Eibach Launch New Audi A1 Chassis Upgrades
Audi’s superb new compact, the A1, now has the poise to match its pose thanks to suspension gurus Eibach. The German manufacturer has released a spring and spacer package to endow the diminutive Deustchlander with class-leading levels of handling.
Whilst even the most hardened critics are struggling to find anything negative to say about Audi’s latest niche offering, the latest Eibach Pro-Kit package improves further on the already excellent chassis. By lowering the entire centre of gravity by approximately 30mm, the turn-in, grip and predictability of the car are hugely improved.
Sublime handling is all very well, but not if it’s at the expense of ride comfort. Here Eibach’s exclusive access to Audi’s factory chassis data prior to launch results in a factory-quality ride that perfectly matches the original dampers. This is achieved by Eibach’s progressive spring windings that effectively produce two spring characteristics in the one spring. Soft for straight line ambling, precise for spirited cornering. As the official supplier to Audi Sport – Ingolstadt’s Motorsport arm – for the last three seasons, the two firms enjoy a genuine two-way flow of information
This isn’t simply an exercise in dynamics however; The A1’s balanced good looks are further enhanced by the aggressive stance of the Pro-Kit, giving the car a far more purposeful appearance.
For those drivers wanting the ultimate aesthetic and dynamic enhancement, Eibach have also introduced a range of Pro-Spacers for the car. These precisely fitting spacers increase the vehicle track, further enhancing steering precision and improving the cars ability to cope with swift direction changes.
The icing on the cake comes in the form of the industry-leading 5 year, unlimited mileage warranty on the Pro-Kit, ensuring enjoyable driving for many miles to come.
