Release) No danger of confusion: The new Seat Leon 1 P „CUPRA“
from JE DESIGN
Following modifications for the newly launched Leon FR, JE DESIGN
German Leingarten tuners, well-known refiners for SEAT, now resolve
to take on the Spanish in the completion of the „CUPRA".
While the "old" Seat Leon Cupra R (Typ 1M) has differed through its
sporty and independent front and rear aprons from the Leon-vesions
with less power, the new „CUPRA" threatens the driver into danger of
The SEAT specialist JE DESIGN recognised this and offers help in
form of an individualized grand entrance. Specially developed for
the CUPRA from the Leingarten, Germany, based tuners, is a
downforcer insert for the centre of the series-produced front apron
and which at the same time minimizes buoyancy. The same function is
fulfilled with a diffuser insert that is applied to the
series-produced rear apron. More sportiness is procured through a
new front grille minus Logo including grid insert. Headlight covers
gives the Spanish car a serious glance.
Sporty front spoiler corners complete with additional air channels
provide the JE DESIGNed Leon CUPRA with more passing-lane prestige.
The sides are optimised with a side sills set through JE DESIGN. The
tuners create another attractive addition through the rear apron
set. Last but not least a rear wing provides more downforce on the
rear axle especially during higher speeds. Furthermore, a
self-adhering JE DESIGN roof fin "Shark attack" is available in
For an extra charge, JE DESIGN laminates individual parts for
example the radiator grill or mirror cover in Carbon-Look.
The core of modification is the performance increase of the 2.0
T-FSI Motor . Instead of just 177 kW (240 HP), it now renders an
attention getting value of 210 kW (285 HP). The torque increases
from 85 to 385 Nm. The change in motor management creates a better
driving performance: 261 km/h top speed (series-produced: 247 km/h)
and 5.9 seconds from 0 to 100 (series-produced: 6,4) placing
pressure on many other sports cars. For that reason, JE DESIGN Leon
„CUPRA" with its 250 km/h easily shakes off the electronic regular
BMW M5 and Audi RS4. The power enhancement comes with TÜV parts
endorsement. Included in the price is a 1-year guarantee on motor,
transmission and gearbox. On request for additional price is the
possibility to add a further year of guarantee.
Whoever wants acustical improvement for their Leon CUPRA, can order
a 4-pipe end exhaust made of stainless steel with chromed end pipes
additionally. This promises not only a sonor sound, but also
optimises the motor performance through optimized exhaust flow.

provided pictures (on CD) - rolls on wheel rims in sporty matt black
with lacquered nearly complete white ring having a small gap tha
includes the JE DESIGN logo.
JE DESIGN concerns itself that the Seat Leon power doesn't toss
itself from the street. For this reason, a sporty spring set brings
the Leon CUPRA approx. 30mm closer to the street, lowering the
center of gravity for clearly improved handling and driving ability.
Alternatively, the tuners offer a sportier driving performance
through a coilover suspension that alters the fiery Spaniard
providing a freedom from street between 35 and 65 mm.
A further technical as well as optically pleasing configuration
level of the CUPRA with over 300 HP in a wide body version is
currently in preparation for a world exclusive presentation at the
SEAT Event from 24 - 26 August 2007 at the Technik Museum in Speyer,
Germany. Further event information can be found at
