Glamorous ‘Hips-Don’t-Lie’ pop star, Shakira, has helped SEAT design a unique Leon Cupra as a competition prize, in order to raise money for her own charity.
Before we spill the nitti gritty, courtesy of Easier Motoring, we want to mention how lovely this car is. Check out the photos and see for yourself. The color is fantastic and the lines and interior and beautiful! Where can we sign up?!
According to Easier Motoring, At a press conference in the Max Schmeling Halle in Berlin at the weekend – officially kicking off her European tour – SEAT and Shakira revealed the special Cupra that will benefit the star’s charity, the Fundación Pies Descalzos (Bare Feet Foundation).
The car, aptly named the Leon Pies Descalzos, is immediately identifiable by its striking lilac metallic paint, a colour also highlighted on several details inside. In addition, the interior features part-leather trim incorporating the Pies Descalzos logo. This emblem also graces the B-pillar, while polished black paint is used on the Cupra’s 18-inch alloy wheels.
SEAT announced its partnership with Shakira at the end of last year, a co-operation which involves supporting her European Tour, as well as her charity work. Her UK concert will also be the last venue of the tour, and will be held at Wembley Arena on 18th March.
‘The support for Pies Descalzos is very welcome,’ said Shakira. ‘The need for education and proper nutrition for the children in my home country of Colombia is very big and I trust that SEAT’s initiative will aid a lot.’
