The New SportContact 6 – High-Performance Handling, Grip and Safety

At the IAA, among other things, Continental will be displaying its new generation of tires, hybrid drive systems for all vehicle classes, improved brake systems, ever-more advanced driver assistance systems, lightweight products, and components that make operating a car easy.

World premiere at IAA: Continental's new SportContact 6 is a super sports tire for the high performance segment that clearly improves on the handling, steering precision, and high speed suitability of the previous model. To bring these improvements to the roads – with a performance boost of up to 14% in some cases – the technicians in Hanover have "reinvented" the chemical composition of the tread, the tread design, and the tire structure. From now on, 41 dimensions will be available for rims with diameters of 19 to 23 inches.

Available material includes edited packages in English and German and still images of the SportContact 6.
