An annual supply of six million ultra-high performance (UHP) tyres for over 200 homologations with diameters ranging from 15 to 21 inches, plus another 250 under development to go into production in the coming years. A long list of prestige and premium models fitted with Pirelli tyres, and a global partnership which, for some time, has gone beyond the confines of Europe, having been established in Latin America, Mexico, China and has now expanded into Russia and the United States of America.
So for “commitment, competitiveness and the ability to innovate, with the development of self-sealing technology that underlines the company’s technological know-how and its ability to face future challenges” Pirelli has won the ‘Global Champion’ sector of the Volkswagen Group Awards, which are made by the car group each year to its best suppliers. Recognition of Pirelli excellence in global partnerships, product quality, competitiveness, project management and flexibility are the headings under which the award was made.
To testify to those qualities there are a lot of models fitted with Pirelli tyres – from the Porsche Carrera, Boxter, Cayenne and Panamera; the Lamborghini Aventador and Gallardo; the Bentley Continental GT and Flying Spur; the Audi A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, Q3, Q7, RS5, RS6 and TT; the Volkswagen Tiguan, Touareg, Phaeton and Golf.
The presentation ceremony took place recently in Dresden. The award was received by Alberto Pirelli, the Group’s vice-president.
