HSV Selects Continental ContiSportContact 5P for the new VF HSV Commodore Range


HSV has appointed Continental to supply the tyres for its new GEN-F range, including the 430kW GTS.
All vehicles in the range will be fitted with the supplier’s ContiSportContact 5P tyre, measuring 255/35 R20 tyres on the front wheels and 275/35 R20 tyres at the rear.
“After an extensive development and testing program, we have chosen Continental tyres as standard fitment on GTS and, in fact across our entire GEN-F range,” said HSV Chief Engineer, Joel Stoddart.
“The new tyres, custom tuned for HSV, deliver exceptional performance in wet and dry conditions. And, our testing around Winton Raceway in Victoria, piloted by HRT driver, Garth Tander, has seen the Continental tyres deliver significant improvements in lap times.”
Continental claims that the tyres chosen for GEN-F have been “specifically designed to meet the ambitious expectations of the luxury and sports vehicle manufacturers, such as HSV.”
“We feel extremely honoured that HSV has selected our ContiSportContact 5P to feature on its new line-up,” said Mitchell Golledge, Marketing Manager for Continental Tyres of Australia. (photo courtesy of http://www.motoring.com.au)
