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 Out front the factory SEAT grill has been replaced by a badge less matte black mesh unit.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.
Press release after the jump.
Seat turned the Leon a bit sportier by giving him a new facelift. Modest design adjustments give the brawny Spaniard a more dynamic appearance. JE DESIGN follows this line and turns the modified model into a thoroughbred sports car. At the same time as the new Leon is introduced to the market, the refiner also offers his entire Leon facelift programme.
Especially the entire aerodynamics kit is responsible for this metamorphosis. The front spoiler (299 euros including VAT), the side skirts (299 euros) and the rear apron attachment in carbon look (349 euros) give the brawny Spaniard a significantly sportier appearance.
When the aerodynamics kit is not enough yet, you can add the rear wing (459 euros) and a matt black grill with a grid insert (119 euros) which shows no Seat nameplate. Matching headlights masks (89 euros) are also available. They give the Leon a fierce look. A special feature is the hood scoop with air inlet blinds (149 euros). They make every JE-DESIGN Leon unique.

The especially produced wheels Multispoke are visually and technically a highlight in car refinement. JE DESIGN offers the wheel sets in 17, 18 and 19 inches in shadow-silver and matt black with a silver rim (entire wheel set 8x19 inches with 225/35 R 19 Y-wheels starting from 2,810 euros). In order to place the wheels deep into their casing, sport springs lower the Leon by 35 millimetres at the front and 15 millimetres at the back (159 euros). For individual lowering up to 65 millimetres, the refiner offers a coilover kit (979 euro).
JE DESIGN offers two ways to obtain the matching sound to this look: Either the exhaust system ends in a stainless steel centre double pipe (339 euros) or altogether four stainless steel pipes (two on the left and two on the right) render an earthy sound (899 euros). JE DESIGN offers the matching rear apron attachment for both models.

JE DESIGN turned the unobtrusive Leon into a self-confident car. Moreover the refiner confirms that it is one of the fastest companies on the market. Immediately after the car is introduced, the entire programme can be obtained as well.
