JE Design modifies yet another VW Scirocco, but this time it’s diesel only! They’ve picked Scirooco 2.0 TDI and TDI CR and gave both of them extra juice and appeal. The only problem we see here is this horrible green color they’ve used for these press pictures!
As for design and style, JE Design offers a sporty kit which has aerodynamic benefits as well. You see that aggressive front spoiler, side skirts and rear diffuser with central twin exhausts and you know this is a serious car. But when you see those LSD doors you might think it’s a bit too serious because Lambo doors on a VW is not cool, at all.
The 2.0 liter diesel engine of the Scirooco also received some attention and is available in two power stages. First you have the 180 hp (133 kW) and 400 Nm of torque package which is 40hp over the stock model, and for the CR version it’s 205 hp (171 kW) and 410 Nm of torque which about 35 more. The latter can do 0 to 100 in 7.1 seconds and tops 229 km/h.
JE Design VW Scirooco is closer to the earth by 30mm and comes with 19 inch multi spoke sport wheels. Check out JE’s Press Release below for more details and pricing…
The times of shaky oil burners are over. But the diesel engine still has a rather stale image. Now JE DESIGN is taking on this prejudice.
The refiner located in Leingarten, Germany enhances the performance of the already agile turbo diesel in the VW Scirocco with an additional control unit by more than twenty-five percent from 140 hp (103 kW) to 180 hp (133 kW). Also the maximum torque increases from 320 to 400 Newton meters at 1,750 to 2,500 rpm respectively. The maximum speed thereby rises from 207 km/h to 213 km/h, and the acceleration from zero to hundred is reduced by 0.9 seconds to 8.4 seconds.
Also for the new 2.0 TDI CR, JE DESIGN offers a performance enhancement of 170 hp (125 kW) to 205 hp (171 kW). With that, the Scirocco then renders a top speed of 229 km/h (serial model: 222 km/h) and accelerates from zero to hundred in 7.1 seconds (serial model: 7.8 seconds). The torque rises to 410 Newton meters (serial model: 350 Nm)
JE DESIGN offers the entire performance pack with assembly for 1,249 Euros (180 hp) and 1,449 Euros (205 hp) including VAT and adds a 12-month warranty.
In order to adjust the appearance to the newly gained power, JE DESIGN has created an entire body kit. The refiner produces these parts in the usual OEM-quality made of high-quality ABS (Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene). The CNC-milled material ensures a low weight, perfect fitting accuracy and at the same time, the highest material stability.
The kit for 919 Euros including VAT includes a front spoiler with a center sword in carbon look which already renders a racy glance when the car is still parked. The side skirts with air inlets and a rear skirt attachment which is perfectly adjusted to the other component parts and which is also available in carbon-look renders a powerful profile. A refining kit for gull-wing doors (1,549 Euros) completes the body modification.
The muffler made of stainless steel with two central oval end pipes (899 Euros) renders an earthy sound and an impressive appearance. The muffler comes with an EU-operating license. The lowering springs (299 Euros) which were especially designed for the VW Scirocco, lower the car by 30 millimeters and are combined with serial shock absorbers. In order to fill the wheelhouses adequately, JE DESIGN offers the elegant wheel design Multispoke as a complete wheel set. The wheels are available in the size 8×19 inches in shadow silver (2,810 Euros), or graphite matt / with polished edges (2,930 Euros), both with 235/35 R 19 tires.
The sport program for the VW Scirocco can be immediately obtained directly from JE DESIGN, from car component dealers or from Volkswagen partners.
