Pirelli has specifically developed new P Zero Corsa tyres for the latest Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT as original equipment.
The tyre maker says these summer tyres have been designed both for track and road driving, using a compound directly derived from its extensive experience in motorsport, following Pirelli’s ‘perfect fit’ strategy, with the objective of meeting Porsche’s performance requirements.
The Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT is equipped with P Zero Corsa tyres in 285/35ZR22 XL (106 Y) size at the front and 315/30ZR22 XL (107 Y) size on the rear with the marking NO which identifies the dedicated tyres developed for Porsche.
The P Zero Corsa tyres were developed in collaboration with some of the world’s leading high-performance carmakers.
Pirelli says the structure and compound of the tread pattern delivers optimal handling in all driving conditions as well as perfect traction and braking on both wet and dry surfaces.
Thanks to the dual compound and asymmetric design of the tread pattern, there’s the right balance between speed and grip, as well as strong resistance to the high energy loads generated by the strong performance of the cars to which these tyres are fitted, according to Pirelli.
It adds that the prominent blocks on the shoulder of the tyre and continuous central groove benefit high performance when cornering, keeping the car on the right line.
There are more than 30 sizes available for the Pirelli P Zero Corsa between 19 and 22 inches. Some of these sizes are offered with Pirelli’s noise-cancelling system (PNCS).
This consists of a sound-deadening material within the actual tyre that soaks up air vibrations and so reduces road noise.
