You know that from birthdays: You often give yourself the best gifts. This is also the case with Cupra.  The  sports brand from Seat is three years old and makes its customers happy with a new top model. © www.de24.news

 The  Cupra Formentor VZ5 gets a five-cylinder heart from Audi with an output of 390 hp.

 The  model name as such comes from Cape Formentor on Mallorca.

 The  Cupra Formentor VZ5 will be quite exclusive as the edition of the vehicle is limited to 7,000 units. Its unit combines direct injection and turbocharging to achieve the peak output of 390 hp between 5,700 and 7,000 rpm, while the maximum torque of 480 Nm is available from 2,250 rpm.

It also delivers a rhythmic and unique engine sound from the four copper-colored exhaust pipes. © www.de24.news

 The  engine is known and loved by car enthusiasts, but the cooling system has received additional attention from Cupra.

 The  2.5-liter engine is coupled with a seven-speed DSG. With this combination, the Cupra Formentor VZ5 reaches 100 km / h in just 4.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 250 km / h. © www.de24.news

 The  VZ5 is 10 millimeters lower than the Cupra Formentor VZ with 310 hp.

 The  adaptive chassis control (DCC) with 15 levels of damping adjustment continuously offers the best setting for each wheel, depending on the driving conditions and the driving mode selected by the driver.

 The  Formentor VZ5 offers various driving modes that can be easily selected using the Cupra mode selection button on the steering wheel. But that’s not all: © www.de24.news

 The  4Drive all-wheel drive system is also on board. So you can see up to here: © www.de24.news

 The  differences to the Audi RS Q3 are not very big, apart from the 10 hp less power.

 The  VZ5 gets more carbon and a specific bonnet. Its lines are intended to direct the eye to the black radiator grille with the new color-coordinated frame in Sport Black Matt.

Further down the bumper gets a modified grill. Below the headlights in Cupra’s signature design are two air intakes that emphasize the vehicle’s more aggressive face. © www.de24.news

 The  carbon fiber front splitter on the side diverts the air into the charge air cooler, thereby improving cooling.

 The  VZ5-specific rear diffuser made of carbon fiber and the diagonal quadruple exhaust pipes with copper decoration characterize the rear view. Finally, the Cupra Formentor VZ5 bears the Cupra lettering in black chrome and a new, exclusive VZ5 logo, also in black chrome.

 The  design of the VZ5 is intensified with the addition of the latest color, Taiga Gray. A unique color specially designed for this limited edition. In addition to this new exterior color, the Cupra Formentor VZ5 will also be available in Midnight Black, Magnetic Tech Matt and Petrol Blue Matt.

 The  so-called CUPBucket seats – optionally available in petrol blue or black leather – are located deep in the interior and offer a more ergonomic, sporty seating position.

In addition, the Formentor VZ5 will also be available with an exclusive interior – progressive graphics in Dinamica Black, perforated with a copper-colored background, rounded off by brown nappa leather seats – that match the exclusive exterior color Taiga Gray.

Other highlights in the interior include the Cupra steering wheel, 12-inch infotainment and connectivity solutions. What the Formentor VZ5 will cost has not yet been announced. For comparison: An Audi RS Q3 starts at 64,000 euros, which is why we would guess around 55,000 euros.
