Polo GTI with H&R setup

7 December 2010 One Comment

As you all have probably seen the new Volkswagen Polo was release here in South Africa a good few months back, but something which I am still waiting upon is the very sporty Polo GTI. This is one of the latest cars to be played with by the famous suspension experts, H&R. Using their specially developed setup on this Volkswagen sports hatchback, H&R were able to improve the handling and driving characteristics. From the factory, the VW Polo GTI comes with 134kw and a 7-gear double clutch transmission; however the focus on this particular project was the suspension.

These guys were able to lower the car by 20 mm in the front, and 30 mm at the rear, while the option to drop the car 45 mm is still possible. A few more modifications were added to improve the GTI’s stance, these included an adjustable Monotube coilover suspension, H&R stabilizers, and TRAK+ wheels spacers made from high tensile aluminium alloy for superior strength.
This is what they have turned out.. pretty hot if you ask me!
