Pirelli Launches New P Zero UHP Tyre in Australia
Pirelli Tyres has launched the new P Zero in Australia, its newest and most technologically advanced ultra-high performance tyre.
After two years of development and testing, the latest addition to the P Zero collection features a brand new tread pattern, innovative compounds and structure, and is protected by five exclusive patents.
"The new P Zero is the most advanced product to come out of Pirelli's research and is a revolution for the Australian tyre industry," Managing Director, Pirelli Tyres Australia, Roberto Righi said. "This tyre has been designed and developed to control the extreme performance of supercars and to offer unprecedented performance in all areas of sports handling, comfort and safety."
The new P Zero guarantees optimum performance in wet or dry conditions throughout the lifetime of the tyre, while combining sports handling with comfort. The tyre boasts special nano-composites in the compounds of the tread and the bead (the element of the tyre anchoring it to the wheel rim ) that guarantee a comfortable ride together with sports performance.
The tread compound provides optimum performance even during the first few kilometres when the tyre is still cold.
The innovative tread pattern offers low noise and superior grip in wet conditions, while the asymmetric DA.Co (Dynamic Asymmetric Contour) profile ensures even wear with a consistent footprint at all speeds.
Moreover, the new P Zero has been designed with the utmost respect for the environment as the compounds used contain no aromatic oils.
Thanks to the Hybrid Cord system, the carcass allows the deformation of the tyre profile to be controlled through to speeds up to 370 kph, increasing the durability of the tyre, not simply in terms of outright mileage, but in the consistency of performance throughout its life.
The launch of the new P Zero has further consolidated Pirelli's leadership of the high end tyre market, and the tyre has already been chosen and homologated by manufacturers for use as original equipment on many current and prestigious performance cars.
