Bespoke P Zero tyres for Aston Martin

A super light body made from aluminium and carbon fibre, a twin-turbo V12 engine, a top speed of 211 mph: the new Aston Martin DBS Superleggera coupe is sure to win the hearts of the British brand’s fans.

Pirelli P Zero tyres have been chosen to equip the beast. Available in 265/35 R21 at the front and 305/30 R21 at the rear, these tyres have been specifically developed for the new Aston Martin supercar. This coupe which will replace the Aston Martin Vanquish, also shod with Pirelli P Zero tyres, is much lighter (“Superleggera” means “super light” in Italian) than the DB11 on which it is based. Still as stunning and sporting a bolder front grill, it has a kerb weight of 1800 kg. Above all, the DBS Superleggera's aerodynamics generate a total of 180 kg of downforce at full speed. A specificity that is hard on tyres and more particularly on the rear, hence the need to supply wider tyres for the rear axle.

According to Pirelli, the P Zero tyres developed for the Aston Martin DBS Superleggera deliver optimum road grip and work perfectly with the electronic suspension system. The car will be available by the end of the year.
