The new A-Class shows once again that the Mercedes designers are currently on a roll. Harmonious proportions, a wide range of power units and even biting AMG versions. However, they drive the smallest star in price regions which leads to acute cardiac arrhythmia.
The solution for this problem is not the trusted pharmacist, but the development department of H&R Spezialfedern GmbH, which has launched sport spring sets for the new A-Class at lightning speed.
The springs, which precisely match the Mercedes original shocks, lower the vehicle\’s centre of gravity by approx. 25 to 35 millimetres (depending on the vehicle model) and thus ensure reduced body movements and more direct steering. Additonally, the A-Class convinces with the more pleasing look in style of AMG optics. The firm front of the vehicle is attracting significantly more attention. Nevertheless, there is still long-distance driving comfort and it combines sporty characteristics with everyday value in a wonderful way. In addition, the H&R sports springs show that the A-Class really can do without coil over suspensions.
In addition to the suspension upgrade from Lennestadt, the Benz’s equipment contains a set of super-light Levella forged wheels (type RZ2) in 8.5×19 ET 45 format to ensure a full wheelbase.
As usual at H&R, all products are delivered with the required approvals and are 100% Made in Germany!
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 sports springs for the Mercedes A-Class 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.
