Dunlop Sport Classic tops Auto Bild Klassik’s vintage tire test for second year in a row

en de

The Dunlop Sport Classic acknowledges like no other vintage tire that classic vehicles deserve modern technologies when it comes to handling and braking performance while maintaining that old-school look and feel. By winning the Auto Bild Klassik vintage tire test for the second consecutive year, Dunlop shows that it knows exactly how to respond to those consumer needs.

Auto Bild Klassik recognized the Dunlop Sport Classic for its precise steering, very good aquaplaning performance, short braking distance on a wet surface and overall its harmonic driving experience.

The Dunlop Sport Classic stood out in multiple wet tests. When driving on Dunlop, the car - an Austin Healy 3000 - only started aquaplaning at a speed of 92,5 km/h, winning this wet grip test by a landslide. The average speed the other seven tires could maintain before aquaplaning was 80,1 km/h. The Dunlop tires also propelled the Austin to the shortest lap time on a wet track thanks to its optimal grip in wet conditions.

Lastly, the Dunlop Sport Classic recorded the third best performance in both wet braking when driving 100 km/h – 51,8 meters on a test average of 57 meters – and wet handling: bolstering the Austin Healy 3000 to an average speed of 68,9 km/h compared to a test average of 65,8 km/h. With an average speed of 82km/h on a dry Austrian Wachauring track, the Dunlop Sport Classic topped all other tires in the dry handling test.  

Piotr Nagalski, Director Marketing Consumer Europe: “We are delighted to see that the Dunlop Sport Classic is once again best in class. This second consecutive win shows that Dunlop is the reigning champion when it comes to vintage tires.”
