For 149 Euros more, you could also get lowering springs that work together with the standard shock absorbers of the car, reducing the ride height of the Ibiza ST by 35 mm. You can choose from one of the 17- or 18-inch wheels that are available in various designs.

For more oomph under the bonnet, the Ibiza ST 1.6 TDI CR can get a power box that offers 16 and 32 Nm of torque more, which means that the hp figure can be raised to 121 hp (89 kW), while the peak torque is 282 Nm. With this upgrade, the car can do the 0-60 mph sprint in 10.2 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 194 km/h.

Inside the cabin, the guys over at JE Design have added leathery upholstery and a steering wheel that has been wrapped also in leather, along with other styling accents that give the interior a more refreshed look.

JE DESIGN Volkswagen Touareg

The engineers over at JE DESIGN revealed last week their upgrade program for the VW Touareg. Under the bonnet it has the same 3.0-liter TFSI engine, but it has been tuned in order to output 440 hp and 630 Nm of torque. With this extra oomph available, the SUV can sprint to 62 mph in 5.9 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 255 km/h. This upgrade will set you back 3999 Euros, and for an extra 199 Euros you will get a two-year warranty for the power unit, compressor, transmission and powertrain.

The Seat Leon is a pretty powerful hatchback model, sharing many of its engines with the Volkswagen Golf. The Seat Leon Cupra takes things one step higher, and offers quite a lot of performance. The Leon Cupra R takes it to the max, and unleashes 261 HP from that 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.

But the max isn’t always the end, at least according to the tuners at JE Design, who have unleashed a brand new cosmetic and performance tuning package for the Spanish hatch. After quite a lot of fiddling with the electronics, a recalibrated ECU and many more, the peak power is now at 330 HP and 420 Nm of torque, dwarfing the factory output of the car.

Handling has been improved, with JE Design adding not only a new, more rigid suspension system, but also a revamped brake system and a quad-pipe exhaust with a much beefier sound.

The looks have also been improved, with a complete body kit consisting of extended front bumper, new mesh grille, badge removal, as well as side skirts, an extended rear bumper and a new wing in the back. All of this is complemented by a new gray color, but we’re not so certain about the red accents.

The new Volkswagen Polo looks great. It’s much more aggressive style is what makes it stand apart from its fellow B segment hatchbacks and also helped it earn the 2010 European Car of the Year award.

But JE Design thought its looks can use some improvement, and has released a new body kit package for the small German model. The kit itself is made out of a front spoiler, a set of more aggressive side skirts and a restyled rear bumper with a faux carbon fiber diffuser, all for $2,000 (€1528). If you want a set of wheels to go alongside it, JE Design offers either a 17-inch or an 18-inch set, both finished in shadow silver and costing $2,475 (€1809) and $2,600 (€1929) respectively.

Other accessories for the Polo V include a center-mounted exhaust system from stainless steel, LED daytime running lights, lower springs and a new KW coilover suspension. For the inside, the tuning company offers options like leather upholstery, heated or massaging seats.

Performance upgrades aren’t available just yet, but according to JE Design, they are in development and an announcement will arrive soon enough, hopefully before the Polo GTI gets here.

After North American tuners had their “little” get together at the SEMA show in Las Vegas last week, it’s time for the European companies to prepare for their own convention, at the Essen Motor Show in Germany, which will start on November 28 and end on December 6.

This means that already quite a lot of companies are revealing to the press the creations which they will debut in Essen. The latest to do so is JE Design, which has revealed some very special packaged for the Seat Leon FR models, both the diesel and the gasoline variants.

Although the team preferred not to mess with the inner workings of the engine, by adjusting the ECUs, JE Design managed to squeeze 270 HP from the TFSI unit and 204 from the TDI one (as opposed to the standard 211 and 170 HP, respectively. Torque has also been increased to 355 Nm for the petrol and 380 for the diesel one. The engine modifications result in a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.2 seconds for the TFSI and 7.6 for the TDI.

Other impressive modifications include a double-lipped front spoiler, side skirts and center diffuser, as well as new headlights and a set of very popular LED daytime running lights. In the back, you’ll observe a quad-pipe exhaust system, which joins the new springs, which lowered the car by 35 mm, the adjustable coilover suspension and the set of polished, multispoke 19-inch wheels.

