We have many brand ambassadors all over the world. In Austria, Switzerland, and Germany our testimonials are for example Olaf Manthey, Sabine Schmitz, and TV-Host Sidney Hoffmann.
In Japan we have a close relationship with Hashimoto Cooperation and are working together with the famous BMW tuner and racing team STUDIE AG. CEO and team manager Bob Suzuki is our exclusive Japanese KW brand ambassador. In the USA the drifters of the Formula Drift championship are our well known KW testimonials.
While KW has a variety of ambassadors, our second suspension brand “ST Suspensions” has only one testimonial available outside of the US.
The worldwide well-known and well-liked rally driver Ken Block is the face of ST suspensions.
Not long ago the 48 year old American race driver visited our KW Headquarters in Germany and took a behind the scenes tour of KW and ST.
It was the first visit for Ken Block to our German factory. Our CEO’s and founders; Klaus Wohlfarth and Jürgen Wohlfarth guided Ken throughout the company.
The American rally driver was amazed at how many parts of a ST coilover or KW coilover kit is directly produced in our German KW factory. At first sight the KW and ST kits only differs in the material for the strut houses.
KW is made entirely of stainless steel or aluminum, whereas ST uses galvanized steel for the coilover housing which is gold in color.
However there are more details that make the suspension technology of KW and ST suspensions so unique. KW offers a coilover for every purpose. KW dampers are able to be adjusted separately in rebound and compression damping, or electronically adjustable coilovers with adaptive dampers that can be adjusted via smart phone.
No other brand has such a diverse range as KW suspension!
Alongside these road applications, KW offers a variety of Clubsport coilovers with motor sport components specifically for track days as well as the famous KW Competition motor sport suspension systems.
Our three different ST suspensions coilover systems offer more adjustable options than other brands in this mid-price level. ST Coilover kits give you the possibility to lower your car for an attractive stance, adjust the damper setting and in the top of the range our ST XTA coilover kit allows rebound adjustment and camber adjustment with aluminum unibal top mounts.
Ken Block also signed the brand new Ford Mustang. At the moment we are developing our ST XTA coilover kit with adjustable top mounts and adjustable rebound forces for the latest reincarnation of the Mustang.
At the end of the day Ken Block did an autograph session with all KW Germany employees.
After his race at the Goodwood Festival of Speed the ST brand ambassador is no longer at a motorsport event in Europe. But Ken Block fans still have a chance to meet their idol, ST suspensions will send some lucky winners to Las Vegas for an exclusive Meet and Greet!
Thanks to ST suspensions, a brand of KW automotive, the winners will receive 2 airline tickets to Las Vegas, entry to 2015 SEMA show, 4 night stay at the Westin Hotel, $500 spending money, and a Meet and Greet private dinner with legendary professional rally driver and creator of the Gymkhana videos, Ken Block at the top of the line Morton’s Steak House.
