Bridgestone To Supply Tyres For Lamborghini Huracán STO
Published On 25-Nov-2020 23:18:38
The Lamborghini Huracán STO production will begin in early 2021
Lamborghini has chosen Bridgestone as the tire supplier for the Lamborghini Huracán STO, a new super sports car set to be released in 2021.
Bridgestone has developed a tailor-made Potenza tire for the Huracán STO engineering a high-performance tire capable of maximizing the Huracán STO's traction, handling, control, and extreme overall performance, said the tyre maker in a press release.
According to Bridgestone, the Potenza tires apply an asymmetric tread design for enhanced steering response and cornering stability, and an internal crown structure that distributes footprint pressure evenly when cornering. These features, combined with a newly developed tread compound that enhances grip, help to bring the Huracán STO's track-level performance to road users.
The Lamborghini Huracán STO will begin production in early 2021. Along with road-focused, custom-developed Potenza fitment, Bridgestone will also be providing a track-oriented, road-homologated version of the tire that applies "race" technologies to maximize the vehicle's track performance, especially in dry conditions.
