Continental’s new sports tire is available in 42 versions – technocratic

From autumn this year, a total of 42 versions will be available in sizes between 19 and 23 inches, and the product range will be further expanded over the next year.

“With the new generation of SportContact, we offer a very safe, easy-to-use and high-performance product for those who like high-performance vehicles and sporty driving.”

Says Enno Straten, Head of EMEA, Continental Strategy, Analysis and Tire Supply.

“Our new product will be the first representative of the flagship and seventh-generation summer tires, which we will introduce in the coming years.”

According to Straten, Continental has focused on the highest level of perfection in all performance criteria during development to combine the maximum driving experience with the highest level of safety and sustainability in the UUHP (ultra high performance) tire segment.

The new SportContact 7 is the successor to a proven, popular, sporty summer tire. Since its introduction six years ago, it has been ranked first in tests by a number of magazines, including sports auto and AutoBild sportscars, and has received top recommendations. Leading European vehicle manufacturers pre-assemble the SportContact range of tires.

The Hanover tire manufacturer, together with the two other current summer tire models, covers nearly 95 percent of the market demand with the available models.

“This means that we can supply almost all European cars, SUVs and vans with tires.”

Straten reports.

“The new SportContact 7 is a product that represents the latest developments on the market.”

In the last 15 years, for example, not only have vehicles become about 10 percent heavier, but during this period, the cylinder capacity of engines has also increased by almost 30 percent. At the same time, CO2 emissions from vehicles have been reduced by 30 percent.

“Because all parts of the new tire have increased load-bearing capacity according to the XL standard, we can also install heavier cars seamlessly, and with the new SportContact 7 we are already supporting the trend towards sustainability.”

He explains.

“Finally, it offers not only significantly increased mileage, but also one of the lowest fuel consumption values ​​within the UUHP segment by rating the EU tire label in fuel efficiency class‘ C ’. This makes the SportContact 7 a safe and appropriate choice for all sporty vehicles, whether conventional or electric. ”

The SportContact 7 has been developed for cars with sporty features, all the way to supercars. The range of vehicles is wide: it is part of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio as well as the Audi RS series and the sporty BMW from M GmbH. There are also compact models like the Ford Focus III RS or the Mini Cooper S Clubman. Suitable sizes are also available for the Porsche 4 S GT, AMG, Lamborghini and McLaren vehicles. In addition, the SportContact 7 is also available for exceptionally high-performance cars such as the Brabus S 65 Rocket 900 Coupé.
