After JE DESIGN, a well-known SEAT customising specialist, tuned the
new Leon two months prior to its market launch, the same tuning
specialist from Leingarten, Germany, has now turned its attention to
the "FR" version.
The core of the modifications is the power boost to the 2.0 TDI
engine. Instead of 125 kW (170 bhp), it now generates a solid 142 kW
(193 bhp) with a torque increase from 85 to 410 Nm. The
modifications to the engine management system permit better driving
performance: A top speed of 224 km/h (series: 218 km/h) and
acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds (series: 8.2) send
out a clear message! The power boost comes with a TV parts
certificate. Needless to say, the TDI still complies with the EI
regulations. An electronic power boost for the new 2.0 TFSI with 147
KW / 200 bhp leads to a terrific 180 kW (244 bhp) with a torque
boost up to 355 Nm at 1,850 rpm. Here, too, the modifications to the
engine management system permit enhanced driving performance: A top
speed of 235 km/h (series: 229 km/h) and acceleration from 0 to 100
in 6.5 seconds (series: 7.3)! This power boost also comes with a TV
parts certificate. In each case, the price includes a 1-year
guarantee on the engine, drive train and gearbox. Upon request and
subject to an extra charge, this can be extended by a further 12
months. A power boost for the new Leon CUPRA 2.0 TFSI with 176 KW /
240 bhp is in the pipeline.
JE DESIGN starts on a sporty note at the front by fitting a new
front grille without a brand logo that features a grille insert.
Headlight eyebrows lend this Spaniard a more aggressive look.
A sporty front spoiler featuring an additional air vent in the
corners make the Seat Leon look even classier when overtaking. JE
DESIGN enhances the side view by fitting a set of side sills. The
tuning specialist completes the rear view of this Spaniard by
fitting a rear apron. Last but not least, a rear spoiler goes to
create greater downforce on the rear axle, particularly at high
speeds. These aerodynamic body-styling components are also available
as a complete kit. In addition, it is also possible to order the
self-adhesive JE-DESIGN roof fin "Shark attack" in a matt black
Upon request, it is also possible to order a 4-pipe stainless steel
rear silencer with chrome-plated tailpipes. This not only promises
to generate an awesome sound, but also optimises the engine
performance by reducing the back pressure.
The growing desire for chrome also leaves its mark on the Leon range
from JE DESIGN. Besides a four-piece set of door handle surrounds,
the price also includes the B-post trim "3 D Chrome" with a chrome
inlay and a rear door surround in addition to the trim panel for the
lower section of the boot lid.
Customers can choose from five sets of wheels. The climax of the
offering in 17, 18 and 19 inch versions is the "Multispoke" complete
set of wheels in chrome look in the dimension 8.0 x 19 ET 45 with
size 225/35 R 19 Y tyres.
JE DESIGN also ensures that the Seat Leon remains sure-footed
despite its extra power. The suspension range comprises a set of
sports suspension struts, which brings the Leon FR around 30mm
closer to the ground, and which noticeably improves the handling and
ride comfort due to the lower centre of gravity.
Alternatively, the tuning specialist offers sportier handling in the
form of a coil-over suspension kit, which changes the road clearance
of this fiery Spaniard in the range from 35 to 65 mm. Upon request,
constantly-acting deceleration from high speeds is guaranteed by a
4-piston sports braking system (330 x 28 mm) on the front axle.
