“The Lingenfelter team has worked side-by-side with Continental Tire for several years and is our preferred tire brand. The synergies between our companies make this agreement the next logical step,” said Ken Lingenfelter, owner, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. “Continental’s performance tire capabilities complement Lingenfelter’s performance tuning expertise, which will help us get the most from our vehicles, on and off the track.”

In March of 2012, a Lingenfelter-tuned ZL1 Camaro, equipped with Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires, became the first to exceed 200 mph, hitting 202.67 mph at Continental’s Uvalde Proving Grounds in Uvalde, Texas.

“Lingenfelter is known for its performance tuning expertise, and it’s an honor to be aligned with such a noteworthy brand,” said Tony Talbert, tuning key account manager for Continental Tire. “We believe that our 140-year history of building technology-leading, high-performance tires is a great match with such a legend in the world of performance cars and racing. Continental recognizes Lingenfelter’s pursuit of excellence and that, combined with our technology-driven products, is a powerful combination.”
