In a close cooperation with TECHART Automobildesign, Continental developed a performance tire, which is specially designed for sport driven use: the ContiForceContact.

 

After more than two years of development, numerous rubber compounds, various construction designs as well as countless test drive kilometers with the TECHART GTStreet based on the Porsche 911 Turbo, the demands of TECHART and Continental on the common tire development project were fulfilled: a road-legal tire which can be driven with extraordinary steering precision, featuring well-defined limits and which allows the vehicle to perform to its full potential.

 

In mid-June, the participants of the sport auto perfection training had the chance to test the impressing quality of the tire on the Nordschleife. Provided with the ContiForceContact and led by a Porsche 911 Turbo, refined by TECHART and provided with the TECHART performance kit TA 097/T2 and 620 hp, the tires were comprehensively tested.

 

In combination with the ContiForceContact, TECHART exclusively offers a performance-oriented 19-inch wheel set, which satisfies the highest demands towards individuality, precision and driving dynamics. Initially the classic five-spoke TECHART Formula light alloy wheel is available. With its elegant flowing shape it incorporates spaces between the spokes, which enable not only a clear view of the braking system but also effective heat dispersal. The TECHART Formula III forged light alloy wheel – available from August - with five dynamically shaped twin-spokes, its low weight and the significantly reduced unsprung masses directly result in an enhanced driving performance.

 

For Porsche vehicles, the ContiForceContact is exclusively available at TECHART in the sizes 235/35Z19, 265/30Z19, 305/30Z19 and 325/30Z19.
