TAS09: KW Suspension Booth and KW Hydraulic Lift Suspension for GT-R

January 24, 2009

KW Suspension’s been working with Hashimoto for some time now, tuning their Japanese spec GT-R’s suspension on Germany’s Nurburgring circuit. The KW Variant 3 suspension was born of this development work and was launched in 2008 for GT-R owners worldwide.

At Tokyo AutoSalon 2009, KW showed off their new product for the GT-R the Hydraulic Lift Suspension system on their black GT-R demo car decked out in Seibon carbon fibre parts and LSD door system. Twenty inch F1X-Carbon wheels are supplied by Khan Wheels and are a magnesium alloy construction wheel with a carbon fibre inlay. Weight per wheel is around the 13 kg mark. The new 20″ Toyo R888 competition tires assist with the aggressive stance of the car.

The KW HLS system is designed to give the user in-cabin height adjustment facility to enable the owner to raise or lower their car on the fly. Available in 2 (HLS2) and 4 (HLS4) wheel kits, this is the same setup KW has previously sold for Porsche, Ferrari and Lamborghini’s to enable them to have a more practical supercar. Demo video is after the jump.

The HLS2 kit comes in at 1,020,600 yen while the HLS4 kit is a touch more at 1,209,600 yen. This includes the KW Variant3 height, rebound and damper adjustable suspension integrated into the hydraulic lift system.

To help promote the availability and test of the KW Suspension GT-R parts, they’ve built the Nissan GT-R Webspecial Site which is up now at the link below.
