The front spoiler with the enormous inlets (319 Euro including VAT) and the headlight masks (89 Euro) look ahead in a fierce way. With the new side skirts (two-part set for 299 Euro), the Cupra already presents its agility when it is still parked. The rear skirt attachment left and right (299 Euro) and the centre diffuser insert (99 Euro) as well as the mighty rear wing (459 Euro) with the sunk-in JE Design logo leave no doubt: this Seat is serious about it.
The vehicle turns into an absolute eye-catcher with the LED-daytime running lights (299 Euro) in the Dark-Line Design which are perfectly integrated into the front side blends above the fog lights.
JE Design increases the performance of the TSFI engine from 240 hp (177 kW) to 285 hp (210 kW). The maximum torque rises from 300 to 385 Newton metres. The optimisation of the motor management enables the Cupra to accelerate from zero to 100 kph (62 mph) in 5.9 seconds. This is half a second faster than the standard version. Also the maximum speed reaches a new mark: the tuned Seat achieves 261 kph (162 mph). Before this modification, it reached 247 kph (153 mph).
The performance increase for 1,499 Euro is delivered with a one-year warranty for the engine and drive. If desired, this warranty can be extended to two years. The matching sound is rendered by a four-pipe system of the end silencer (899 Euro). The double stainless steel pipes roar on both rear ends.
With a coilover suspension it is possible to bring the car body 40 millimetres closer to the road. The wheel houses are filled with the Design Multispoke wheel. The 19 inch large, glossy black rims with a silver edge hold high-performance tyres in the dimension 225/35 R 19 (complete wheel set for 2,930 Euro).
JE Design offers leather equipment Elegance for 1,599 Euro. The colour combination between leather- and seam can be freely chosen without any surcharge. If desired, the tuner embroiders and individual logo (79 Euro) on the front backrests. For highest travel comfort, there is also the two-level seat heating (379 Euro), the electrically adjustable lordosis-support for back-protecting travelling (319 Euro) and the massage system that works very silently with twelve programmes (429 Euro).Seat Leon Cupra R is here
