THE MANIFATTURA AUTOMOBILI TORINO FULFILS CAR DREAMS

Suspension know-how from our BILSTEIN Service Center N.T.P. in Italy

An unadorned industrial park in Rivalta di Torino, a community with at least 20,000 inhabitants somewhat outside of the Italian car metropolis of Turin. It’s hard to believe: car dreams come true behind the inconspicuous walls of Via Valgioie. Because it is here that perhaps one of the most exciting sports car companies is located: The Manifattura Automobili Torino, or abbreviated: MAT. The Manifattura Automobili Torino has specialised in the construction, development and production of individual parts and small production runs of racing and sports cars. In doing this, the Italians surrounding Paolo Garella, the founder and CEO of MAT, have filled a relatively extraordinary niche. Because barely one company is able to provide all of this from one provider.

THE MANIFATTURA AUTOMOBILI TORINO FULFILS CAR DREAMS

Suspension know-how from our BILSTEIN Service Center N.T.P. in Italy

An unadorned industrial park in Rivalta di Torino, a community with at least 20,000 inhabitants somewhat outside of the Italian car metropolis of Turin. It’s hard to believe: car dreams come true behind the inconspicuous walls of Via Valgioie. Because it is here that perhaps one of the most exciting sports car companies is located: The Manifattura Automobili Torino, or abbreviated: MAT. The Manifattura Automobili Torino has specialised in the construction, development and production of individual parts and small production runs of racing and sports cars. In doing this, the Italians surrounding Paolo Garella, the founder and CEO of MAT, have filled a relatively extraordinary niche. Because barely one company is able to provide all of this from one provider.

The Manufacture has worked together with Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus in several projects. For example, the Italians developed the SCG003S – a sports car with 800 HP and bodywork made of CFRP, for the US billionaire James Glickenhaus. Likewise, the SCG003C emerged as a very well respected race car for Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus as it achieved pole position at the 2017 24 hour race at the Nürburgring. Currently the Italians are finishing a small series of the “New Stratos”, the new interpretation of the 70s cult rally car. At the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, it respectably turned visitors’ heads.

The promise of the 2014 founded company: every project is uniquely and individually tailored to the customer’s dream – the own demand and the customer’s demand are accordingly high. Just like the expectations of the development partners at MAT. Since 2015, Manifattura Automobili Torino has placed their trust in our suspension expertise. “MAT knows that we are able to build high-performance shock absorbers tailor-made to customer’s requirements”, said Jochen Trettl, Managing Director of our BILSTEIN Service Center N.T.P. in Italy. “In vehicles which have more than 600 HP and for those with a value in the millions bracket, it is naturally important to provide attractive and innovative solutions, such as our add-on module iRC, with which we are able to control the various shock absorption profiles via a smartphone. And then it is naturally, above all, about supplying an excellent suspension set-up”, Jochen is convinced.

Race for a good cause

At the time, it was racing driver Luca Somaschini who represented the party on shock absorbers for us. Now his daughter Rachele uses our Modular Damper System in the Italian MINI Challenge and the hill climb championships.

Race for a good cause

At the time, it was racing driver Luca Somaschini who represented the party on shock absorbers for us. Now his daughter Rachele uses our Modular Damper System in the Italian MINI Challenge and the hill climb championships.

The young female racing driver, known for having cystic fibrosis, collects donations at every race which go toward the research of the to-date incurable metabolic disease. Rachele is currently competing in her MINI F56 in the Italian MINI Challenge. She is en route on our shock absorbers. As in the Alfa Romeo GTV Cup, we are also represented in the MINI Challenge Italia as a technical partner and sponsor. The MINIs have been equipped with our Modular Damper System from N.T.P on the front and rear axles. The multi-configurable adjustment range enables the teams maximum flexibility as the set-up can be adapted to the racing track without problems from changes. Rachele even holds her ground during the demanding hill climbing within the CIVM Championship. There she has a MINI R56 as support which is likewise on our MDS suspension kit. It was developed and adapted at the BILSTEIN Service Center N.T.P. Through the 2-way adjustability, the suspension can be maximally individualised and adjusted to the incidences on-site.

