The New SportContact 6 Tires In Middle East – Continental Tires boosts driving performance by up to 14%
Continental, the German premium tire manufacturer and international automotive supplier has announced the arrival of its highly anticipated SportContact 6 super sports tires across the Middle East. Targeting owners of cars in the high-performance segment, this dynamic new product delivers improved handling and steering precision.
Under extensive testing at Continental HQ in Hannover, Germany, the new tires have shown that they can offer a performance boost of up to 14% and can perform safely at speeds of 350km/h. To achieve this, Continental’s engineers have come up with an innovative structure that controls the huge forces on the tire, ensuring maximum driving safety.
This increase is also a result of the new chemical composition of the tire tread, along with the new tread design and tire structure. From now on, 41 dimensions will be available for rims with diameters of 19 to 23 inches giving drivers even more flexibility when it comes to matching their tires to their vehicle.
New SportContact 6 boasts a new compound, tread technology and structure
With this new summer tire, Continental is continuing its successful range of high-performance tires. The new super sports tire is particularly suited to pure sports cars such as the Audi R8 or Porsche 911 as well as very sporty vehicles such as the BMW 5 Series or Mercedes AMG.
Commenting on the arrival of the new product, Thomas Strohmeier, Head of Marketing Service & Operations, Middle East, Near East, North Africa said: “The SportContact 6 tires are set to be of high appeal in the Middle East. Not only will they allow discerning customers to achieve better performance from their vehicles but they also allow an 11% increase in handling on dry roads making them extremely relevant to the region.”
Thomas adds: “In our key markets as Saudi and the UAE there is more disposable income to spend on high end sports cars therefore I predict that these products will play a significant part in increasing our anticipated annual market growth for the SportContact 6.”
With the new product arrival, Continental is building on its already successful range of high-performance tires which includes the ContiSportContact 5 and 5P and the ContiPremiumContact 5, both of which offer outstanding performance on wet and dry roads.
