The all-new Toyota Supra is a magnet for aftermarket companies and Germany’s KW Automotive makes no exception.
The suspension manufacturer has released details about the first fully adjustable coilover suspension kit for the latest Supra A90, the KW Variant 3. The aftermarket suspension is said to improve the Japanese sports car’s lateral dynamics without sacrificing ride quality in normal driving conditions on public roads.
Despite lowering the ride height by up to 40 mm (1.57 inches), the suspension absorbs road irregularities “harmoniously” and prevents bumpy driving behavior as the bodywork’s pitch and roll movements are noticeably reduced.
The multi-valve dampers offer separate adjustment of compression (16 clicks) and rebound (12 clicks) settings therefore offering a multitude of setups according to the driver’s preferences. KW says this motorsport-derived technology allows for a “driving behavior as tight as necessary and as comfortable as possible.”
As a matter of fact, the Toyota Supra that raced at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring earlier this year also used a KW suspension with separately adjustable compression and rebound dampers.
“Despite the low center of gravity of the GR Supra, our KW Variant 3 Coilover allows a stepless lowering of 15-35 millimeters (0.59-1.38 inches) on the front axle and 20-40 millimeters (0.78-1.57 inches) on the drive axle,” says KW product manager Johannes Wacker.
Looking at the photos, it’s pretty obvious that the KW adjustable coilover suspension kit also improves the 2020 Supra’s looks. Thanks to the lower ride height, the sports car appears more planted and menacing. The prices for theKW Variant 3 Coilover kit haven’t been released yet.
