High-tech tuner BRABUS has put its trust in Continental tyres for its high-performance, sports-tuned cars, including what must be the world’s most powerful road-going saloon boasting 800 BHP.
Fitted with the Continental ContiSportContact 5 P in tyre size 255/30 ZR 20 at the front and 305/25 ZR 20 at the rear, The BRABUS 800 sprints to an electronically limited top speed of no less than 218mph. With this level of performance the ContiSportContact 5 P provides the ultimate combination of handling and braking abilities at the limit.
The ContiSportContact 5 P also provides maximum grip for the BRABUS B63-620 and BRABUS 800 iBusiness. Along with its super sports coupes and ultra-high-performance saloons, BRABUS also puts Continental tyres on the 800 Widestar – the tuned version of the Mercedes G 65 AMG. This 4x4 that can hit top speeds of around 155mph runs on 23-inch wheels with ContiCrossContact UHP tyres in size 305/30 ZR 23.
The tuning firm based in Bottrop, Germany, also fits its Bullit Coupe 800, which as the name suggests also packs 800 BHP, with the ContiForceContact, a high-tech, road-legal racing tyre.
“Developing tyres for cars as demanding as the ones turned out by BRABUS is a real challenge,” says Henry Siemons, Head of Tuning at Continental. “What we encounter here is a blend of very powerful acceleration, extremely high speeds and high expectations in terms of handling. We’re delighted that building on the outstanding basis provided by our latest UHP models, Continental can offer BRABUS a very good and balanced solution in this context.”
