“The Ibiza has always been the heart of SEAT – a young, dynamic car with an emotional design, a good head for the practical things in life and excellent value for money. At Wörthersee, we are celebrating the anniversary of our most successful model with the unique Ibiza CUPSTER, not to mention the exceptionally well-equipped 30 Years edition – and, of course, with a great programme.” said SEAT S.A. President Jürgen Stackmann.

Apart from being lower and wider than the Cupra model that it’s based on, the Cupster loses its roof and gets a low wrap-around strip window replacing the front windscreen. The seats are also placed 180 mm lower, to accommodate to the low, topless greenhouse. The exterior is completed with a set of 18-inch wheels.
