JE DESIGN Brings Leon Cupra ST Widebody to Essen

  • Premiere at the Essen Motor Show
  • Widebody in its best form
  • Power increase up to 350 PS possible

It comes from JE DESIGN! The Leon Cupra WIDEBODY Race 350, put on wheels by the refiner JE DESIGN from the Swabian Leingarten, currently holds the official world record for street-legal front wheel drive vehicles at the Sachsenring. Right on time for the Essen Motor Show (November 28 until December 6, 2015), the team led by Jochen Eckelt presents the next blockbuster – a Leon Cupra ST in a customized widebody kit. Power boost, flap exhaust system and complete wheel set support the sporty optics.


A three-part bumper attachment, massive wheel arch flares front and rear, side skirts in carbon look and a rear apron with two molded diffusers make the compact station wagon into a power athlete. The widebody kit in the style of the Cup Racer is available for 4,879 Euro. At a price of 809 Euro, the refiner offers a rear diffuser that fits both the original exhaust and the JE DESIGN flap exhaust system. Sporty and ambitious drivers who want to hunt their Cupra ST down the race track grab the LED rain lights corresponding to the FIA regulations (249 Euro). This can be easily integrated into the rear diffuser.


Such a racy optic needs the right sound! The tuning specialists JE DESIGN know this. They offer a stainless steel flap exhaust system with EC approval for the Leon Cupra ST. This is controlled by the original driving profile selection made by Seat. The driving profiles Normal, Sport and Cupra can be selected. In the profiles Normal and Sport, the exhaust flap is closed and the exhaust sounds sporty but discreet. Cupra mode is different: With the flap open, the exhaust system reveals its full sound – music to the ears of Seat fans. Priced at 2,499 Euro, there is a sound upgrade made of four striking tailpipes with a diameter of 80 millimeters each. For 1,178 Euro extra, the downpipe jointly developed by JE DESIGN and HJS for the flap exhaust system with 76 mm diameter is available. This accessory also has an EC approval.

JE DESIGN emphasizes the sporty appearance with a performance upgrade for the Cupra ST. An additional electronic box allows the power of 206 kW/280 hp to be increased to 258 kW/350 hp with a maximum torque of 440 Nm. It doesn’t top off until a speed of 280. The performance enhancement includes a two-year warranty on engine, driveline and transmission (from the first registration) at a price of 2,299 Euro.


The spring set for 191 Euro, available for the original shock absorbers, provides 20 millimeters lowering. Alternatively, JE DESIGN offers the KW coilover suspension DDC Plug & Play. The application, available for 2,299 Euro, brings the fiery Spaniard as much as 45 millimeters closer to the tarmac.

Complete wheel sets with light alloy wheels from ATS or OZ up to a size of 10 x 19 inches and 265/30 R19 tires complete the offer. Prices start at 2,052 Euro.

All prices include VAT, excluding mounting and painting. Complete conversions are possible directly from JE DESIGN – acceptance by an official inspection organization included. For more information about the products offered, please visit
