Striking face, large storage space and neat power. With the \”Octavia RS\”, the medium-sized series of the Czech Volkswagen offshoot mutates from a conservative family stationwagon to a sporty all-purpose weapon – also in the diesel version with 184 hp shown here. Reason enough for the H&R engineers to take measurements and design individual sport springs. These harmonise perfectly with the standard suspension and make the \”RS\” appear much more dynamic. The lowering of the body by approx. 50 millimetres eliminates the somewhat high legged character of the standard model and pays off in terms of driving dynamics through more \”bite\” during rapid load changes as well as visually.
The sports springs are now available with a type approval – as well as \”Trak+\” wheel spacers, with which standard or aftermarket wheels can be precisely aligned to the body edges.
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.
