The most challenging race tracks, the best drivers, the fastest cars: Whether in DTM, Formula 1 or on the street with supercars like the Mercedes CLK DTM AMG or Porsche Carrera GT, H&R suspension components offer precise handling, and performance with more than 1000 vehicle designs and applications.
The secret to this success? 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 cars, GT and Monoposto racing series, not to mention the Formula 1 where each circuit may have its own demanding characteristics. In the harsh environment 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. 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.
H&R employs about 100 highly-motivated and uniquely qualified individuals who design, develop, produce and sell suspension components for H&R customers around the world.
Simply put, H&R is more than just a suspension manufacturer — it is a company whose core philosophies are innovation, quality and performance.
