Forgotten concepts: 1999 Seat Formula

The Seata model range is not too wide. The offer is still limited mainly to Leon and Ibiza and there is a shortage of a strictly sports car. Several years ago it could have been quite different.

The Seata model range is not too wide. The offer is still limited mainly to Leon and Ibiza and there is a shortage of a strictly sports car. Several years ago it could have been quite different.

In 1999, the brand presented a very interesting concept called Formula. It was supposed to be a vehicle that would make driving fun and friendly in everyday use. Unfortunately, only few people managed to check it on their own skin.

The car did not have a roof, its doors were opened like in Lamborghini, it had only two places and was painted in a bright green colour, and the whole thing was terribly small. As a result, Formula was very interesting and aggressive car.

The interior of the vehicle was minimalist. You can even say that the dashboard has not been installed there. The driver has a steering wheel and clocks in front of him, but the passenger sees only a few pipes. There is no air conditioning or radio.

The heart of the vehicle was a centrally located 2 litre petrol unit. It generated 240 horses and 295 Nm of torque. The transmission is based on a sequential 6-speed transmission with blades at the steering wheel.

It is also worth mentioning that the car also had an active rear spoiler, which automatically extended above 50 km/h and the weight of the car was only 900 kilograms. Such a combo allowed the small Seat to accelerate to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds, and the maximum speed was 146 mph. No modern car would have been created with such performance.
