Continental high-performance summer tyres are being used as original equipment on the new Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance.
The tyre approved is the SportContact 6 in 20 inches with special sidewall marking (MO1B), indicating the tyre was developed specifically for this vehicle.
The SportContact 6 has already impressed with top marks in tests this year by the German car magazines Auto Bild (235/35 R 19), Auto Bild sportscars (265/35 ZR 20) and sport auto (255/35 ZR 19 / 275/35 ZR 19).
It has been approved for the new Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance in 265/40 ZR 20 (104Y) XL and 295/35 ZR 20 (105Y) XL.
Continental says this tyre features innovative force vectoring technology for excellent steering precision and the Black Chili compound, which is specially tailored to the vehicle for the best possible contact between tyre and road surface.
It also enables shorter braking distance and faster acceleration in low and high temperatures and in both wet and dry weather.
