The ContiSportContact™ 5 P - safe performance for sporty cars, giving maximum fun at the wheel.
The latest innovation from the Continental experts. A high performance tire that offers maximum safety and driving pleasure for highly tuned cars. The ContiSportContact™ 5 P is individually adjusted to meet the specific requirements of the front and rear axle positions. With precise steering and maximum grip under all conditions the vehicle’s perform to their full potential on the road. The ContiSportContact™ 5 P doesn’t only go fast – it stops fast too. It is therefore recommended by leading experts.
Designed for sports and high-performance vehicles. The super-sports tyre with superior handling for maximum fun. Engineered in Germany, Continental offers premium tyres with optimum braking performance and safety. Perfect steering precision and sporty handling just as short braking distance thanks to black chilli technology. Test winner by Auto Bild sportscars in their summer tyre test 2014 (sizes tested: 255/40 R 19 and 285/35 R 19)'.
Perfect steering precision and sporty handling
Outstanding grip and stability during cornering
Short braking distances on both wet and dry roads
Optimised to meet the specific requirements of front and rear axle positions
Perfect steering precision and sporty handling.The solid, sturdy central ribs, attached tread lugs, plus asymmetrical tread ribs ensure optimum, longitudinal stiffness in the tyre and reduced movement in the tread. This means steering forces are transmitted straight to the road.
Outstanding grip and stability during cornering. A supple macro-block design on the outer shoulder and solid central ribs, ensure that the tyre adapts perfectly to the road surface. Particularly during fast cornering the contact patch is increased. The driver receives excellent feedback when approaching the limit and the tyre provides outstanding grip with maximum stability.
Rolling resistance-optimised ‘cap and base’ tread. The two tread components – ‘cap’ and ‘base’ – complement the balanced compound concept and ensure good grip in the wet, whilst at the same time providing short braking distances and reduced rolling resistance. The ‘cap’, on the outside, provides good grip in the wet and short braking distances, whilst the ‘base’, on the inside, reduces rolling resistance. Together they achieve more positive road grip and retain kinetic energy, whilst simultaneously ensuring high safety.
Short braking distances on both wet and dry roads. Black Chili Technology is a specially developed compound technology involving an innovative type of racing grade carbon black, which ensures a speedy warm-up process and greater stability. The polymers in the compound are reinforced with nano particles, making them extremely supple. Thus they provide more contact points with the road, so grip is substantially enhanced and the tyre far more stable. In addition, special grip resins provide optimum interlocking with both wet and dry roads, thus achieving shorter braking distances.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
