The new edition of the Range Rover Evoque consistently follows the design language of its extremely successful predecessor. In addition to style and quality, the Brit also shines with the best value retention in its class. Despite the all-wheel drive, however, there is still plenty of room for improvement in terms of driving dynamics. The suspension experts at H&R have now impressively changed this with tailor-made sport springs.
The springs, which precisely match the standard shock absorbers, lower the vehicle’s centre of gravity by around 35 millimetres on both axles and ensure noticeably reduced body movements and more direct steering. The entrance is also more comfortable. Added to this is the sporty appearance, which makes the Evoque look even more bulky. Nevertheless, the long-distance driving comfort and payload remain.
H&R Trak+ wheel spacers made of high-tensile aluminium, which will be available shortly, promise even more profile. They are available in silver or black anodized. Both standard and aftermarket wheels can be aligned to the fender edges with millimeter 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 Range Rover Evoque 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.
