Simulator turns stimulator in surprise Seat Leon Cupra video


ONE DAY, all driving games will be like this.

Two unsuspecting Seat enthusiasts (come on, we have to believe they’re not in on it) think they’re going to experience the new Leon Cupra 280 in a conventional simulator. The model is the fastest production car in the manufacturer’s history, capable of 0-62mph in 5.8sec, so you can imagine their excitement.

Except the simulator isn’t quite what they expected. We won’t spoil the surprise, save to say it was best they were totally clueless.

Our apologies for their brief, unscripted reaction at the end.
