    Cupra SC 1395 kg

    Stock 215 bhp/ton

    Stage 1, (350-370 bhp) 251-265 bhp/ton

    Stage 2 (370-400 bhp) 265-287 bhp/ton

    Cupra 5 door 1431 kg

    Stock 210 bhp/ton

    Stage 1, (350-370 bhp) 245-259 bhp/ton

    Stage 2 (370-400 bhp) 259-280 bhp/ton

    FWD Cupra ST 1440 KG

    Stock 208 bhp/ton

    Stage 1 (350-370 bhp) 243-257 bhp/ton

    Stage 2 (370-400 bhp) 257-278 bhp/ton

    M2 1570 kg

    Standard 365 bhp = 232 bhp/ton
    Evo 258 bhp/ton

    Rumour has it if you buy a standard M2, you get the full fat 405 bhp engine anyway, so the 232 bhp/ton figure is likely underestimating reality

    When moving and traction isn't really an issue, power to weight is the biggest factor when it comes to acceleration.

    A stage 2 Cupra should match or even out accelerate an M2 from a rolling start. It's just physics.

    A tuned M2 will blow a Cupra into the weeds.
