£35,000 for the fastest Seat ever. People scoffed. And now it’s sold out.

Yes, there’s just 24 coming to the UK, and finding 24 dedicated hot Seat fans probably wasn’t that difficult. But it’s hard to ignore the strength of its competitors: the Honda Civic Type R is just as fast and considerably cheaper, while in-house rival the Volkswagen Golf R is faster and cheaper.

“We’ve simply been blown away by the amount of interest it’s generated,” said Seat UK’s director Richard Harrison, not holding back.

“I’m delighted, and not the least bit surprised, that the UK-bound cars all found homes in such a short space of time. I’m sure their lucky owners will enjoy many years of great driving in this exclusive series.”

If you’re keen, we’re sure a handful of examples will appear on the secondhand market for inflated prices soon after deliveries begin this month (which begs the question: just how much will people be willing to pay for a souped-up Leon?).

Just 799 Leon Cupra R models will be sold worldwide – in case you’re really desperate to get your hands on one, with all UK-spec models powered by the same 310hp 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine as the Golf R.

That’s paired with a six-speed manual (nope, you can’t have DSG) with power going through the front wheels (hence its 0.7-second 0-62mph shortfall compared to the Golf – 5.8 seconds compared to 5.1).

There’s a fancy sports exhaust system along with a rear spoiler which, Seat says, provides 20kg of downforce to aid traction. Brembo brakes will bring it to the stop, while there’s no shortage of external upgrades to tell the world you’ve spent £35,000 on a Leon. We’re talking carbonfibre detailing, ever-so-slightly flared arches and 19-inch black alloy wheels.

Buyers only get a choice of two colours: grey or black. Inside, meanwhile, has bits of Alcantara, front bucket seats and various copper highlight around the cabin.

Leon Goretzka agrees to join Bayern Munich .
Liverpool look to have missed out on a deal to sign Leon Goretzka on a free transfer as, according to Christian Falk of SportBILD, the player has agreed to join Bayern Munich. Twitter: Aufgrund vieler Nachfragen: Leon #Goretzka und @FCBayern sind sich über einen Wechsel einig. Vor der Unterschrift m… https://t.co/2xi2wSKAMG (@cfbayern) Liverpool were interested in signing the German international and they were hoping that he would follow in the footsteps of Joel Matip by leaving Schalke to move to Anfield, but the player had decided to stay in the Bundesliga and join Munich. It was reported a few weeks ago that the 22-year-old was close to joining the German champions but Liverpool were still hoping to get a deal done, but it looks like they were unable to convince him to make a move to Merseyside. Goretzka will officially become a Bayern player in the summer, but until then, he’ll remain at Schalke and try to help them secure a place in the Champions League. They currently sit in third place in the Bundesliga, but is a very tight competition this season with just four points separating them from 10th placed Hannover 96.
