The 2014 Seat Leon Cupra has just received its first tuning programme from JE Design. As a result, the Swabian tuning company is taking the Leon Cupra to another level thanks to the new distinctive wide body kit in the style of the famous Leon Cup Racers.
Available for a total of 6,188 euros, the new body kit consists of a three-part bumper attachement, front and rear wheel arch flares, side sills in carbon look as well as a new rear apron that features two molded diffusers.
As an option, JE Design offers the graphite matte complete wrapping in contrast with the red spoiler lip, grille frame, mirror caps, air outlet struts and wheel rims. The wrapping and the red accents are available for 3,570 euros.
At the rear we find twin tailpipes with the dimensions 105 x 85 millimeters. If you want even more, for 283 euros you can get the auxiliary LED turn signal lamp ‘Arrow’, that hides in the air outlet of the rear wheel arc flares.
The new LED rain light from Formula 1, licensed by FIA, costs 250 euros. Under the hood, the 2.0-liter TSI engine was upgraded from 280 hp (206 kW) to 350 hp (258 kW) and a maximum torque of 440 Nm (standard model generates 380 Nm).
With the power increase, the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is made in 5.4 seconds (0.3 seconds quicker than the standard model), while top speed is 250 km/h or 155 mph. Engine upgrades cost 1,899 euros.
For 2,299 euros, JE Design offers the KW coilover suspension DCC Plug & Play that brings the car 45 mm closer to the ground. The exterior design is completed by the 19-inch Y-Spoke wheels wrapped in Dunlop Sport Maxx GT tires. The price for the complete wheel set amounts to 2,052 euros.
The new Seat Leon Cupra takes the emotional design of the Leon family to another level. For instance, the front end of the new Cupra is defined by large air intakes as well as full-LED headlamps while the rear end is marked by two oval tailpipes and a rear skirt with its diffuser effect. The new Leon Cupra is also provided with its own exclusive alloy wheels as well as with red brake calipers. The Cupra also features tinted side windows and rear windshields.
Inside, the new Cupra comes with a distinctly designed sports steering wheel -- with shifting paddles when the optional DSG transmission is availed. The cabin also features top sports seats in dark grey Alcantara with white stitching. Customers may have the cabin upholstered with black full-leather with white stitching. Customer may also avail of optional bucket seats. Meanwhile, the new Cupra also dons aluminum pedals and entry sills.
On the other hand, the Cupra 280 stands out through its distinct 19-inch wheels with a titanium paint finish as well as through the Aerodynamic Pack with the spoiler mounted on the rear edge of the roof. The car also sports Cupra lettering on the brake calipers as well as black exterior mirror housings. Its cockpit, meanwhile, features trim elements in deep glossy black, or in classic chrome as an option,
