Continental Launches ExtremeContact Sport
From the track to the street, the ExtremeContact Sport was tested to the limits.
Continental Tire is introducing its newest ultra-high performance (UHP) tire, the ExtremeContact Sport, which was tested by five of the top drivers in International Motor Sports Association’s (IMSA) top series, the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
“It was great to see the dedication and passion all the drivers had for this project,” said Bob Liu, product manager performance tires for Continental Tire. “For the engineers to be able to ride with the drivers and experience what they were reporting was invaluable. The level of detail each driver gave was extraordinary and we think the combined expertise of the driver’s knowledge and our technologies will give car enthusiasts the precision and grip they expect in a UHP tire.”
“We took our knowledge from the track to the street in a whole new way with the ExtremeContact Sport,” said Travis Roffler, director of marketing for Continental Tire. “These drivers pushed our tires to the limits to help develop a tire that includes superb dry handling while not sacrificing any of Continental’s award-winning performance in the wet. This summer tire is ideal for sports cars and sport and luxury vehicles.”
