The current generation of the Audi A3 has already attracted many fans, who could refine their zippy urban runabouts with sport springs and components from H&R. Now, also proud owners of the new Audi RS3 Sedan will be pleased: the suspension professionals offer sport springs, “Trak+” wheel spacers and sports anti-roll bars for the top version of the compact success model.
The H&R engineers bring the four-door car that comes with 400 hp approximately 25-30 millimetres closer to the tarmac thanks to H&R sport springs Audi RS3. With utmost precision and by maintaining enough remaining spring travel the sport springs were carefully tailored to the combination of the adaptive damping system (MRC) and the electronically controlled RS3 chassis (Audi Drive Select). Fully in the style of a super sportscar this modification allows the standard 19-inch sport wheels to be aligned with the contours of the wheel houses. This self-confident and dynamic appearance goes hand in hand with noticeably more driving dynamics: thanks to the tailored suit from H&R the car’s agility cannot only be tamed on straight roads. H&R’s formula for more driving pleasure: precise steering response plus reduced tendency to roll and lowered centre of gravity. The tried and tested interplay of these factors ensures the RS3 to be conducted through curves in a controlled manner, even when driving swiftly.
And if the RS3 is required to fulfil great demands in terms of lateral dynamics, the H&R professionals additionally recommend optimising the suspension with sports anti-roll bars that are already available for other cars in this model range. Depending on the requirements, they are double adjustable and achieve a precise wheel control and reduced body roll. Additionally, the H&R developers are currently preparing an infinitely variable coil over.
The secret to such success? To put it simply, the technology H&R employs to develop cutting-edge suspension systems for competition use is the very same used to develop innovative suspension components for street-driven cars. For the eighth year straight, H&R has been named the supplier for the DTM teams of Mercedes. In addition, H&R maintains extensive involvement in several touring car, GT and Monoposto racing series, not to mention the Formula 1- where each circuit may have its own demanding characteristics. In the harsh environs of competition, H&R is able to test new materials and innovate production technologies that can help racing teams adapt to changing road conditions accurately and efficiently.
Clearly, H&R holds an advantage when it comes to developing competition suspension components, and it is this same flexibility and attention to detail that allows H&R to design and manufacture components like springs, shock absorbers and height-adjustable coil-overs for high-performance street use. Indeed, one of the greatest accomplishments an automotive component manufacturer can attain is to become an Original Equipment (OE) supplier for the automotive industry—and H&R has reached the highest echelon in the industry by supplying precision suspension components to some of the world’s greatest automobile manufacturers. For example, Porsche equips its ultra high-performance Carrera GT as well as its 996 & 997 GT II and GT III with H&R components, while Volkswagen uses them on the Golf R32, the fastest Golf ever. And recently, Mercedes Benz chose H&R suspension components for its CLK supercar, the CLK DTM AMG. Directly derived from Mercedes’ DTM race car, this special model is limited to a production run of 100 units, and with 580-bhp, is one of the fastest production street cars in the world.
All of H&R’s products are 100% made in Germany, and meet ISO 9001 Quality Assurance Standards as well as the rigid safety standards of the German TUV. In addition to the finest-quality materials and state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, H&R prides itself in its ability to remain flexible in product development and production. Whether in motorsport competition or OE manufacturing, flexibility is key to fulfilling the many requirements of the industry today.
Simply put, H&R is more than just a suspension manufacturer — it is a company whose core philosophies are innovation, quality and performance.
