Impressive grip from Continental’s latest, sportiest rubber

Impressive grip from Continental’s latest, sportiest rubber
Deon Schoeman

Six months after the new SportContact 6 ultra-high performance tyre made its international debut, Continental has finally launched the new flagship tyre in South Africa.

Continental considers the SportContact 6 its ultimate high-performance tyre, and as such, the tyre is specifically aimed at performance-oriented customers who demand the very best for their exotic or sports cars.

Advanced technologies developed for the new SportContact 6 include a proprietary compound called Black Chilli, which offers exceptional grip and stability in wet and dry conditions. Force vectoring via a special tread pattern design, and the use of advanced materials, are further hallmarks.

But its when you drive around a track like Zwartkops with a car shod with SportContact 6 that the benefits of the SportContact become instantly noticeable. Lateral stability is impressive, turn-in is accurate and positive, and the tyre handles with a real sense of precision and control.

Even under duress, the tendency to understeer is effectively and succinctly addressed, creating a neutral, composed attitude that allows full attention to be focussed on the vehicle’s dynamic traits.

The new SportContact 6 is offered in a choice of 22 sizes, with more sizes on the way.
