Superb braking performance for real high performance cars

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.

Technical details

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.

Highlights:

  • Excellent safety when driving at speed
  • Shorter stopping distances on dry and wet roads
  • Excellent protection against aquaplaning
  • Asymmetric tread ribs

 EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.

Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.

The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.

With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.

Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.

Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
