Audi has chosen the ContiSportContact 5P tyre to fit their sportiest models, the R8 and the long-awaited RS3. This choice was dictated by the tyre’s high-level of performance, easily ascertained from the product details. In its original configuration, the R8 V10 is shod with 235/35 ZR19 tyres on the front axle and with 295/30 ZR19 tyres on the rear axle. The brand new 340 HP, hatchback sedan, RS3 will be fitted with 225/35 19 tyres.

In addition, Continental tells us that the A1 will be shod with ContiSportContact 3 and ContiPremiumContact 2 in varying sizes   depending on the options and the engine type – between 15 and 18 inches.
