An Audi A4 Quattro, fitted with Dunlop SP Sport Maxx TT tyres, has set a new world speed record for a car powered by climate neutral fuel. The Audi driven by Jürgen Hohenester attained speeds of 204.7 mph when tested at the Papenburg circuit in Germany.
The car was fueled by biogas extracted from field grass, with an octane level between 120 and 140 ROZ. “High speed tuning and ecological aspects don’t have to exclude each other,” Hohenester explained. “This Audi A4 is a prototype, which proves how powerful these new fuel technologies can be already today.”
The Dunlop SP Sport Maxx TT tyres are perfectly adapted for precision driving at such high speeds. The tyre compound incorporates Kevlar EE, which adds strength to the sidewall of the tyre, increasing stability, road feedback and delivering precise handling.
