Je Design Seat Leon FR tuning

JE DESIGN gives the most powerful Seat Leon with a gasoline engine, the FR 1.8 TSI, even more power. With increased performance, a sporty aerodynamic kit and sporting accents, the refined Spaniard breaks away from the rest of the series. An improved suspension and light alloy wheels demonstrate the sharper approach by JE DESIGN.

After the engineers from Leingarten in Baden-Wuerttemberg have finished their work, the 1.8 TSI engine produces more power. Instead of 180 hp (132 kW), the engine puts out 215 hp (158 kW). In addition, the refiner has boosted the maximum torque from 250 to 300 Newton meters. Thus, the Seat reaches a speed of 100 after just 6.9 seconds (series: 7.5 seconds). The acceleration tops out at 235 km/h. The production model has a maximum speed of 226 km/h.
 
The 1.8 TSI in the FR owes its newly-won power to an optimized control unit. JE DESIGN offers the entire performance boost for 1,990 Euro including VAT and twelve month warranty.

The Leon shows the increase in performance with a new aerodynamic package in carbon look (complete for 1,369 Euro). The front spoiler (417 Euro) hugs the street. Side skirts (357 Euro) calm down the air flow and pass it on to the rear skirt insert (298 Euro). In the five-door hatchback, a roof spoiler (357 Euro) also ensures the necessary downforce on the rear axle.

Optional (not shown), there are also two stainless steel tailpipes on both sides, each with a diameter of 80 millimeters. The complete stainless steel muffler (899 Euro) has an EC approval. JE DESIGN offers all aerodynamics components (except the roof spoiler) exclusively in carbon look. This eliminates time-consuming painting, and the parts can be assembled on the vehicle immediately. Of course, these have a TÜV certificate.

Lowering springs (237 Euro) improve the road adhesion of the FR and bring the car 30 millimeters closer to the tarmac. Whoever would like to reduce the distance to the road individually can pick up the KW coilover suspension made of stainless steel (1,049 Euro). With it, 35 to 65 mm are possible.

Alternatively, the proven MULTISPOKE rims can be mounted in shadow silver in 7.5x18 (complete wheel set from 839 Euro), or if desired in 8x19 with 225/35 R 19 tires (complete wheel set from 999 Euro).
