JE Design Seat Ibiza Cupra 1.9 TDI

Cup-Racing was where the sport version of the SEAT Ibiza Cupra got its name. With 118 kW / 160 hp, this lightweight is not exactly a weakling in engine power terms. 330 Nm torque is not bad either. JE DESIGN proves, however, that there is still room for improvement. To this end, the Leingarten-based tuner is offering a version of the small Spaniard with a comprehensively modified look.

Once JE DESIGN has modified the engine management, the 1.9 litre turbo-diesel generates a powerful 136 kW / 185 hp, and 390 Nm torque tear at the front axle. A top speed of 225 km/h (production: 220 km/h) and 7.0 seconds (production: 7.6 sec.) for the sprint to one hundred kilometres per hour are really "not bad, for a diesel...". At the same time, the TDI still complies with current emission regulations. Needless to say, the power cure is supplied together with a TÜV (Technical Inspectorate) parts certificate. Also included (as is the case of all performance enhancements provided by JE DESIGN) is a 1-year warranty on the engine and transmission. The warranty can be extended by one year against payment of a surcharge if the customer so wishes.

The low-lie springs for the original shock absorbers that lower the Ibiza Cupra by approx. 15 mm are intended to give it an even more sporty road lie. Optionally, a KW stainless steel coilover suspension can also be ordered. Headlight screens and rear light masks made of ABS make the Spaniard quite a bit smarter. The sporty rear view is underpinned by chrome-plated twin tail pipes (2 x 90 mm).

As far as the wheel rims are concerned, the customer is spoiled for choice - either he orders the chrome-look "Multispoke SLC" size 7.5 x 18" ET 35 wheel set with 215/35 ZR 18 tires or the multi-spoke wheel set in the same size in shadow silver.
