sophisticated tubular framework - which is actually a development of the World Rally Car safety cage.

Mounted up front is a 1.8 litre turbocharged 4 cylinder engine developing 180 horsepower and running power through a 6 speed manual gearbox. This gives the Tango a top speed of 145 mph and a 0-60 time of 7 seconds.

Central to the Seat Tango's design is a high degree of safety. ABS, electronic stability control and traction control help to keep the car on the road. And if that fails, twin front-airbags, side-airbags, a progressive deformation structure and a central passenger cell help to cushion the impact.

The distinctive exterior styling of the Seat Tango is complemented by the use of interior materials on the storage pods behind the passenger compartment. At the same time the metallic grey exterior color of the Tango features heavily in the interior. This serves to break down the borders between interior and exterior design, the two become one.

While the seat is fixed in the interior, a comfortable driving position can be easily achieved by altering the position of the steering column, instrument panel, and pedals from a control on the center console.

Unfortunately, while the Seat Tango was an attractive, distinctive and well thought out sports car, Seat decided not to put the car into production and it remains a concept.
