Cupra e-Racer: ready to hit the track

MORE RIGID AND GLUED TO the ROAD – The Cupra, the brand of Seat that combines the performance and electrification with a style that will appeal to the young, has unveiled the new Cupra and-Racer, the model that will participate in the Pure ETCR, the league is a multi-brand for tourism and electric, with the official drivers Mattias Ekström and Jordi Gené. The Cupra and-Racer 2020 was created on the chassis of the new generation of Cupra Leon, which, compared to the previous one, is more hard. The base of the body is of the series; bumper, side skirts, wheel arch and wing have been specially redesigned. To increase the aerodynamic efficiency elements have been added such as the front splitter.

THE POWER is NOT LACKING – TO push the Cupra and-Racer 2020 there are four electric motors, giving a total capacity of 679 HP, able to snap the 0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and achieve 270 km/h of maximum speed. Engines that are powered by a battery that weighs 500 kg (with 6.270 cells), the structure of which has been suitably reinforced, to improve its housing inside of the car. The engineers have also worked on the security in the event of an accident, trying to ensure a greater resistance in case of impact. A new distribution, a refrigeration system is improved, which makes it more efficient in charging times (you can do a “full” 50-minute), and a manager of the electronics of the accumulator magazine, should ensure performance and race durability.
