The second model to be displayed by Seat at the 2012 Wörthersee event, next to the Leon Super Copa , is the Ibiza SC Trophy. The SC Trophy is based on the new generation of the standard Ibiza . It is priced at 31,500 Euro (about $40K at the current exchange rates) and has been described as the ideal starting machine for amateur racing drivers.
The new Ibiza SC Trophy is powered by a 1.4 liter TSI engine that delivers a total of 180 HP and is mated to a seven-speed DSG transmission operated from the steering wheel. The engine has been combined with a modified oil sump, a powerful brake system, and racing suspension running on 18-inch wheels housed under noticeably flared wheel arches.
The interior drops all the "unnecessary" elements from the production model and provides only data truly relevant to racing drivers. The interior is painted in a special grey paint finish combined with fluorescent orange on the mirror casings, wheels, and interior roll cage.
The Seat Ibiza SC Trophy can be driven in single-brand race series.
