Pirelli refreshes its signature P Zero range

One of the most iconic tyre manufacturer, Pirelli is refreshing its signature P Zero range of tyres. The new range will include three different types of tyres for performance cars with an option for coloured, raised-letter versions normally found on Pirelli’s Formula 1 tyres.

The P Zero range will cater to the premium luxury, sports and super cars. The last one will get the P Zero Corsa range.

The differentiating factor between the first two tyre is the tread pattern. The supersport tyre features fewer tread blocks for dynamic driving and the tyre for premium saloon car features more densely-cut shoulder to increase comfort levels.

The Corsa model for the Supercars has higher land-to-sea void ratio that makes it appear closely to the slick tyres.

According to Pirelli’s presentation, the P Zero tyres utilise multiple compounds on the tread surface. Moreover, the compound combinations is distinct for each of the three tyres.

Some of the physical changes that company is touting for the re-engineered tyres are-

-Rounder profiles for improved grip and cornering accuracy
-New under tread compound for enhanced handling and rolling resistance
-Improved dry and wet performance by using innovative polymers with high mechanical properties
-Redesigned tread pattern with deeper longitudinal grooves for better water displacement

Pirelli showcased the new P Zero line-up earlier at the Geneva Motor Show. Now, the tyres are reaching select group of dealers and trade/business media from 18 countries this week at Portugal’s Autodromo do Estoril circuit.
As per Gregorio Borgo, Pirelli’s GM, the company expects the new line-up to comprise half of the P Zero market this year. He added that there are nine other P Zero SKUs in the portfolio and they will continue to be offered.
