Cargraphic’s automatic level control syst­em assists with many day-to-day problems that may be encountered while driving a high-performance, lowered sports car. With the airlift suspension system, the front suspension is operated by the driver via a wireless remote-control unit. It enables the car’s front suspension to rise by 55 mm (2.17 in), allowing it to negotiate obstacles such as speed bumps and high curbs without damage to the front spoiler or underside of the car. If the driver forgets to cancel the system and lower the suspension after negotiating the offending obstacle, the airlift suspension will automatically lower the car back down to normal ride height once it has reached a speed of 50 km/h (31 mph). Airlift suspension can be used on road and track cars and racecars, and it will not have any adverse effect on the handling or performance of the car or the choice of wheel/tire combination.
