The Cupra Born is set for a debut in the first half of 2021, which means testing should be entering its final stages. This prototype spotted by carscoops photographers in Spain still features a full body wrap hiding the final model details until then.

I am curious about the body wrap. What is the purpose of having it be black and white? Is this to hide the car's body and detailing from the general public? I never understood why they did this with new models but I have spotted a number of them over the last 5 or so years so it must be a common practice!

Saw two yesterday. White in Lichfield near Whittington barracks and grey on M6 toll between 1700 and 1800. Getting popular.

Have seen 2 on the road since getting mine 5 weeks ago, but saw one while on holiday in Norway yesterday.
Lots of ID3s here and other EVs.

Currently on holiday in Salou (not far from barcelona) and i have seen quite a few, seem quite popular out here and rightly so.

I saw one for the first time here in Suffolk yesterday, in Aurora Blue. My daughter was disappointed because ours won't be the first in the area now, but I pointed out ours will be a 72 reg as it's being picked up on 3 September :)

Saw my first at the weekend, parked in the VIP car park at Hardwick Live, Sedgefield on Saturday.

Nice to see first Cupra Born in my area Sandhurst in Berkshire. Saw a Aurora Blue around 10am today. Sadly no news when my wife will get her 77kw V3.

At M40 Southbound Warwick Services saw a V3 with 20 inch Firestorm wheels with red body colour. A bit of self indulgence as after my wife got her V3 with Firestorm last June, we had not seen one on the road.

Had mine since Jan '23, but a bit further north in Tamworth. You're right though, I haven't seen any others with Firestorm wheels.
