Pirelli develops new P Zero tyre for NSX Type S

Pirelli has developed a new P Zero tyre exclusively for the NSX Type S, utilising advanced modeling technology developed through years of motorsports experience.

With a performance output of 592bhp, the 2022 Type S is Honda’s most powerful NSX to date. Only 350 units will be built, with 300 of those being sold in the United States, where it is known as the Acura NSX.

The Japanese supercar will be fitted with bespoke P Zero tyres sized 245/35ZR19 at the front and 305/30ZR20 at the rear.

Pirelli says the tyres feature an asymmetric tread pattern for excellent steering precision, rear stability and high grip in wet and dry conditions and Ultra High Performance tread compounds to provide outstanding handling and braking performance.

Along with the increase to front and rear track, the new tyres contribute to a six per cent increase in lateral grip, according to Pirelli.

Each bespoke Pirelli P Zero for the 2022 NSX Type S has the “H0” marking on the sidewall indicating that it has been specially developed with Acura to enhance the performance of the supercar.
