The German tyre manufacturer Continental Tyres will be extending its contracts with top-class cars by supplying summer tyres for DaimlerChrysler. The company has been offered a contract to equip a share of all models in the new Mercedes-Benz C-class with the ContiPremiumContact 2 and ContiSportContact 3 in sizes 16, 17 and 18 inches.
The ContiPremiumContact 2 tyre is renowned for its short braking distances and comfortable handling. The tyre also boasts low rolling resistance, reducing fuel consumption while maintaining tyre performance. Its sister tyre, the ContiSportContact 3, has improved grip for acceleration and braking making it the ideal accompaniment for the luxury compact Mercedes C-Class.
Continental will manufacture the new tyres for the third generation W204 C-Class at its facilities in Germany, France, the Czech Republic and Portugal. The new C-Class was introduced in January this year and was released for sale in March. A high-performance AMG version with a 6.2 Litre engine is set to follow.
