Continental tyres have scooped the coveted Fast Car Award for the best wet weather performance.
The judges were impressed with the tyres manufacturers emphasis on safety and the magazine wrote: “Tyres are the most important product you can buy for your car – they keep your ride on the road.
“The Fast Car Awards reward companies that keep investing to develop ever better products, driving both quality and value for the consumer.
“With an emphasis firmly on safety, Conti make original fitment tyres for top-end rides like AMG Mercs, Audi’s R8 and even Ferrari. Wet weather performance is the best we’ve tested and their rubber looks top-notch too.”
The Fast Car awards are an industry standard for quality, exceptional performance, originality, desirability and value.
Tracey Hyem, brand manager at Continental, said: “Continental is no stranger to awards and we are really pleased to add to this collection with the sought after Fast Car honour.
“Wet weather safety is always our main focus when designing a tyre so to be recognised specifically for this is great.”
