Aston Martin has selected Bridgestone as the official tyre partner for the marque’s new driver-focused V8 Vantage S.
Ultra high performance Potenza RE050A 19-inch tyres have been selected to equip the coupé and roadster versions of the 430-horespower sports car, with size 245/40 on the front wheels and 285/35 on the rear.
The asymmetric Potenza RE050A is a perfect match for the V8 Vantage S: not only can it handle the car’s great power on the road, enhancing the dynamic driving experience. It also complements the refined ride for which Aston Martin is renowned.
Didier Schneider, Vice President Original Equipment, Bridgestone Europe, said: “Bridgestone is the major tyre partner to Aston Martin and we are proud to continue the relationship with the superb new V8 Vantage S.”
The Bridgestone partnership with Aston Martin began in the early 1990s with the DB7. Since then, ultra high performance Potenza RE050 tyres have been standard factory fitment on the DB9 and V8 Vantage models, with the Potenza S001 fitted on Aston Martin’s elegant 4-door Rapide.
