Seat is known for providing economical cars for the markets its sold to (not the U.S.) So if you bought one of these Volkswagens-on-a-budget, the German tuner JE Design is betting that you have a little money left over to customize the car. They have now introduced a customization kit for the Ibiza Sports Coupe 3-door and 5-door.
The new package features a front spoiler, sport radiator grill, center-mounted trapezoidal tailpipe, headlight eyebrows, side skirts, roof spoiler and a rear bumper apron attachment with carbon look. The biggest visual element is the LSD wing doors, which open in a Lamborghini-like manner.
Press release after the jump.
Just as JE DESIGN put the finishing touches on the new Seat Ibiza 5-door right after its premier, the tuning specialist once again proves itself to be one of the fastest in the business with the new 3-door Seat Ibiza SportsCoupe, which just came onto the market. The 3-door, like the 5-door, has its own program.
Anyone who is looking for a more individualized, sportier appearance can’t help but find the right body kit with JE DESIGN. JE DESIGN will deliver its components, as always, in industry-quality. That means that the material is made of the highest grade ABS and that all of the parts are custom-fit by CNC machines. A kit includes a front spoiler that comes ready for speed, a sport radiator grill, headlight eyebrows for a “mean look”, side skirts that make for a powerful profile, a roof edge spoiler and a rear apron attachment with a carbon look that makes for a perfect visual balance to the other parts. All parts are available for the practical Seat Ibiza 5-door and for the cutting-edge, sporty 3-door Seat Ibiza SportsCoupe.
The red Ibiza 5-door (see images), also comes with LSD wing door fittings, which now make the front doors open upwards, providing for quite a show whenever the driver or the passenger gets in or out. On top of that, the rear is adorned with a center-mounted trapezoidal tailpipe made of stainless steel. The roof and parts of the front end are covered with matt black acrylic sheets with a “Bocanegra look”.
For a good combination with the original shock absorbers, the low sports suspension springs offer more agility, making the new Ibiza 35 mm lower (available for 3- and 5-door models; used on the blue Ibiza Sports Coupe, see images). This suspension system also improves the appearance; the small-sized Seat prowls even lower and more forbiddingly over the asphalt. Anyone looking for something sportier will find it in the KW coil-over suspension made of stainless steel (used in the red Ibiza 5-door), which makes it up to 65 mm lower.
Changing the wheels is a fundamental part of tuning a vehicle. JE DESIGN, as part of its Ibiza program, offers the sporty and elegant “Multispoke” wheel design in the form of
complete wheel sets. JE DESIGN offers these sets in either 7”x17” ET 35 or 7.5”x18” ET 35 with tires 215/40 R17 or 215/35 R 18. The customer has an additional choice between "shadow silver" or “black matt / lip silver” finish.
If the little Spaniard’s performance needs to reach an even higher level, JE DESIGN can provide even more. A performance enhancement for the 1.9 TDI to 130 hp is available immediately. This allows the little Spaniard to race at a proud speed of 198 km/h (series: 186 km/h) and to accelerate in 10.0 seconds (series: 11.1 sec.) from 0 to 100 km/h. In addition, the drive is improved significantly at low and middle rpm ranges through increased torque.
