Continental has received further approvals from Europe's leading automotive manufacturers, with Audi recently approving its tyres for a number of its vehicles.

The ContiSportContact 5 tyre has been approved as original equipment for the Audi A3 and flagship A8, whilst the A6, A6 Allroad, A7 and RS6 Quattro will feature the ContiSportContact 5 P.

Both the ContiSportContact 5 and ContiSportContact 5 P are high-performance tyres specifically designed for use on dynamic and powerful cars. Delivering maximum safety and driving pleasure, the tyres offer excellent grip on both wet and dry roads, impressive handling properties and shorter braking distances in all weather conditions.

"We are really pleased with the news that Continental tyres have again been selected as original equipment by a leading performance car manufacturer," Mitchell Golledge, Marketing Manager, Continental Tyres of Australia said.

"This approval from Audi, coupled with recent approvals from Mercedes AMG and Maserati also, really does confirm Continental's leading market position in European original equipment with passenger tyres."

Continental is one of the top four tyre manufacturers in the world, with its products fitted as original equipment on one in every three European built cars.
