Dear all. All new Continental Sport contact 6 launched. But think targeted at 19 to 22 inch. Maybe just launch. Wonder when will arrive in our shore.tContinental-SportContact-6.jpg

 

 

http://www.tyrerevie...First-Drive.htm

 

 

 

The Continental Sport Contact 6 is here, and it's fantastic!

Launched 1st September, the new Sport Contact 6 replaces the Sport Contact 5P as Continentals maximum performance summer tyre for sports cars. Initially available in 19 to 23 inches, the Sport Contact 6 pushes the tyre towards the segment the Michelin Pilot SuperSport currently occupies, and while it's not quite as track orientated, it should give the Michelin a little competition for those who enjoy fast road driving.

Already Proven

While the Sport Contact 6 is new to market, it's already a proven tyre. The Sport Contact 6 is the OE tyre for the new Honda Civic Type R, which recently destroyed the Nurburgring FWD record, setting a 7:50.63, only 10 seconds slower than a Porsche Cayman GT4! To further prove the capabilities of the new tyre, Continental invited TyreReviews to Bilster Berg Race Resort in Germany to learn about, and test the Sport Contact 6.

Development

Our biggest criticism of the outgoing tyre has always been steering feel. The Sport Contact 5 and 5P were never short of wet grip, wet or dry braking performance, or even good levels of comfort, but for a sports tyre they felt sluggish, soft and frankly, unsporty.

The engineers at Continental have worked hard to address this. They've designed the tread pattern with "force vectoring", which helps transfer the forces more evenly through the tyre to give a stable cornering force, and added a new "Aralon 350" belt to the carcass, to give the tyre structure higher stability at speed. We'll cover both these technologies in detail over the next few days, but the simple version is they give the tyre a 14% better steering precision over the Sport Contact 5P and 11% better dry handling. When combined with 7% better wear (another weakness of the outgoing tyre), 7% less noise and 10% higher high speed stability, the result is a very capable tyre.

Our Testing

Sadly at the launch Continental didn't provide the previous tyre to directly compare against, but what they did offer us was the ability to run on the tyre in both the dry and wet, on various vehicles.

In the dry, on a VW Golf R, the tyre was impressive. Bilster Berg might have a new surface with a high coefficient of grip, but the tyre was still monstered the lap, giving plenty of lovely feedback right to the limit, and a nice progressive slide past the limit. The same was true of the tyre on the Porsche Cayman GTS, Mercedes A45 and Audi RS3 in the wet, with the Sport Contact 6 harnessing the all wheel drive nature of the Audi and Mercedes to provide quite astonishing traction, and when using the RWD Porsche in torrential rain, still providing incredible grip, communication and balance.

 

Conclusion

Continental simply don't make bad tyres, and while the Sport Contact 5 and 5P never really excited us, they were nearly always best in class when tested.

Now with the Sport Contact 6, Continental have produced an exciting, world class sport tyre. Tyre tests in 2016 are going to be extremely interesting!

If you're interested in the technical details we'll be publishing a technical report on the Sport Contact 6 over the next few days, otherwise be sure to leave a review if you buy yourself a set.

Road test for CSC 6.

Continental SportContact 6: Rezulteo’s test

 

The SportContact 6 is tyre manufacturer Continental’s new sports tyre. Crowned by a recent record on the Nürburgring track equipping the Honda Civic Type R, the SportContact 6 is set to become a future benchmark in its category.

Given the opportunity to test Continental’s new SportContact 6, we were in for a great track performance surprise - Copyright © : Continental
 

Returning with its 6th generation, Continental is changing the name of its new sports tyre. From ContiSportContact, it now becomes SportContact. A desire to simplify, but not reflected in this newcomer’s especially advanced development.

For many years now, the German tyre manufacturer’s sports range has set the benchmark, whether it be for its 5 version or the more radical 5P. As a result, the "SC6" carries a heavy load on its shoulders, but its teaser launch demonstrates its enormous potential.
Indeed, this tyre has been used on the new Honda Civic Type R, the most powerful front wheel drive in the world, setting the fastest lap time in its category on the Nürburgring track (7'50''63). Logically, the SC6 equips this car as standard, an achievement that demonstrates the undeniable efficiency of this tyre.

 

continental-sportcontact-6_vl.jpgCopyright © : Continental

 

Even sportier!

Continental announced it: the SportContact 6 is even sportier than its predecessor, and moves closer to its 5P version.

Clearly engineered for very high performance vehicles, type Audi R8 or Porsche 911, it has been developed to deliver a unique driving experience while maintaining a very high level of safety.

