Artega GT sports car with BILSTEIN shock absorbers

Bends galore

The sports shock absorbers fitted by car maker Artega Automobil GmbH & Co. KG to its first standard production model are made by ThyssenKrupp BILSTEIN Tuning GmbH. Originally, the Artega GT was a showcase vehicle from the supplier paragon AG, designed to document the company's elevation to a systems partner for the automotive industry. The resulting standard model perfectly demonstrates the expertise and innovative capacity of this company, based in Germany's Westphalia region. BILSTEIN provided the O.E. expertise in terms of suspension technology - to ensure that the power of this high-performance sports car is expressed in superior grip and excellent road holding, the chassis on the Artega GT includes four BILSTEIN shock absorbers that transmit the driver's sporty style on to all road surfaces and through every bend.

BILSTEIN sports shock absorbers are the ideal complement to the character of the powerful Artega GT. Its rear-mounted 3.6 litre V6 direct injection engine produces around 300 hp and does 0-100 km/h (0-60 mph) in 4.8 seconds. With a top speed of 273 km/h (170 mph), the Artega is a swift mover, competing with other fast and finely fashioned cars. Comfortable, yet boasting all the requisite sporty attributes, the BILSTEIN sports shock absorbers easily handle everything a sporty driver would expect from a car like this.

The development partnership between Artega Automobil and BILSTEIN enabled the engineers from both sides to determine and achieve the required driving dynamics, stability and damping force for this powerful sports car. BILSTEIN supplies the suspension components direct to the car manufacturer in Delbrück, Westphalia, for completion of the chassis.
