Although relatively confidential in terms of volume, the super sport market is a driving force for the automobile industry. Any self-respecting tyre manufacturer must offer an ultra-high performance tyre range. This is Dunlop’s case with its new Sport Maxx Race.

This exceptional tyre is designed for ultra-high performance sports cars such as the Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series, Porsche 997 GT3BMW M5Audi TT-RSAudi R8. Building on race-derived state-of-the-art technology, the Sport Maxx Race aims for efficiency and pure driving pleasure.  From a technical standpoint, the challenge for this type of product consists in combining the features of both sport and road tyres. In other words, the tyre must be able to withstand the extreme stresses it is subjected to during a day on the track and provide optimum safety when driving on wet roads.
