    Well I haven't seen the latest VW report, but I don't think they've confirmed officially but it seems it's strongly suggested on the 7R forums

    You and me both, i waited to the Frankfurt show to see what news there was, , not a whisper , wich i found very odd. Then Evo mag done a small bit about no one at VW wanting to talk about the R400, then Ford dropped the Focus rs bomb, so i put me money down and ordered one.

    Ive had 1.8T for 2 years now but having a nice discount on CUPRA 290 I went for it last week. The manufacturing is a bit quicker now according to the dealer so hopefully here around April 2016.

    Now the waiting begins...

    Are you serious? That's a fe*king ugly car. In particular, the low hips of the Mk7 are a disaster, but actually there's not much else either to cheer for. Especially not with this CS joke, or compared with a Leon.

    Thanks for making my day. I actually peed a little when laughing to such a comment coming from someone in the UK....!

    Anyhow, I guess it's with good taste and a keen eye for design like it is with musicality. Some people simply don't have it...

    And Racer, if you ever change your mind, I'll be the first in line!

    They've used the 290 to refresh the Cupra promotion a bit so expect it to go quiet for a bit.

    Think facelift later this year which starts with the cooking models then onto facelift cupra time.

    A mk3 LCR in 18 months time would tempt me.

    to me the Cupra 290 is great news, it means the new facelifted Cupra R should break the 300 hp psychological barrier :) I know it's only 10 hp extra (or close to none in reality), but it sounds different (in a good way) :D
