Famous Italian tyre maker Pirelli seems to be one of the most preferred brands to be considered as OEM at this Paris Motor show .
Many popular car makers, including Ferrari, Audi, Land Rover and Porsche, have opted to launch their vehicles with Pirelli tyres. What’s more is that many of these delectable drives come with tyres customized to accentuate the performances.
While tyres on Ferrari models are intended to improve performance, the ones on Porsche Panamera, Land Rover Discovery and Audi Q5 stress on a very quiet and comfortable ride. These tyres make use of Pirelli’s special noise-canceling rubber which reduces the cabin noise by half.
Ferrari, owing to its extensive association with racing sports, has incorporated a few Formula One based technologies in its new iteration of LaFerrari Aperta, tweaking it to deliver a massive 1000 BHP of power. Doing justice to this beast of a machine are Pirelli’s P Zero Corsa Assimetrico tyres in sizes 265/30Z R19 at the front and 345/30Z R20 at rear. These wide sizes improve the contact patch area to provide precise steering control and elevated cornering capabilities.
Another lineup from Ferrari to be launched at Paris Motor Show with Pirelli rubber is the latest offering to come out of Maranello- Ferrari GTC4 Lusso T. This vehicle comes equipped with tyres that offer great comfort with superior performance. The stock P Zero tyres on this machine have 15% less rolling resistance, thereby improving the acceleration.
Pirelli and Audi have worked in close association in order to develop tyres for the latest version of Audi’s ever-so-popular SUV Audi Q5. P Zero tyres on this vehicle come with noise-canceling technology to offer a quiet ride.
Pirelli Scorpion Verde tyres on Land Rover Discovery also makes use of this noise-canceling technology while the Porsche Panamera comes equipped with P Zero tyres with Seal-inside technology to render the tyres a self-repairing capability in the event of a puncture.
