Cupra UrbanReel Concept revealed as an urban(?) race EV

Look at out this electrical race auto principle from Cupra. Officially named the Cupra UrbanReel Notion, this multi-colored, bewinged race auto is Cupra’s eyesight for a potential electrical city car.

And sure, it does really feel counterintuitive to use a race auto as your eyesight for an “urban car,” but that doesn’t transform the fact that it’s a wildly amazing style. It will not matter a great deal to U.S. auto buyers due to the fact this Cupra will not ever be marketed here, but Cupra suggests this auto will encourage a potential car established to start in 2025. We’re promised that “the road edition will mix astonishing style and wonderful dynamics.” It will also be based mostly on VW’s MEB platform.

But again to the principle auto at hand. This Cupra is quite the pointy and intense fellow. Its gigantic wing out again is not possible to ignore, and Cupra suggests it was encouraged by digital racing autos with somewhat outlandish wings. The auto by itself is a hatchback, but even so, the wing however doesn’t adhere up a great deal more previously mentioned the roof. Its red brake light-weight spanning the width presents it some excess aggression, and the vast hips and huge diffuser incorporate to the glimpse.

The race auto theme proceeds up front. You have a giant splitter and a “grille” with tons of very small Cupra logos sculpted into it. Far more pointy and protruding aero elements proceed together the facet, and there’s even a scoop on the roof — Cupra doesn’t demonstrate the operate of this. Nevertheless, Cupra does reveal that this principle auto is speedy. It is capable of 335 horsepower, but an overboost operate places max output at 429 horsepower. We suspect it’s a dual-motor setup, but Cupra doesn’t say. It is also capable of jogging a -62 mph sprint in just 3.2 seconds, creating it a significantly speedy EV.

If you are in Munich for the Motor Clearly show, you’ll be able to see the UrbanReel Notion in the flesh there. Until eventually then, delight in the vibrant pics.
