Cupra UrbanRebel Racing, the extreme concept ahead of the production model


The all-electric vehicle, rated at up to 435 horsepower, combines durability and performance with the exciting aesthetics of the virtual world

Cupra has presented the UrbanRebel Racing Concept on the Rallycross course of the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, the most extreme version of the UrbanRebel Concept, which anticipates the future production model.

The ‘racing’ model has been put to the test by
Adrian Tambaythe brand new champion of the FIA ​​​​ETCR, the Electric Touring Car World Cup, where the Frenchman triumphed this season behind the wheel of the CUPRA e-Racer.

Tambay had the opportunity to drive the UrbanRebel Racing Concept at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya Rallycross, where the penultimate round of the 2022 World Cup season for this specialty was held at the end of October.

on a tour
1,135 kilometers long combining asphalt and dirt in a ratio of 60%-40%, the French driver was able to exploit the potential of the 100% electric model.

“It’s been a great experience. The Cupra UrbanRebel Racing Concept has been
a real racing car which performs like a charm on the Rallycross circuit. His acceleration is incredible and his behavior in these challenging conditions is also spectacular, I had a great time!” said Tambay.

“Cupra shows once again that electric racing cars can be just as much fun – or even more fun – than traditional combustion cars. With models like this, the e-Racer or the Tavascan XE, it’s clear that it’s a leader in the electric league,” he added.

The drive system
fully electric The Cupra UrbanRebel Racing Concept produces 340 hp (250 kW) continuously and peaks at 435 hp (320 kW). As a result, the UrbanRebel Racing accelerates from standstill to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds, comparable to that of the CUPRA e-Racer that Tambay competed in this year’s FIA ETCR.

The UrbanRebel Racing Concept does
one step ahead also in sustainability, as it integrates advanced recycled polymers and biomaterials. In addition, 3D printing manufacturing methods and parametrically designed 3D fabrics improve performance and perceived quality.

While Cupra experiments to the limit with electric vehicles, it also wins on the track. To the Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships won in the 2022 FIA ETCR, as well as the four victories achieved during the season, we must add
the first victory for the ABT XE team at Extreme E, which took place a few weeks ago in Uruguay. The brand is participating in this competition with the Tavascan XE, a competition SUV with 550 hp (400 kW) power.
