Je Design revealed a new tuning package for the 2010 Seat Leon FR. The package upgrades both performance and styling upgrades and is available for both petrol and diesel versions.
For the petrol version, the TFSI-engine has been upgraded to deliver a total of 270 hp and 355 NM. As a result, the 0 to 60 mph sprint is now made in 6.2 seconds. For the diesel version, the tuner has added a Can-Tronic boosts that updates the output to 204 hp and the torque to 380 NM. The 0 to 60 mph sprint went down to 7.6 seconds.
The aerodynamics package includes: bold headlight blends, LED daytime running lights, front spoiler with the double lip, side skirts, rear skirt attachment, center diffuser attachment, four-pipe exhaust system and 19inch wheels.
The German tuning firm JE Design has a long history modifying every member of the Volkswagen Family, all the way from Audi to Skoda. Well the small design house has just released details on their latest customization package for the Spanish built Seat Leon Cupra, a car that won the FIA World Touring Car Championship outright in 2008 with a TDI power plant. The new package from JE Design adds a bit of that attitude from the race car to the ordinary lion’s performance and styling.
On the outside JE keeps things simple with a straight forward ground effects package starting off with a front spoiler to close off the bottom of the Cupra’s wide mouth front bumper. This if followed by a pair of sculpted side skirts that bring the body closer to the ground visually and add some extra scoops to the Seat’s body. Out back JE Design incorporates a rear skirt attachment and diffuser inserts with a wild wing on top to transform the Cupra into a truly hot hatch.
Not wanting to leave the Leon all show and no go, so JE upgraded TSFI power plant to make a maximum out of 285 HP and 283 lb-ft of torque. This allows the Seat Leon Cupra to go from 0 to 60 MPH in only 5.9 seconds, half a second faster then the factory version, while the car’s top speed is raised to a tested 162 MPH.
The artisans from J.E. Design have unleashed their paintbrushes on another one of the European exclusive members of the Volkswagen Family. The SEAT Leon recently underwent some reconstructive surgery in order to give the Spanish sports car a facelift. J.E. takes the entire process a step further with a complete reworking of the Leon’s exterior.
The tuners started out with a ground effects kit consisting of a set of side skirts as well as new front and rear aprons that bring the body closer to the road. Out front the factory SEAT grill has been replaced by a badge less matte black mesh unit. Above the driver’s head sits a rally inspired roof scoop which is quite possibly more about form than function, and finishing off the bodywork, J.E. has added a very racy rear wing.
J.E. equips the Leon with their signature rim in sizes ranging from 17 inches to 19 inches in diameter. Wheel gap is decreased thanks to a set of sport lowering springs, but even more ride height adjustment is available with a set of J.E. Design coil-overs. Finishing off the tuning package is a free flowing stainless steel exhaust that gives off a distinguished roar to let people know that something special is approaching. As soon as the new Leon hits the market, J.E. will be waiting with their aero kit.
Diesel cars are very successful in Europe, maybe it is because they have a great fuel range, maybe it is because they don’t pollute as much as they used to or maybe it is because in the European Union, the less refined crude product costs a lot less than standard unleaded gasoline. These are all good reasons why people here in the U.S. should think about test-driving a diesel. Especially if it has been modified by the Volkswagen specialists J.E. Design.
The tuners from Leingarten decided to have a go at a TDI powered version of the latest hot hatch from Wolfsburg, a TDI powered VW Scirocco. Starting out to reestablish diesel’s good name, the tuners came up with an engine program to raise the output of the 140 HP version to 180 HP and increase the thrust from 235 lb-ft to 295 lb-ft of torque. For the more hardcore tuning enthusiast, the 2.0 TDI CR program takes the 170 HP from factory and increases it to 205 HP and increases twisting power to 302 lb-ft of torque. This model can go from 0 to 60 MPH in around 7 seconds flat and hit a top speed of 142 MPH. The power units retail for around 1200 and 1500 Euro each.
The J.E. Design body kit can be yours for only 900 Euro, but the funky door hinges will set you back 1500 E.U. denominations. Sitting pretty under the wide rear end is a new sport inspired stainless steel muffler and the Sky Rocket sits about an inch and a half lower to the ground thanks to a new set of springs that work with the factory shocks in order to eliminate the wheel gap between the Scirocco’s wide fenders and 19 by 8 inch multi spoke rims and tires. In order to recreate what you see before you it would cost around 8000 Euro, that’s a pretty penny to pay for a whole lot of style. Maybe if VW decided to sell this car in the U.S. you could spend some of your tax incentive for going green on the kit.
The German tuners JE Design modify all things from the Volkswagen Group. This time it’s given Europe’s econo-car the Seat Exeo a unique aero kit, quad tipped exhaust and a set of 19 inch rollers. Transforming the rather bland Spanish sedan into an aggressively tuned sports car.
The tuners who specialize in everything Volkswagen, JE DESIGN, have just released two new wheels. The Multispoke is a racy thin-spoked design and is available in colors ranging from matte black to pearl white. Whereas the SUV-Select rim is intended for larger applications.
The German tuners JE DESIGN modify everything in the Volkswagen family. This time they chose a close cousin, the Porsche Cayenne and made the the PROGRESSOR. The most noticeable feature of this car is the broader stance than the typical Cayenne. The body was widened by 60 mm at the front, 80 mm at the back and given a set of huge 22-inch rims.
The new kit from the German tuner comes with a new front lip spoiler with integrated LED lights, new side sills, a rear skirt with integrated air diffuser, 22-inch 5-spoke wheels, and a suspension system that lowers the car with up to 35 mm.
Unlike the Edo car, JE Design doesn’t make performance parts, so there’s no extra power in this car. But just like the Edo car, with almost 5000 pounds of SUV on the move, there’s not much incentive to going fast.
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.
Although Je Design already unveiled its customization program for the Euro-only Seat Leon, the German tuning company updated today its kit for the Leon. The new program includes a carbon foil in various color serving as an alternative paint, new daytime running LEDs, and a new ECU tweaking boosting the 2.0-liter diesel engine from 140 hp to 175 hp and 405 Nm of torque.
Customers who want more can choose from five wheel-sets, measuring 17, 18 and 19 inches fitted with 225/35 R 19 Y tires. Regarding the old kit, everything remained the same: re-designed front bumper, side skirts and a custom built rear bumper with integrated 4-pipe exhaust system.
