Styling Upgrades for the Facelifted SEAT Leon Cupra by JE Design

Published by on Sep 3rd, 2009, No Comments

The facelifted SEAT Leon Cupra has only been around for sometime and JE Design did not exactly like what it saw and hence came up with a tuning package to make it an untamable racing machine.


The kit picks up the horsepower of the car to 285 hp with 380Nm of torque and this has been achieved thanks to a revised ECU module which solely costs €1,499. Consequently, the Leon Cupra can now pelt from 0 to 100km/h in 5.9 seconds and can hit a top speed of 261km/h. With a better engine, you need better cooling and hence there is a stainless steel sports exhaust system which individually costs €899. The suspension of the Cupra has been lowered by using a coilover technology which brings down the ride height by 40mm and 19-inch gloss black multi-spoke wheels equipped with high performance tires (all costing €2,930) complete the package.

Seat Leon Supercopa – Limited Edition

Seat Leon Supercopa

SEAT is going to come up with a new Leon. I’m talking about the Supercopa that will be a limited edition (they’ve used us with them) with great specs. From what I know so far it’s going to top at 254 km/h thanks to a 2.0L Turbo FSI engine that outputs 285 hp and a torque of 360Nm. With such a plant under the hood the new SEAT Leon Supercopa is able to do 0 to 100 km/h in only 5.9 seconds and to my surprise the mixed fuel consumption is 8.3L for every 100 km you drive and the CO2 emissions are 199 g/km.

Such a new toy comes with improved brake discs and Eibach springs, a SEAT SPORT body kit and 18-inch alloy wheels painted in black to make it look gorgeous. The price is only €38,500.


Seat Leon FR550 TDI – Limited Edition

Seat Leon FR550

SEAT is going to build a limited edition Leon FR550 TDI version. I’ll have to admit that at first I thought FR550 means that it’s going to have an engine to output 550hp but then I realized that it’s not going to be much different from the FR we know and just one step lower than the Leon Cupra.  The 550 is the number of units that will be built.It will have the same 2.0L TDI engine that hits 60mph in 8.2 seconds with a fuel consumption of 39.2 mpg in the city and 47mpg on the highway. Other goodies to make the FR550 TDI special include racing-style buckets seats, USB connectivity, 18-inch “Draco” alloys and some badges.
