Well Kw have done it and done it well

basically they have designed hydraulic coilovers they are like normal coilovers but are designed for sports cars and they lift up 45mm for extra ground clearance.

So you still get sports car handling but with the added bonus of being able to get over speed bumps Thumbs Up

saw these in the back of Performance VW...

45mm isn't much but it would mean a lot when your sump or body is scrapping along the speed bump!
