Vibrant Spanish car manufactuer SEAT is bringing some much-needed heat to the 78th Geneva International Motor Show with the unveiling of a landmark concept car.The SportCoup Bocanegra prototype marks the start of an ambitious product initiative stretching over the next few years which will include the important launch of the new-generation Ibiza as well as a new upper-medium family saloon, due to make its public debut in `09.Although US consumers aren't lucky enough to drive SEAT's, the company makes some of the best hatchbacks rivaling the VW Golf and Audi A3 in Europe. This concept exhibits several tuner elements as well drawing our attention especially its aggressive exterior styling and sporty interior.Using the latest technology at the recently-inaugurated SEAT Design Centre in Martorell, SEAT's designers and engineers have created a mini-sized concept car featuring ultra-modern, striking styling and showcasing a host of intriguing features inside and out.

The former Lamborghini design chief has created a compact three-door body boasting a clear coupe-like silhouette that is given obvious added emphasis by its semi-transparent black front end. SEAT aficionados may even spot that this car offers a nod to the original `Bocanegra', the legendary 1970s SEAT 1200 Sport.

Key features of the `08 Bocanegra - literally translated as `black mouth' - include a clear evolution of SEAT's familiar, dynamic line design trait; vast panoramic sunroof; eye-catching door-mirror-mounted side indicator repeaters; and overtly sporty rear shoulders.Top-notch quality touches appear throughout, from the striking LED light clusters to the elegant door mirror mounts.

Inside, minute attention to detail is the key and the centre console, where the climate control system can be found, is a very clear example of this. Its design has been specially created for this model, and the vents feature special mesh grilles that regulate and direct the airflow.Under the hood lies a 1.4 liter TSI twin-charger (turbocharged and supercharged) gas engine linked to a state-of-the-art seven-speed DSG gearbox endowing the SportCoup with both potent performance and enviable refinement.
