Continental Tyres is “delighted” to have been named as “Partner in Excellence” of Mercedes-Benz World, the pioneering brand experience centre located at the historic Brooklands motor racing circuit in Weybridge.
It will supply its high performance tyres for all Mercedes-Benz vehicles used in the driving experiences, both on the circuits and challenging 4×4 off-road terrain.
As the lead tyre development partner for Mercedes-AMG division, Continental is said to be well placed to serve the many and varied demands of the entire Mercedes-Benz driving experience range.
Peter Robb, Brand Manager of Continental Tyre Group, said: “Continental is delighted to be partnering with Mercedes-Benz World, offering our expertise to not only one of the most prestigious brands in the world, but also one of the most technologically advanced brand experience centres in the UK.
“By combining the excellence of both Continental and Mercedes-Benz World, we can offer the ultimate combination of products which incorporate high performance and a shared passion for ultimate safety.”
Andrew Mallery, commercial operations director of Mercedes-Benz cars, added: “Since opening Mercedes-Benz World six years ago, we have delivered a quarter of a million thrilling driving experiences. As we look to the future to deliver even more we are delighted to have Continental as our official tyre partner.
“Our aim is to deliver the best driving experiences. With Continental’s strong engineering heritage and recognised expertise in tyre safety we will do just that.”
Visitors to the brand centre are invited to explore every model in the range, discover iconic classics and with attractions throughout its three storeys capture the fascination of Mercedes-Benz – the company that invented the car in 1886 and continues to be at the forefront of automotive performance.
Experiences include the power-driven thrill of lapping a V8-engined Mercedes-AMG on the Handling Circuits and power-sliding on the Wet Skid Circle’s low friction surface, whilst 10 acres of challenging terrain offers a breath-taking off-road adventure in the latest 4×4 cars.
