The core modification is the performance enhancement of the 2,0 TDI motor. Instead of the standard 103 kW (140 hp), it now develops 130 kW (176 hp). The torque increases by 85 Nm to 405 Nm. The changes at the motor management enable a better driving performance: 214 km/h top speed (serial model: 205 km/h) and the car propels from 0 to 100 in only 8.3 seconds (serial model 9.3). The performance enhancement comes with a part certificate by the German Technical Control Board (TÜV). The TDI continues to meet the emissions inspection regulations. The price includes a one-year warranty applicable to the engine, drive train and gearbox. If desired, this warranty can be prolonged at extra charge for another year. A performance enhancement for the 2,0 TFSI with 147 kW / 200 hp is also available.
JE Design headlights masks and a sportive front spoiler give the Seat Leon more of a racing prestige. Moreover, the rear boasts with a new skirt attachment which already comes with gaps for a stainless steel four-pipe silencer by JE Design. The end pipes measure 90mm and are made of chromed stainless steel. JE Design enhances the side face with a side sill set. The entire aerodynamic part are also available as complete kit. Also, JE Design offers the front grill for 109 euro which confers additional aggressiveness to the Leon.
The latest highlight by JE Design is the LED daytime running light which is fitted to the car front with an air inlet plate in carbon-look. This LED daytime running light fulfils two functions at the same time. When the dimmed headlights are on, the LEDs are dimmed to the parking lights mode (position light) which renders an extraordinary appearance at nighttime. When the dimmed lights are turned off, the LEDs shine brighter than in the parking light mode and increase road safety due to a better visibility during daytime.
As 'car paint', JE Design decided to apply an entire car film with CFC foil in 3D carbon-look. This foil bears a resemblance to carbon and gives the Leon a semi gloss shine. As this foil can be ordered in various colours, it sets the stage for the Leon with coloured contrasts, such as black/white. If desired, the car can only be partially equipped with car film.
The customer can choose from five wheel-sets. The highlight of the range measuring 17, 18 and 19 inches is the complete wheel-set 'Multispoke' in matt black measuring 8,0 x 19 ET 45 with 225/35 R 19 Y wheels.
JE Design also ensures that the Seat Leon is not swept off the road by its power. The suspension programme culminates in a coil-over which changes the ground clearance of this fiery Spaniard between 35-65 mm. Alternatively the refining specialist offers a more sportive road performance with sport springs. If desired, a 4-piston sport brake (330 x 28 mm) at the front axle guarantees a constantly effective deceleration from high velocities.JE Design invigorates Seat Leon Cupra
