Continental High Performance for the BRABUS 820

From exposed carbon-fibre aerodynamic elements to a sport exhaust system, tuning house BRABUS is now offering an exclusive programme of refinements for the latest, 992-generation Porsche 911 Turbo S in Cabriolet and Coupé form. And BRABUS has also added SportContact 7 high-performance tyres from Continental – approved exclusively for speeds of up to 211mph – to the mix.

Maximum speed thanks to high performance from Continental

With 820 horsepower and 950 Nm, the Porsche 911 Turbo S-based BRABUS 820 accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in just 2.5 seconds, and the top speed of the luxury high-performance supercar is electronically limited to 211 mph. Figures at this elevated end of the spectrum require a tyre that can withstand the centrifugal forces at play and make the most of the car’s performance. That’s why the SportContact 7 tyre from Continental has been specially approved up to the maximum speed for the BRABUS 820. The high-performance tyre with BlackChili compound delivers outstanding driving pleasure  and superb handling on both wet and dry surfaces. The summer tyre comes in 255/30 ZR 21 fitment for the front axle and 335/25 ZR 22 for the rear. Forged Monoblock Z “PLATINUM EDITION” wheels from BRABUS – available in various sizes – reinforce the sports car’s wedge shape.

Testing the BRABUS masterpiece promise

Before the new BRABUS 820 could be registered for road use, the quality and performance of the supercar were put to the test under the watchful eye of BRABUS CTO Jörn Gander and with Porsche Supercup driver Lance David Arnold at the wheel. At the Racepark Meppen circuit in Germany, the team carried out the performance evaluation and validation of a wide range of aspects, such as handling and tyre behaviour. “We worked closely with BRABUS to approve the SportContact 7 up to 211 mph, especially for the BRABUS 820. The car was able to demonstrate its impressive performance capability with our tyres around the tight and twisty circuit, and posted outstanding results across all categories,” reported Michael Schneider, Head of Tuning at Continental.
