Audi Relies on SportContact 7 Tires for its RS 6 Avant Performance

12 May 2023

Audi is factory-fitting its RS 6 Avant performance with the Continental SportContact 7 premium tires. Thanks to its outstanding characteristics, the tire has performed impressively in numerous tests and also won over the Ingolstadt-based carmaker. Continental has obtained global approval for equipping the Audi RS 6 Avant performance with the 22-inch version. 

The SportContact 7

The SportContact 7

The SportContact 7 is a high-performance summer tyre designed for powerful, sporty vehicles. The Continental developers focused on achieving the highest perfection in all performance criteria with a view to combining the most enjoyable driving experience possible with the very highest levels of safety and sustainability. Compared to its predecessor, the tire offers reduced wet braking distances by eight percent. In dry braking, the SportContact 7 improves by six percent and mileage is also extended: by 17 percent. Wet and dry handling and grip also benefit from the tire's new development, which is available to customers across the Middle East.

The SportContact 7 for the Audi RS 6 Avant performance also comes with ContiSilent technology, which reduces the rolling noise – perceived as particularly annoying inside the passenger compartment – by as much as nine decibels. This technology takes the form of a special foam layer attached to the inside of the tire tread. This even more effectively blocks the vibrations generated as the tire rolls along the road surface while the vehicle is in motion.

The winner in 11 high-profile independent tire tests

Since being launched on the market, the SportContact 7 has been crowned the winner in 11 high-profile independent tire tests. This spring alone, for example, it came out on top in the summer tire tests organized by the German specialist car magazines, Gute Fahrt, Auto Bild sportscars and Auto Zeitung. The testers were especially impressed by the extremely balanced and highly responsive handling, short wet braking distances and outstanding grip during braking and cornering. In 2022, the English trade magazine, Tire Reviews, named it the test winner.

The BMW Skytop Concept: A Fusion of Classic Inspiration and Modern Design

The BMW Skytop Concept: A Fusion of Classic Inspiration and Modern Design

BMW has once again captivated the automotive world with its latest reveal at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. This year, the German automaker unveiled the Skytop Concept, a stunning two-seater coupe that blends contemporary performance with nostalgic design cues. Despite BMW's assertions that the Skytop draws heavily from past icons like the Z8 and the 503, many see it as a reimagined 8 Series with a targa top.

Adrian van Hooydonk, head of BMW Group Design, describes the Skytop Concept as "a truly unique and exotic design, in the tradition of the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este." He emphasizes that it combines "driving dynamics and elegance at the highest level," akin to its historic predecessors. The parallels to the Z8 roadster are undeniable; the Skytop features thin taillights and a distinctive sharknose front end reminiscent of the early 2000s Z8. Furthermore, the sculpted hood, compact headlights, and unique flat-decked rear are clear nods to the 1950s BMW 503.
