Unlimited driving fun thanks to excellent grip.
With the launch of the ContiSportContact™ 5, Continental has developed a tyre which is equally suitable for sporty cars + SUVs with sporty driving characteristics. With this new development, the tyre engineers have made significant progress in camparison to the popular predecessor ContiSportContact™ 3: Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions.
Excellent road grip and safety when cornering.
Reduced fuel consumption and high mileage. This was made possible due to a new compound which focuses on maximum power transmission and provides low rolling resistance whilst driving normally. This rubber compound which carries the name 'BlackChilli' uses the various vibrations of the tyre.
For high-performance and luxury vehicles. The performance tyre, with outstanding handling and control.
Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. With our Black Chilli Technology you have excellent road grip and handling just as safety when cornering. Highly recommended by Auto Bild in their summer tyre test 2014 (sizes tested: 225/50 R 17 W/Y).
Excellent road grip and handling just as safety when cornering. The macro-block design of the tyre’s outside shoulder provides a larger contact area, which can therefore adapt optimally to the road surface. The ContiSportContact™ 5 offers improved road grip and thus more safety when cornering.
Shorter braking distances in all weather conditions. When braking, the tyre has a high natural frequency within the compound. Short-chain polymers in the Black Chilli compound of the ContiSportContact™ 5 react to this braking frequency and thus provide optimal energy absorption. The resulting heat shortens the braking distance on wet and dry roads.
Reduced fuel consumption and high mileage. At a constant speed, the vibrations in the compound are significantly lower. The long-chain polymers within the compound can release the absorbed energy better, resulting in considerably reduced rolling resistance. Thus, the tyre runs more easily and remains cool – for a higher mileage and a reduced fuel consumption.
Boundless driving pleasure thanks to safer grip.
The new ContiSportContact 5 - Control has never been more athletic. With the ContiSportContact 5, Continental has developed a tire which is equally suitable for sporty cars and for SUVs with sporty driving characteristics. With the new development, the tire engineers have been able to make significant progress in comparison to the popular predecessor Conti Sport Contact 3:
This was made possible especially by a novel mixture that is designed for maximum power transfer during braking and normal driving, allowing a low rolling resistance. The 'Black Chilli' said rubber compound utilizes the different vibrations of the tire.
