They are already the tyres fitted as standard on the Aston Martin Rapide and the Ferrari 458 Italia, now Bridgestone’s latest ultra high performance tyres are available in the replacement market.
The Potenza S001 tyres, which are designed for maximum sports performance and deliver high efficiency with reduced rolling resistance, are aimed at the world’s top sports cars and high-powered luxury vehicles.
Bridgestone claims: “Reliving the motor-sport heritage of Potenza tyres, the S001 is designed to give the world’s most powerful sports models even sportier handling and higher efficiency than the current Potenza RE050(A) it complements.
“With factory fitments on the Aston Martin Rapide and Ferrari 458 Italia, the Potenza S001 clearly meets the challenging demands of both heavier luxury sports cars and the new breed of lighter, extreme sport models.”
The Potenza S001 is available initially in 19 sizes (18” to 20” rims) in the replacement market throughout Europe.
