JE Design Seat Ibiza
Following Seat's recent facelift to the Ibiza, JE DESIGN is now offering new bodywork attachment parts. This tuning specialist from Leingarten also adorns this compact Spanish car with two hefty power boosts and new wheel rims.
The first power boost concerns the 1.9 l Diesel, which, in the production car, generates 118 kW/160 bhp and a torque of 330 Nm. Following JE DESIGN's modification to the engine management system, the engine produces a solid 136 KW / 185 bhp and 390 Nm torque on the front axle. A top speed of 225 km/h (production car: 220 km/h) and 7.0 seconds (production car: 7.6 sec) to sprint to 100 km/h are something to shout about. The tuning specialist breathes extra power into the 132 kW/180 bhp generating 1.8 l Turbo petrol engine also by means of a modification to the engine management system. The 144 kW/ 196 bhp then permit an increase in the top speed by three km/h up to 232 km/h, while a generous increase in torque from 235 to 300 Nm allows the Ibiza to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in true GTI style in 6.9 as opposed to 7.7 seconds.
At the front end, a striking JE DESIGN front spoiler reduces the lift on the front axle. Headlight lens caps and TÜV-exempt tail lamp housing made of ABS for €89 lend this Spaniard a much smarter appearance. The headlight lenses in particular work wonders, constricting the somewhat crudely designed original lights to a more respectable size. A visual lowering and a sportier side profile are created by fitting a set of side sills. The rear view is adorned with a chrome plated twin tailpipe (2 x 90 mm), which is perfectly matched to the diffuser insert in a carbon-fibre look. The latter can be fitted in addition to the JE DESIGN rear apron attachment and lends the Ibiza a more powerful appearance from behind. To round things off, extra racing flair can be created by fitting the JE DESIGN roof edge spoiler as well as the three-piece boot lid rear spoiler supplied with a type approval certificate, and which can be set at any angle.
The Ibiza's cornering speed is vastly improved by fitting suspension lowering springs, which lower the car by around 30 mm for.
Turning to the wheel rims in an 18-inch design, JE DESIGN gives customers the choice between the chrome-look wheel set "Multispoke SLC" in the dimension 7.5 x 18" ET 35 fitted with size 215/35 ZR 18 tires or the Multispoke wheel set in the same dimension in Shadow Silver.
