2007 saw the birth of AMS branding and the first Pirelli P Zero™ 20” tyres to be specifically created for the British Aston Martin DBS supercar. The Aston Martin One-77 appeared at the Paris Motor Show in 2008, with production amounting to 77 exclusive examples of pure technology and sophistication, built between 2009 and 2011. Pirelli technicians, together with Aston Martin engineers, created special P Zero™ tyres that could deal effortlessly with 0 to 100 km/h in less than four seconds. This close collaboration between Pirelli and Aston Martin was strengthened when 19” P Zero™ and P Zero™ Corsa were mounted on the 12-cylinder Vantage, including its S and Roadster versions, in 2009. On the 50th anniversary of the Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato, the stunning Aston Martin V12 won the 2011 Villa d’Este elegance competition. The 2013 Aston Martin DB9 was equipped with AMS-homologated 20” P Zero™, while in 2015, the Aston Martin Vanquish also mounted Pirelli P Zero™ on 20” wheels. November 2017: an exclusive lap of the track by young Formula 1 driver Max Verstappen, during which Aston Martin’s Dynamics Chief Engineer Matt Becker outlines the distinctive features of a camouflaged version of the new 2018 Vantage. The video immediately went viral, setting just the right tone prior to the official presentation of the new British sportscar. Thanks to the combined efforts of Pirelli and Aston Martin technicians and engineers, the new 2018 Aston Martin Vanquish is equipped with new and exclusive Pirelli P Zeros™.
