The Golf GTI has always been the driving dynamics benchmark in the compact class. Traditionally, the compact overall dimensions with short overhangs and the extra striking front – always in connection with neat performance and sporty chassis – identify the car. More is hardly possible. The suspension specialists at H&R, who are now also offering their height-adjustable H&R springs VW Golf GTi, nevertheless say \”Yes!”.
By the way, the height-adjustable springs are not only available for Golf. The \”MQB\” group platform is also found in the Audi A3, Seat Leon and the Skoda Octavia, thus also enabling the use of HVF spring systems here.
Important to know: The HVF system is used on models with the optional adaptive suspension as well as in the conventional standard version, whether with all-wheel or front-wheel drive. Either way, the standard shocks are retained. Thanks to the ingenious technology of the H&R HVF system, the vehicle\’s centre of gravity, which can be adjusted in height, moves down approx. 20 to 40 millimetres on the front and rear axles. This ensures even more direct steering and reduces body roll in fat corners without the abdication of the necessary driving comfort. Last but not least, the visual appearance also benefits from this.
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.
