The Pirelli P Zero beat off 15 competitors to take top spot in the recent Auto Express tyre test. The magazine holds the test annually, and grades the tyre according to several criteria. They test the performance of the tyres in key areas, such as dry handling, wet handling, aquaplaning, braking in wet and dry conditions and rolling resistance.
The Pirelli P Zero came first in the wet tests, prompting Auto Express to say, “None of our contenders inspired as much confidence as the Pirelli, which felt spot-on as soon as we turned into the corner. Grip was plentiful too”. They also came out top in the dry handling test. Auto Express praised the tyre, saying, “What’s required for a strong performance in the wet normally counts against a tyre in dry conditions, and vice versa. But the Pirelli bucks the trend and, unlike most of its competitors here, is superb whatever the weather.”
