Continental ContiSportContact5 P, a new muscle tyre
With this new tyre, Continental is aiming at enhancing its credibility on the sports tyre market by offering a very special product aimed at exceptionally high-performance cars.
To reach its goal, manufacturer Continental is offering a veritable technical arsenal:
- Hybrid assymetric tread composed of nylon and Kevlar.
- Rigid and stable centre ribs between the tread grooves to reduce distortion of the tread surface and offer optimum steering precision.
- « Macro-block » tread developed to improve the all-roundability of the tyre and its adaptability to the road surface.
- « Black Chili » technology, a technical process developed for auto sport which warms up the rubber quickly, whilst offering high stability. The polymers reinforced with nano-particles provide much higher flexibility, and improved grip.
- Optimisation of the rubber mixtures and the belting in order to cut down on tyre heat and thus reduce the rolling resistance.
- Tread pattern edges are offset and inclined in order to reduce braking distances.
This package looks promising, and we can’t wait to try it under real conditions to see if this tyre lives up to its promises!
This tyre is available with a ZR speed rating and in 18 to 23 inches with type approvals for Audi Quattro and Mercedes.
