Fast Car - - CONTENTS - Words Midge

It’s safe to say that we see our fair share of new coilover kits here at FC, af­ter all, that’s just what we do, right? A car just isn’t mod­i­fied un­til you mess with the chas­sis. Ev­ery­one knows it’s the no.1 rule of car cul­ture.

How­ever, rather than de­vel­op­ing new ap­pli­ca­tions for ex­ist­ing prod­ucts, Bil­stein has launched a com­pletely new range of per­for­mance-fo­cused up­grades. That’s what’s known in the busi­ness as a big fookin’ deal, and it goes dou­ble when it just hap­pens to be one of the world’s most re­spected brands.

Well, Bil­stein cer­tainly haven’t done things by halves here, ei­ther. Their brand-spank­ing EVO Line comes in three vari­a­tions cov­er­ing street per­for­mance, un­com­pro­mis­ing track prow­ess and even those awk­ward mod­ern cars that have all sorts of adap­tive fac­tory fea­tures. In other words, we’re look­ing at ex­actly the sort of at­ten­tion to de­tail that makes Ger­man en­gi­neer­ing so renowned across the world.

The range starts with the EVO S model, which is built to meet all OEM stan­dards and de­signed for sporty (but com­pli­ant) fast-road han­dling that vastly in­creases cor­ner­ing speed abil­ity and of­fers more sta­ble trac­tion. The EVO SE units of­fer more of the same but come as a di­rect-fit plug-and­play solution for cars that have elec­tronic in-car ad­justable sus­pen­sion pa­ram­e­ters. And then there’s the daddy of them all – the hard­core EVO R vari­ant – which has been en­gi­neered specif­i­cally for the cir­cuit. These fea­ture sep­a­rate 10-click ad­just­ment of bump and re­bound set­tings and of­fer the high­est pos­si­ble cor­ner­ing speeds, along with bru­tal trac­tion and op­ti­mum grip.

So, what we’ve got here is clearly some­thing for ev­ery­one, but what’s even more im­pres­sive is that they’re keep­ing the prices in line with their ex­ist­ing prod­ucts, even though all kits de­vel­oped from now on will be part of the EVO Per­for­mance Line. Flash as you like, we think you’ll agree. www.bil­stein.com
