1999 Seat Formula Concept

The engine is mounted centrally on an aluminium chassis, built using the most advanced technology. The aluminium extrusions are linked, not welded, in order to create maximum rigidity and strength with minimum weight.

The whole structure is enclosed in a form-hugging body of composite materials. The Formula is equipped with active aerodynamic and cooling systems: the rear spoiler rises automatically above 50 km/h, increasing road-grip, whilst the front air intakes are adjustable to optimise cooling.