 

Technologically sophisticated

To progress in all areas, the SC6 is not a revised version of its predecessor, but a new tyre integrating new developments, with a specific focus on certain features:  

  • The tread design is optimised to improve the transfer of forces, therefore efficiency and responsiveness
  • The rubber compound adapts to the road surface to create a suction effect.

This tyre is significantly better than its predecessor. Up to 14% better in certain areas.  

Discover the video of the SportContact 6 in action:

 

Test on the Blister Berg ...

Continental opted to launch its new tyre on the Blister Berg Track in Germany, not unlike a "mini-Nürburgring": different altitudes, change of pace ... many difficulties that could have a negative impact on the SportContact 6.


... On the dry …

With its flat-6 engine delivering 340hp, the Cayman GTS was ideal to evaluate the SportContact 6. Its perfectly balanced chassis provided a good indication of the quality of tyres.

In terms of pure sporting ability, the test on the fast part of the track circuit allowed the progress made in comparison with the ContiSportContact 5 to be assessed. The tyre immediately gave the impression that the car locks into the corners when entering them with millimetric precision. Steering changes and hard braking revealed the precision and responsive nature of the tyre. The sensations felt are half way between those of a standard sports tyre and those of a semi-slick.

 

essai-sportcontact6-virage_vl.jpgCopyright © : Continental

 

 

... And in the rain!

The first laps of the track highlighted the tyre’s typical “dry asphalt” nature.  As a result, when Continental announced its excellent performance in wet conditions, we were curious to check this out since these are usually opposing performances. With this in mind, the torrential rain that suddenly fell on the track was considered to be good news.

It was now time to change vehicles and tackle the twisty part of the track. For this exercise, three sports cars equipped with all wheel drive were available: an Audi RS3 (340hp), a Mercedes Class A45 AMG (360hp), and a Volkswagen Golf 7 R (300hp). 

In these conditions, the first corners were taken with caution due to the significant amount of water crossing the track and the risk of losing grip. Despite the bad weather, the SportContact 6 proved imperial on each of these three vehicles and was impressive, even in terms of its positioning.

The SC6 turns out to be very stable when taking bends at high speed, with a good steering response and no sudden loss of grip. Even when it is taken to the limit of its grip, this tyre is progressive and responsive

To conclude, the SportContact 6 is in a class of its own. Even if it is developed specifically for drivers looking for a high performance product, it by no means overlooks safety issues or driving pleasure

Available dimensions:

The SportContact 6 is currently available in 41 sizes ranging from 19 to 23 inches. Other sizes will be available in the coming months.

you should have ask for csc5 (no P) correct me if I am wrong

many [thumbsdown] is generally because of expectation

just 1 asl how is the fuel consumption of Ferrari / Porsche ? My personal answer is [thumbsdown] vs  Mercedes E250 [thumbsup]

according to Singapore continental official agent no news from them about CSC6 yet

I always heard people when buying new car don't buy the early batch shipment (best after 6 to 12 months after running on the road)

because they want to make the early batch owner test the car for them [bounce2]

ever heard tyre company claimed that why they do not want to release some of their product to our shore is they want the product to be on the ground of some market first before they can reach here.

The csc6 owner must have also used PSS before in order to tell... some drivers who are on Michelin will change to another Michelin. .same as conti users of csc5 will change to CSC6. .dont think these 2 tyres are bad enough that the users switch brand.

Is anybody on these SportContact 6 tyres yet? Any feedback as compared to the CSC5?

Currently only 19"..

Conti states average of 12% performance all aspects over csc5.. I'm running low air on my csc5 to run them out faster hehe

Saw the CSC6 today.  Material felt harder than PSS to the hand.  Threadwear is 240 which is also lower than PSS.  Didn't enquire further as the tyres didn't belong to me and were due to be fitted to a car.

CSC6 comes stock on Civic Turbo Type-R. Test drive and turns in well, maybe have to do with the suspension geometry, not known if anyone change PSS on a civic turbo tho.

Guess is too new to judge perhaps..

Saw some conti 6 displayed on rack already at a tyre shop at ubi when i sent my rims for touch up

looks like these tyres have better wet grip probably due to their asymentric design?

for price comparison, the PSS seems a better deal on 19"

 

For long haul I still prefer the GY Assy 2

- used Contact5 for years

- went over a nail, changed two tyres to Falkens

- skidded at a bend at expressway on a drizzling day, at only 80km/hr

- after months of repair and NCD gone, changed back to Contact5

- so far so good

 

the accident made me paranoid over wet grip, hence i will support the Contact6