En route for the good cause

Rachele is always accompanied by her illness. This is currently incurable. For that reason you can read “#CorrerePerUnRespiro” on her front windscreen, which means so much as “Racing for a breath”. The young racing driver collects donations throughout the season and in doing so supports an initiative, which generates awareness for an illness and finances its research.

…setting adjustment from inside the car with the OE interfaces of the Nissan GT-R. The driver can chose “Normal”, “Comfort” or “Race” mode.
The engineer in the “Bilstein Technical Center” of NTP, use the original Bilstein piston rod and working piston, which is also in the original Nissan GT-R, but with a stiffer setting for road use but also Track-days.

The kit is completely plug-and-play and is not necessary to make modification.
In combination with the Bilstein dampers, we use Eibach ERS springs, with a stiffer rating, to have less movement and to have a direct response of the car on road and track.
In combination with the Eibach-Bilstein Coilover kit NTP has also in program the Eibach stabilizer bar with a diameter of 35mm on the front and 16mm on the rear

Upside-down struts: “Looks like oil – but it’s grease”.

we have all been there: Handling of production vehicles in bends is often unsatisfactory. This is due to the resulting lateral forces which the piston rod, piston rod guide and seal are highly subjected to with standard struts. Vehicles equipped with BILSTEIN upside-down struts …

…(BILSTEIN B6, B8, etc.) show improved driving characteristics in bends and on uneven roads. The reason: The supporting and lateral forces are spread over a wide area of the damper tube, thereby creating an almost distortion-free link between wheel and vehicle body.

BILSTEIN struts and cartridges with the “thick” damper tube handle higher lateral forces particularly well. Gas pressure struts and cartridges are produced with a piston rod in lower position (piston rod is bolted to the base piece of the pressure tube). This means that the shock absorber tube moves up and down in “BILSTEIN-specific” plain bearings between pressure tube and chromium-plated damper tube.

With the BILSTEIN upside-down technology, the chrome tube (shock absorber cartridge) rests inside plain bearings in the strut. A special lubricating grease is used to permanently optimize friction. During storage or even with already installed struts, this white (previously red) grease can bleed out at the top of the dirt scraper and become visible, so the chrome tube gets coated with an “oil film”. It looks like oil, but it’s the components of the grease.

However, this is technically irrelevant because neither the function nor the quality of the BILSTEIN shock absorber are affected by this. The high-performance mono-tube strut has proven its worth. Its special design brings a major plus in terms of security and comfort to the production vehicle.

NTP partner tecnico SEAT Leon Cup con ammortizzatori Bilstein MDS e Eibach

NTP è questo anno partner tecnico di Seat Motorsport Italia per il monomarca con le Seat Leon Cup Racer.

Tutte le Leon saranno equipaggiati con molle Eibach ERS e ammortizzatori Bilstein MDS a 2-vie.
Dopo 3 anni con un altro fornitore Seat ha deciso di cambiare tutte le vetture su ammortizzatori BILSTEIN, sia per le vetture dei diversi monomarca nazionali e anche l’EuroCup. Oltre a questo, anche tutte le vetture del campionato TCR Internazionale e Italiano saranno equipaggiate con ammortizzatori BILSTEIN e molle EIBACH.
N.T.P. sarà in pista a fare l’assistenza con il ns. Race-Truck dove all’interno abbiamo una officina completa per provare e modificare gli ammortizzatori. Durante alcuni eventi NTP effettuerà con i commissari di ACI Sport le verifiche dopo-gara per controllare che tutti gli ammortizzatori siano conformi.
La prossima gara sarà il week-end del 12/06/2016 a Misano.
Ci vediamo in pista…
