Pirelli P Zero PZ4

Pirelli P Zero (2016) is the unique Ultra High Performance product combining Pirelli’s knowledge gained from designing race car tires with Pirelli’s alliance with the top car manufacturers who know exactly what the perfect tires should be in terms of improving the performance of powerful sports cars and executive class passenger cars.

Pirelli has been manufacturing tires of the P Zero line since 1986 for over three decades, and its previous incarnation — the P Zero 2007 model — has scored numerous industry awards during its lifetime. It is quite obvious, however, that this is not the limit for the Italian tire maker.

The honor of opening the fourth decade of production of this truly timeless model was bestowed upon the Pirelli P Zero 2016 model. And, in order to make the premier still more intriguing, the tire maker is offering not just one but two modifications of the PZero model, designed to be installed on deluxe sedans and sports cars.

Aquaplaning Shield
Safety on Wet Road

As one would expect, the sports car version of the tire was designed for such acclaimed carmakers as Ferrari, McLaren, Lamborghini and BMW, while the deluxe sedan version — for stunning cars made by Audi and BMW.

In the sports car version, the tire’s shoulder area features larger tread blocks for stronger dry grip and better lateral stability, while the outer shoulder area of the deluxe sedan Pirelli P Zero tire was designed with a focus on improving ride comfort, reducing noise emission, and increasing hydroplaning resistance.

Adaptive Grip Compound
Improved Braking

The P Zero 2016 model incorporates a few new technologies that make it fundamentally different from its predecessor. The upgraded formula of the undertread rubber compound improved handling response and ensured a lower rolling resistance.

Extended Range Profile

The innovative polymers with «cutting-edge mechanical properties» helped to improve dry and wet grip, while the optimized tread pattern with deeper circumferential grooves increased the tire’s hydroplaning resistance.

In the Pirelli P Zero last-version tread compound, silicon dioxide accounts for 80% of the total volume, which improved wet grip and reduced rolling resistance by 15%.

In spite of the appearance of the new upgraded version of the model, the 2007 tires will not be taken out of production. According to the manufacturer, in 2017 both modifications would be manufactured in a 50–50 ratio. Later on, however, the production volumes of the previous-generation PZero model would come to zero.
