One of the most crucial requirements of tires fitted on high performance, sports cars is agile steering precision.
This ensures your vehicle maintains good adherence to the road in face of the considerable forces acting on the tires when driving at high speeds, making abrupt manoeuvres or changes in road surfaces. The asymmetric tread ribs on the ContiSportContact™ 3 are designed to absorb these forces. On dry roads, the new tread pattern ribs provide outstanding braking capability and steering precision, by absorbing the forces exerted on braking. This means a reduction in stopping distances. On wet surfaces, the unique grooves allow increased clearance of water for better resistance to aquaplaning.
New: The asymmetrical pattern ribs. The pattern ribs provide shorter braking distances. Longitudinal forces come into effect when braking. These forces are retained by the continuous pattern ribs due to their high longitudinal stiffness. The result is an improved braking performance. The asymmetry secures improved steering precision.During swift and abrupt steering manoeuvres high lateral forces act on the pattern ribs from the outside. The angled sides stabilise the ribs and reduce their deformation under such forces thus resulting in an increased steering precision.
Developed for high-performance vehicles. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Excellent safety when driving at speed. Trusted by leading car manufacturers, including the models eg. Audi A4/A8, BMW Series 3/5/7, Mercedes-Benz AMG E-class Coupé, Porsche 911/Boxster and VW Passat CC.
Excellent safety when driving at speed. The asymmetric tread ribs are designed to absorb the considerable forces acting on the tyres when driving at high speeds, making abrupt manoeuvres or when the road surface changes. This ensures the vehicle maintains good adherence to the road and allows for agile steering precision.
Shorter stopping distances on dry and wet roads. The tread pattern ribs provide outstanding braking capability and steering precision by absorbing the forces exerted on braking, which means a reduction in stopping distance.
Excellent protection against aquaplaning. The unique grooves allow increased clearance of water for better resistance to aquaplaning.
Traction, grip and braking distance are all optimum on both wet and dry roads.
Remarkable resistance to aquaplaning by dispersing water efficiently from the tread.
The new Sport3 tyres drive off the water excellently and thus ensures perfect handling when on wet roads. Even in curves and on dry roads, these tyres ensure optimal performance of your car on the road.
