Continental SportContact 7 OE on Maserati models
Maserati has opted to use the recently-launched Continental SportContact 7 as original equipment on its Levante and Quattroporte vehicles. The Italian marque will fit the SportContact 7 to the Levante in sizes 265/40 ZR21 FR (101Y) at the front and 295/35 ZR21 FR (103Y) on the rear axle. The Maserati Quattroporte will wear the Continental tyre in sizes 245/35 ZR21 FR (96Y) and 285/30 ZR21 FR (100Y).
“In order to bring the extraordinary power of a Maserati safely to the road at all times for an optimal driving experience without compromise, the tyres, as the only connection to the asphalt, must perfectly match the respective model and thus optimally support the car’s performance,” says Dr Holger Lange, head of tyre development for Continental’s original equipment business, continuing: “To capture the specific requirements for each vehicle model, Continental works closely with vehicle manufacturers to develop the optimal tyre.”
