H&R at the ESSEN-MOTOR-SHOW - this tradition continues at the 2006 edition of the world's most important tuning expo. As one of the world's leading manufacturers of sporty suspension systems H&R presents numerous spectacular world debuts. And as official supplier to the DTM racing series H&R also exhibits the victorious race cars from Audi and Mercedes-Benz on its expo stand in hall 10.

H&R GOLD

The first order came from the owner of a Ferrari 430 Spider from Dubai. H&R GOLD: In a world debut H&R presents sport springs with genuine 24-carat hard gold coating at the ESSEN-MOTOR-SHOW 2006. Now the most luxurious suspension components of all time are also available for all other car makes and models.

This debut of the especially exclusive kind combines the typical H&R attributes of sporty handling, optimized active safety and highest quality with extravagant looks.

The GOLD option is available for all H&R sport springs for an additional charge of around 2,000 Euros for the set, depending on the size of the springs.

343.9 km/h: The World's Fastest Audi A4

On October 22, 2006 the Hohenester HS650 Nardo circled the high-speed test track at a speed of 343.9 km/h. On December 1, 2006 the world's fastest Audi A4, equipped with an H&R coil-over sport suspension, celebrates its public world debut on the H&R stand at the ESSEN-MOTOR-SHOW 2006.

Tuning specialist Alfons Hohenester installed a twin-turbo V6 engine with an increased displacement of 3 liters under the hood of a visually discretely modified Audi A4 sedan. The engine was tuned by the company-own engine shop and produces a maximum power output of 650 hp / 478 kW at 7,300 rpm and a peak torque of 720 Nm at 3,800 rpm.

That makes the Hohenester HS650 Nardo a force to be reckoned with not only when it comes to top speed: With sprint times of 3.4 seconds from rest to 100 km/h, 10.3 seconds to 200 km/h and 29.8 seconds to the magical 300-km/h barrier the 4x4 delivers performance figures that only a very select few super sports cars can match. And it does so while meeting stringent Euro 4 emission limits.

To make safe use of this performance potential Alfons Hohenester relies on a height-adjustable H&R coil-over suspension: "The uneven and banked track in Nardo places extreme demands on the suspension at speeds above 300 km/h. Together with our development partner H&R we found a great setup that made our HS650 Nardo absolutely safe and easy to drive. It was this combination of professionally tuned suspension, extremely powerful engine and modified aerodynamics that made our record possible."

MISSION 400 PLUS
