Continental Tyres are Approved for the BRABUS 820
BRABUS has also added SportContact 7 high-performance tyres from Continental. It is approved exclusively for speeds of up to 340 km/h to the mix. With 820 horsepower and 950 Nm, the Porsche 911 Turbo S-based BRABUS 820 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds, and the top speed of the luxury high-performance supercar is an electronically limited 340 km/h. Figures at this elevated end of the spectrum require a tyre that can withstand the centrifugal forces at play and make the most of the car’s performance. That’s why the SportContact 7 tyre from Continental has been specially approved up to this maximum speed for the BRABUS 820.
The high-performance tyre with BlackChili compound delivers driving pleasure of the very highest order and consummate handling on both wet and dry surfaces. The summer tyre comes in 255/30 ZR 21 format for the front axle and 335/25 ZR 22 for the rear. Forged Monoblock Z “Platinum Edition” wheels from BRABUS are available in various sizes, reinforce the sports car’s wedge shape. Before the new BRABUS 820 could be registered for road use, the quality and performance of the supercar were put to the test under the watchful eye of BRABUS CTO Jörn Gander and with Porsche Supercup driver Lance David Arnold at the wheel.
At the Racepark Meppen circuit in Germany, the team carried out performance evaluation and validation of a wide range of aspects, such as handling and tyre behavior. Continental worked closely with BRABUS to approve the SportContact 7 up to 340 km/h, specially for the BRABUS 820. The car was able to demonstrate its impressive performance capability with Conti tyres around the tight and twisty circuit, and posted outstanding results across all categories.
