For generations, the estate version of the Mercedes E-Class has been the elegant flagship transporter for commercial travellers and frequent drivers. However, if the extreme AMG versions are not used, the Stuttgart-based model lacks a certain dynamism in terms of driving behaviour.
This is why the development department of H&R Spezialfedern GmbH has launched sport springs for the current models. They are ideal for the upper middle class. In addition to the components presented here for the station wagons, there are other versions for saloon, coupé and convertible.
The springs, which precisely match the Mercedes shock absorbers, lower the vehicle’s centre of gravity by approx. 35 millimetres on the front axle and 25 millimetres at the rear. Thus ensuring reduced body movements and more direct steering. Added to this is the more pleasing appearance, the overtaking prestige also benefits significantly. Nevertheless, the long-distance driving comfort remains and the payload stays unchanged.
H&R Trak+ wheel spacers made of high-tensile aluminium promise even more profile. They are available in silver or black anodised. You can align both standard and aftermarket wheels to the fender edges with millimetre precision.
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.
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. All of which can help racing teams adapt to changing road conditions accurately and efficiently.
Every sport-oriented motorist can experience the result of these efforts! Suspension components “Made by H & R” enjoy appreciation from the international trade press and from customers all over the world.
Car manufacturers such as Porsche, AMG Mercedes, Volkswagen, MINI and BMW also rely on the know-how and flexibility of H & R for various special models. But not only sporty drivers, who had suspension components like Sport Springs for the Mercedes E-Class installed to optimize their vehicles, appreciate the qualities of the H & R products.
Simply put, H&R is more than just a suspension manufacturer — it is a company whose core philosophies are innovation, quality and performance.
