Pirelli and Lamborghini consolidate their technological partnership. The engineers from the Bicocca facility have developed a bespoke version of the P Zero™ tyre for the new Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster. The new Roadster was presented to the international press at the Homestead circuit and on the streets of Florida with its special new Pirelli +1” fitment of 255/30ZR20 fronts and 355/25ZR21 rears.
The P Zero™ tyres specially designed for the new Aventador are the result of a joint venture between Pirelli researchers and Lamborghini engineers who have managed to develop an innovative solution capable of guaranteeing optimum stability, comfort and handling to a vehicle that can accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in just 3 seconds and boast a top speed of 350 kph.
In order to provide the optimum solution for the Lamborghini’s four-wheel-drive design, casings have been used with special materials and harder compounds capable of restricting tyre deformation and maintaining high performance and rolling resistance under all operating conditions. The new P Zero™ tyres are designed to ensure maximum grip and adapt quickly to gear changes, thus allowing all of the whole enhanced supercar’s horsepower.
The new Aventador LP 700-4 Roadster is only the latest in a long history of joint technological developments: indeed, the partnership between Pirelli and Lamborghini dates back to the time of the latter’s first farm tractors.
