Je Design upgrades the Vw Scirocco

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 25, 2010

Once more, the JE DESIGN engineers have proven that they are still the quickest. Only introduced a few weeks ago, the VW tuning specialists from Leingarten near Heilbronn are already prepared to deliver a complete sport program for the latest Vw Scirocco.

The program, provided by free accessory dealers, can now be ordered. It cannot be avoided that when someone looks for a unique, athletic appearance, that he will most likely order an appropriate body package from JE DESIGN who has consistently delivered OEM quality components.

Of course, what is clearly implied here is that the material used is made of high-grade ABS and all components are individually fit as they are produced with CNC.

The 919 Euro kit consists of a front spoiler which already gives the car an active appearance even when at standstill and is conveyed with a center spoiler sword in carbon appearance. The silhouette is also improved by side skirts outfitted with air inlets and a rear spoiler extension which ideally fits the other parts and comes in carbon-look also.

Conversion kits costing 1,549 Euros for crash-tested gull-wing doors can be acquired if desired. The stainless steel tail muffler that comes with two oval end pipes (899€) and located at the center gives a powerful roar and a striking look.

It comes with an operating license from the EU. Offered also is a half system pipe with a 70 mm diameter and boosted by 11 hp. Height-reducing springs by JE DESIGN which have been particularly designed for the VW Scriocco, at 219 Euros, decreases the center of gravity by 30 mm and are merged with serial shock absorbers. Of course, altering the serial wheels is a complete necessity.

Here too, the sport program by JE DESIGN provides the stylish wheel design "multispoke" as wheel package. Furthermore, JE DESIGN provides wheels measuring 8x19 inches with 235/35 R19 rubber in "shadow silver" at 2,810 Euros, "matt black / silver rim bead" at 2,930 Euros or in "white pearl / polished front" also 2,930 Euros.

Likewise, under the hood, JE DESIGN improves the potency of the VW with the performance kit, tagged at 1,249 Euros, enhancing the power of the VW Scirocco 2.0 TFSI to 180 KW / 244 hp at 6,000 revs. Thus, torque likewise goes up from 280 to 350 Nm at 3,350 revs. The acceleration rate of a VW Scirocco tuned by JE DESIGN measures 6.6 seconds from 0 to 100 and is consequently 0.6 seconds quicker than its serial equivalent. The ceiling speed increases by 7km/h to 242 km/h. One year warranty and fitting costs are included in the price for the performance kit.
