The ContiSportContact becomes the SportContact. For the 6th generation of this sports tyre, this change reflects a new positioning, even more radical than that of its predecessor.
Indeed, the SportContact 6 will be positioned in a new product segment called U-UHP (Ultra Ultra High Performance). It is important to understand that it is derived from the ContiSportContact 5P, designed for powerful sports cars and the ContiForceContact, a road-legal semi-slick tyre.
This tyre has been designed to deliver outstanding overall performance, with a specific emphasis on maximum grip.
In any case, the "SC6" has already created the buzz, even before it hits the market. And for good reason, its introduction on the market coincides with the launch of the new Honda Civic Type R, for which it has received approval as original equipment. A sports car that delivers an impressive amount of horsepower to the ground via its unique front wheels requires tyres of impeccable quality.
This car/tyre combination has already demonstrated its efficiency by setting a lap time of 7 minutes 50.63 seconds on the Nürburgring track making this car the fastest in its category.
All technical information on the SportContact 6 as well as the available sizes will be provided as soon as possible.
