Silver VW T6 with a BILSTEIN B14 coilover system

”Record Suspension” also available for the VW T6

BILSTEIN equips VW T6 with specially developed BILSTEIN B14 coilover systems

As early as 2013 a 220 HP VW T5 cracked the lap record for utility vehicles on the Nürburgring Nordschleife – the time: 9:57 minutes. During this furious ride, BILSTEIN B14 coilover systems were also on board. But this was not simply a product from the usual catalogue, but a solution developed by the Special Customer Requests department at BILSTEIN. The impulse for this was provided by the wholesaler Deimann Fahrwerktechnik from Hauenstein in Rhineland-Palatinate, which then took over the sales of the product. The installation in Germany is therefore often carried out through the network of BILSTEIN suspension experts who possess particularly strong knowledge of the product and assembly. A particular highlight: The coilover system can also be used for the current successor T6 and also cuts a fine figure there.

“With this B14 variation, BILSTEIN has developed a complete package which dramatically increases driving pleasure in the T6, but is still targeted towards families”, says the summary by Deimann Fahrwerktechnik. The product offers an all-round, no-worries package which is available for almost all T6 variations: It doesn’t matter whether it is a sparse van or luxurious multi-van, with a long or short wheel base, with or without 4-wheel or heavy load suspension. The continuous variable lowering between 40 and
70 mm allows the customer an extremely high range.

The technical advantages of the built-in BILSTEIN B14 are diverse: The height adjustment has been put in a floating position and the spring travel has been increased by 30 mm in order to guarantee the superior BILSTEIN suspension action even for a significant lowering and with poor road conditions. At the back, BILSTEIN uses monotube technology to make the handling calmer overall.

The B14 suspension option from BILSTEIN is not only for tuning freaks who want to cruise from one meeting to another “like on a cudgel”. It produces comfortable handling and at the same time minimises the lateral tilt, and pitching and rolling movements. There is also significantly less “rocking movement” for the rear passengers, resulting in pleasant comfort to rest. The setup is therefore even recommended for passengers who quickly suffer from travel sickness. All round, the BILSTEIN B14 therefore produces a road performance which gives a significant boost to the driving dynamics for the T6 as for the T5 before, and irons out unevenness with its shock absorption.
