the german SportAuto magazin did it in 8:14 with that car with the performance pack. So 7:58 sounds like their dream :)

Renault wants to have the fastest FWD production car in the world so their ambition is to beat this time.

Im glad that big producers of cheaper sports cars getting in to positive (i hope) war for laptimes :)

Renault Sport run a projet named "under 8" with cooperation with Michelin, Ohlins and Akrapovic to beat shit out of Seat with their Megane RS!

Glad to see

That's funny how people will treat video as just commercial purpose (helicopters and stuff), but at the same time a huge P1 commercial with helicopters, cinematics, etc and with NO laptime as an evidence "yeah P1 should be faster than 918".

@Piorun the hundredth is the turn of this type of test, but you only think that the Seat time is fishy, and the rest is ok...
Brand like Chevrolet, Renault, Nissan used even bucket seats and five-point harness, and thats all is visible on the recordings.
I agree that kinde of tests are made to make possible the best time even with little (or more) help, with professional drivers, and that is nonsense to compare other slow magazine tests, but I can't see any bad thing of the Seat test to other more fishy tests.

Its hard to belive for me that this time is 100% legit.
NR laptime is now just a COMMERCIAL it could rise sales high.
But who is to check if car was stock or not at time attack?
We are at the point when we need some kind of OFFICIAL COMMISION which should check car before laptime and CONFIRM that it is complete stock on stock tires.

Big companies tend to manipulate the results. Its happen even with GT-R Nismo and many other cars.

VW Scirocco R with DSG did 8:30.00 on NR, with 203 bhp/tonne compared to 208 bhp/tone in Seat...

This time smell fishy. Even with the best driver. And the helicopter flying around filming this? What is this shit about? Thisis just commercial, there is no prove that it was stock, and i want that prove beceause this time is too radical for this car in stock configuration

@BR2+
You are just american moron who know nothing about automotive industry.
You dont know anything about Jordi Gene, just a legend in european motorsport... you do not believe in the superiority of the Seat on Renault, Seat which has in its concern such brands as VW, Audi, Porshce, Lamborghini, Bugatti... Renault/Dacia is ****n joke compared to those brands.

BTW. In the same way Renault, Nissan, Chevrolet, Honda and any other "recorder" measure times as Seat did.

If you noticed in the video, the car was fully camoflauged, So id say that was a pre production prototype, So I wouldn't add it just yet, Not until the full blown production version is in fullness.

And as fast/faster then an RS%/CTS-V/Carrera S/Corvette C6/Boxter S/DBS/4C..?...Yeah im gonna call BS on that..

But I dunno anything bout the driver, And not too much about the car, But a full 10s faster then the previous Fwd record, In a Seat?...does anyone else believe that time seems a bit fishy?...

Theres also the Upcoming Civic Type R, Which Honda has stetd they wanted to make the fastest Fwd car, And Maybe the new Scirocco R, And upcoming Focus RS, And whatever Renault and Citroen have to offer.

If that was made 100% stock that is more than very impressive.

Look at the cars that new Cupra is between. New 981 BoxsterS, 450 hp RS5, Porsche 911 Carrera S 355 hp. Driven by the one of the best drivers. 5 seconds faster than 900kg mid engine 4C. Shit just got real.
