Big cat with more bite: H&R sport springs for Jaguar F-Pace
Just as its brothers and sisters, Jaguar’s first SUV is dynamic: the top diesel engine in the F-Pace produces dazzling 300 hp and jumps to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds. This already says much about the sportiness – but not enough was done as the H&R experts found out. This has changed now. And there is much more possible with tailor-made H&R sport springs.
They lower the Jaguar by 30 millimetres at the front and back. Thus, the F-Pace does not drive up with the SUV-typical “long legs” that the standard model seems to have due to the free space between wheels and wheel houses. Optically, the lowering of the centre of gravity gives the big cat more “teeth”. And has a noticeable impact on the driving dynamics. The optimised steering response enthuses fans of sporty driving manoeuvres just as the minimised body roll when driving fast through curves.
Who is in for some lowering, should also be in for some widening: thanks to H&R Trak+ wheel spacers, which will be available shortly for differing widths, original and retrofit wheels can be perfectly aligned with the wheel house edges to achieve a classy racy look.