As you can see from the pics, the major enhancement, at least in the eyes of JE is the Lamborghini-style vertical doors. They let you enter a leather interior, with the material coating everything from the heated, massage seats, doors, armrest or steering wheel.

In case this tuning package sparks your interest, you’ll need to fork out €12,652 for the gasoline TFSI version and €12,552 for the TDI one.

There’s not a lot of news going around about Seat’s new car, the Exeo, who received some pretty negative feedback at its debut, last year in Paris. But here’s a tuning program, one of the first, I think, coming from the German tuner JE Design. There were no important mechanical changes (except a 35 mm ride height lowering kit) or engine upgrades mention, so we assume it’s only a styling package, with new sport radiator grille without the SEAT logo, new front spoiler, new side skirts, diffuser panel with carbon look, new exhaust with sport end muffler and four stainless steel pipes and JE Design light allow Multispoke wheels available in 18- and 19-inch dimensions (shadow silver or graphite silver matt finish). All equipments are available for separate purchase, with prices ranging from 199 Euros ($260) for the radiator grille up to 899 Euros ($1,190) for the exhaust.

If we want to be a little mean to Seat, we’d probably say the reason there aren’t many tuning programs for the car would be that any package available for the previous generation Audi A4 would probably fit perfectly the new Exeo too. But we’re not going to be mean and we’re gonna say the JE Design package is a decent addition to the Exeo sedan.

The Seat Ibiza Cupra made its debut at there days’ Paris Motor Show, but now we have another sporty Ibiza treatment, this time from the German tuner JE Design. The tuner has fitted the Ibiza SportCoupe with a body kit that includes a new front spoiler, sport radiator grill, headlight eyebrows, side skirts, roof spoiler and a carbon fiber rear bumper apron attachment.

Though Seat introduced, some time ago, new colors for the model, JE Design added more features that make the car really stand out, like the LSD wing doors, center-mounted trapezoidal tailpipe and special matte black acrylic sheets that take the Ibiza SC’s look closer to the Bocanegra concept. The car also got 35 mm lowered springs and 17 or 18 inch JE Design wheels. Performance upgrades were made to the 1.9 TDI engine, which now delivers 130 hp (40hp more than the production version) and which takes the car from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 10.0 seconds (1.1 seconds faster than production version) and up to a top speed of 198 km/h (128 mph), comparing to 186 km/h (115 mph) on the regular model.

German tuner JE Design, responsible for another cool WideBody tuning, of the Audi Q7, created a tuning program for the facelifted Volkswagen Touareg. The powerful, wide body kit features a new front spoiler, new air vents in the front bumper, a set of side sills with air inlet, rear apron attachment and massive wheel arch extensions.

The car is powered by VW’s 5.0 V10 TDI engine, but the power output was increased to 352 hp. Handling was improved by a 35 mm lowered suspension and the car rides on 22 inch ten-spoke wheels finished in matt black. The side sills hold 5 blue LED lights for which create a cool lightning at night. The interior was also modified, featuring a complete carbon make-over and customers can choose from highest quality leather and Alcantara suede for the upholstery and a lot of monitors and electronic gadgets.

The German tuner JE Design announced the release of the AUdi Q7 Widebody. First released last year, with a 3.0 engine, the new edition has a new modified 4.2 liter V8 engine that packs 350 bhp and takes the Audi to a top speed of 243km/h (151mph), and from 0 to 100km/h (60 mph) in 5.6 seconds, which very impressive for a “tiny” 2 tone car.

Don’t you just love it when tuners decide to modify already powered-up cars? We certainly do. It’s the case of JE Design, which decided to modify the Seat Leon Cupra, so they upgraded the 2.0 TFSI engine which now produces 285 hp (210kW), that’s 45 hp more than the standard version. The car now goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.9 seconds and has a top speed of 261 km/h.

But that’s not all, JE Design prepared a unique body kit for the Seat, with spoiler inserts in the front apron, a matching diffuser insert in the rear bar, a modified front grille and headlight covers to give a more aggressive look, plus side sills, air channels in both the front and rear bumpers and finally, a rear wing for added downforce.

The Leon also comes with 18in or optional 19in multipsoke alloys finished in a chrome paint or matt black. But that’s not all, it seems that JE Design engineers prepare a more powerful version, with 300 hp, plus some other exterior modifications. (more…)
