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 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.

07.01.2022fromJohn S. Not a sport tyre. Very disappointment.
26.11.2020fromAlan Burton Steady, now I'm over 70, with the occasional speed burst for fun. Usually stick to speed limits now.
26.04.2020fromKeith Stagner Quiet & grips well. Gouges very easily on curbs when parking
27.08.2019fromMIKE OE FITMENT NEVER HAD A PROBLEM AN EXCELLENT ALL ROUND PERFORMANCE TYRE.
