H&R announced today it will offer a sport suspension for the new Audi R8 V10 Spyder. You might think that a car like the R8 needs no improvement, but H&R says the new suspension can improve the sporty characteristics of the ten cylinder vehicle – without perceptibly reducing the driving comfort.
Next to the new sports suspension, H&R is also offering an aluminum coil over kit that can adjust the height and damping force. They have also added wheel spacers made of high tensile aluminum.
The R8 V10 is powered by the same 5.2 liter V10 as the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 and develops 525hp. This allows the V10 to make the 0-60 mph sprint in under 4.1 seconds will reach 125 mph from a standstill in a little over 12.7 seconds with a top speed around 194.49 mph.
Press release after the jump.
Just shortly after the official launch H&R can already offer a sports suspension set for the 525 PS Audi R8 V10 Spyder. Audi has provided its super open-topped car with a whole portfolio of technical support, from the legendary quattro four-wheel drive to the newly developed sports suspension with electronic steering. H&R Spezialfedern has developed a sports suspension set exactly for this, which can improve the sporty characteristics of the ten cylinder vehicle – without perceptibly reducing the driving comfort. In addition a 20mm lowering suits this fast open Audi very well. The imposing mid-engine sportscar thus appears more compact and powerful. For even more agile handling the suspension specialists from Lennestadt are offering an aluminum coil over kit with which the height and damping force can be individually adjusted within of the values approved by the Technical Inspection Authority (TÜV).
Further highlights can be gained from the H&R TRAK+ Wheel Spacers made of high tensile aluminum – regardless of whether they are combined with OE or aftermarket wheels. The unsightly gap between the wheel arch and the edge of the wing can thus be consigned to the past. The full range of H&R products can be had at all good specialist dealers and along with the expected H&R quality naturally always comes with a general operating permit (ABE) or TÜV certificate of conformity for parts (Teilegutachten).
