This build began with the intention of buying a standard family hatchback to keep as it was “the family car”. Clearly this did not happen at all! I bought the car from a Seat dealership in 2015 and only a year later visited EMP Performance who ran the Leon up to stage 2+. In 2018 TSR Performance got their hands on the Leon and between us we built a 4wd 577BHP monster which I ran daily for some time.
I visited RND Motorsport, local to me, to take a look at a few running issues we had and Dan worked his magic to then create a smoother non meth dependent 601BHP. The Leon has featured in VWG Magazine and also on Officially Gassed YouTube channel. The spec of this car is unreal and still undergoing modifications having a rollcage and full SuperCopa Racing body kit fitted.
