The latest stable of supercars are set to hit the road on Pirelli P Zero tyres, according to the Italian tyres manufacturer.
The Alfa Romeo 8C Spider, Ferrari 599 HGTE and Aston Martin V12 Vantage will all be launched with the Pirelli car tyres as original equipment (OE).
Initially presented at the Geneva motor show, the Alfa Romeo 8C Spider is scheduled for an official launch at Balocco end of June where it will be fitted with P Zero tyres (245/35 ZR20 and 285/35 ZR20).
According to the company, the P Zero represents the latest evolution in tyre design from the Pirelli research team and is covered by five patents.
For the Ferrari 599 P Zero developers modified the tyre’s compound for improved sportiness, so it has become something like the P Zero Corsa in sizes (245/35ZR20 and 305/35ZR20).
Finally, the British super-sport Aston Martin V12 Vantage went straight for the P Zero Corsa sports tyres (255/35ZR19 and 295/30ZR19).
Being awarded O/E contracts is vital for tyres manufacturers. The aim is that if the car owner is satisfied with a tyres performance on a new vehicle, they will remain loyal to that brand when it comes to ordering replacements.
