Day for the track: we drive a Cupra Formentor VZ5 of 390 hp!

The last day of his stay in Spain, at the invitation of the Cupra brand, was reserved for the latest model in the range – Formentor. Several engines have been reserved for this crossover, ranging from 1.5 TSI engines with 150 hp all the way up to 2.0 TSI engines of 190, 245 and 310 horsepower. The most powerful has a 4Drive with all-wheel drive.

However, what Cupra is preparing and what will yet be available in the market is the Formentor VZ5. This designation says that under the hood is a five-cylinder 2.5 TSI engine with 390 horsepower and 480 Nm of maximum torque.

Most importantly, the VZ5 will be produced in just 7,000 copies, meaning exclusivity is fully guaranteed.

Tire condition after a few laps on the track

The standard is huge brakes with a diameter of 18 inches, while the wheels are 20 inches. Especially for this model, a drift mode is reserved, which we had the opportunity to try out on a special polygon.

However, the most attractive ride is on the Castellolí track, where we could drive the car to the limit. Regardless of the fact that it is a crossover, there is no tilting in corners, which is, among other things, due to the additional lowering of the body compared to all other versions… Suffice it to say that from 0 to 100 km / h arrives in just 4.2 seconds…
