The SEAT Bocanegra is a three-door supermini concept car, built by the Spanish automaker SEAT and designed by former Lamborghini designer Luc Donckerwolke who at the moment had been assigned SEAT's design director.

It was presented at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show, sporting a more aggressive image as a showcase for the fourth-generation SEAT Ibiza, which was introduced in May 2008 at the Madrid Motor Show. The name Bocanegra - standing for "Black Mouth" in Spanish - derives from the whole front bumper made out of black-painted plastic with the headlights encased in clear perspex, tracing back to a previous SEAT model from the 1970s, the 1200 Sport which at the time had been nicknamed Bocanegra because of its black plastic front end.

It has a 1.4-liter TSI engine giving 180 bhp (134 kW; 182 PS), and a newly presented seven-speed direct shift gearbox.
