Every Mini is sporty, but especially the Countryman – the maxi version of the latest Mini generation – has to prove its sportiness. With its lordly design and especially with four-wheel drive it will be sufficient for every adventurer for a trip into the countryside. But it is mainly driven on country roads and in the city, the Mini should have more sport spirit, H&R thought. The result has no need to hide – the suspension experts have already developed made-to-measure H&R sport springs Mini Countryman for the entire four-wheel model range with standard chassis.
They lower the Countryman by approximately 30 millimetres at the front and back. Especially the powerful-looking rear section immediately reveals that the Mini no longer stands as high as if it wants to take off – optically a real gain and with enough remaining spring travel. Technically, the Countryman gains as well, because the H&R sport springs bring the Mini’s centre of gravity down – and the road holding improves noticeably, especially in case of sporty steering movements: the body shows less tendency to roll and remains confident, even with athletic load alternations. Thus, in terms of sportiness, the maxi Mini keeps pace with its smaller brothers – even more when the individualisation is complemented by “Trak+” wheel spacers that are available now in differing widths.
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.
