Pirelli P Zero, the ultimate sports tyre

Pirelli has chosen Melbourne for its new luxury tyre “boutique”. Indeed, this Australian town boasts the highest number of registrations of prestigious vehicles. The tyre brand, also known for its transalpine roots, has opened its store close to the largest Italian community in Australia.

Not forgetting that Pirelli is the exclusive tyre supplier for motorsports, including Formula 1 amongst others. This puts it in a dominant position for vehicles from top-end brands such as Ferrari, Lamborghini and Maserati. These supercars were on parade for the opening ceremony of P Zero World in Melbourne while others, the Aventador S and Huracàn Evo made the P Zero tyres squeal on the track. Whereas the Urus, fitted with tyres with the Lamborghini marking, demonstrated its capabilities off-road.

Besides exhibiting this supercar, Pirelli wanted to underline the quality and versatility of its tyre range: the P Zero and P Zero Corsa are designed for sporty on-road use and the Scorpion Winter and All Season are for those who want to drive off-road.
