As the first independent model from the Cupra brand, the Spanish crossover coupe is already quite sporty. But of course the Leingarten-based tuning company, as a recognized specialist for sporty vehicles from Spain, would like to go one step further. So JE DESIGN filled the display “wide” and asked the well-known question: “Would you like a little more?” For the market launch of the Formentor, JE DESIGN offered the first modifications to the chassis and wheels. At the same time, Jochen Eckelt also announced the development of a widebody kit for the racy Spaniard. These aerodynamic components are now available and not only provide more width, but also significantly more downforce on the rear axle. Mighty wheel arch extensions on the front and rear axles with indicated air outlets ensure a beefier look and offer more space in the wheel arches.
JE DESIGN WIDEBODY kit
So rims up to a size of 10 x 21 inches can be mounted. The new JE DESIGN performance wheel in 10 x 20 in the color version silk matt black offers the optimal combination of optics, performance and comfort. The rim is manufactured using the weight-optimizing flowforming technology and therefore weighs only 13,6 kg.
The rim is covered with 265/30 R 20 or 275/30 R 20 tires. Specially developed lowering springs in 2 versions ensure the perfect fit in the wheel arch. Option 1 provides approx. 30 mm more depth (vehicle with white wheel arch extensions) and with option 2 it is approx. 50 mm closer to the asphalt (vehicle with gray wheel arch extensions). The aforementioned air outlets provide a more distinctive look and a contrasting finish for even more sophistication.

Front spoiler with side fins
The 2-part front spoiler with side fins has been specially developed for the widebody and can only be installed in combination with this kit. In addition to the strong appearance, the fins have a positive effect on the air flow. A large roof spoiler with a central air duct ensures more downforce on the rear axle. The rear view is completed by a 3-part rear spoiler lip on the boot lid below or on the side panels. The front spoiler and the two rear spoilers are available either in fiber composite material or, for the first time at JE DESIGN, in elegant carbon fiber. The racing material has an impressive deep shine and brings real weight advantages - the large roof spoiler, for example, weighs only 940 grams.
Flap exhaust system with black tailpipes
JE DESIGN installs its flap exhaust system with 4 black, oval tailpipes in 106 x 71 mm. This means that the system fits perfectly with the original rear apron. The flaps are controlled via the standard driving profile selection. Both in Cupra and in sport mode, the flap ensures a robust sound. In comfort mode, relaxed travel is the order of the day. The more in sound and optics, of course, also requires more performance. JE DESIGN installs an additional control unit here, which was specially developed for the 310 hp version of the Cupra Formentor. Thus, the power increases to an impressive 373 PS (274 KW) and the torque is now 487 NM (400 NM series). Of course, this also has a corresponding effect on the driving performance.
Sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 4,4 seconds
While the top speed is still limited to 250 km / h, acceleration and pulling power improve considerably. The JE DESIGN Cupra Formentor now manages the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h in 4,4 seconds (series 4,9 seconds). A 3-year engine guarantee up to 100.000 km is included. Wheels, chassis and optics are available for all engine variants, flap exhaust and performance enhancement are currently reserved for the 310 hp version. For a trouble-free entry, corresponding parts certificates or EC approval (flap exhaust) are included for all parts.
Don't worry, of course that was far from being the case when it came to auto / auto tuning. Our magazine still has tens of thousands other tuning reports in stock. Do you want to see them all?
