Continental ContiSportContact 2

The Continental ContiSportContact 2 is an Ultra High Performance Summer tire that was developed to meet the needs of the drivers of powerful sports cars, sports coupes & luxury sedans. The ContiSportContact 2 features Continental's bionic* contour & bionic* compound technology to enhance braking & handling as well as resistance to hydroplaning. While the ContiSportContact 2 is intended to eventually replace the original ContiSportContact, the original ContiSportContact is expected to remain available in selected sizes for some time.
On the outside, the ContiSportContact 2 features a bionic tread compound technology that is based on nature. The design of a spider's web -- which is both elastic & stable -- was used for the first time in the creation of a tire compound that is both flexible & firm. The bionic tread compound is molded into an asymmetric tread design that enhances steering response & steering precision while the tire's continuous ribs provide the circumferential stiffness to transmit drive & braking forces. The continuous circumferential tread grooves between the ribs help disperse water to resist hydroplaning. Internally, the ContiSportContact 2 tire features Continental's "Advanced Mold Contour" (AMC), which allows the tire to become wider during braking to help shorten stopping distances. The ContiSportContact 2 features twin steel belts reinforced by nylon to stabilize the tread area & enhance handling as well as high-speed capability.
Continental ContiSportContact 2 tires combine black sidewall styling with subtle black letters reversed out of a circumferential checkered flag graphic.
