New Pirelli tires for Ferrari Supercars

Pirelli Collezione line includes F40/F50/Enzo and soon, 288 GTO

Testing of the new Pirelli P Zero Corsa System tire developed specifically for the Ferrari Enzo has concluded today at the Fiorano track. While remaining true to the original in terms of size and aspect ratio, the new tire uses state-of-the-art materials, compounds and technology to deliver levels of grip, performance and safety on a par with those of a modern tire. This P Zero Corsa System tire is available for the Enzo Ferrari in the original 245/35 R19 (front) and 345/35 R19 (rear) sizes and features two different directional and asymmetric tread patterns designed to counter aquaplaning.

Ferrari has also issued official approval for the use of P Zero and P Zero Corsa System tires in the Collezione range already offered by Pirelli as aftermarket products for the F40 and F50. At its launch in 1987 the F40 was the first high-performance car to be equipped with the new Pirelli P Zero tire. Pirelli have now introduced an updated version, in the original sizes of 245/40 R17 (front) and 335/35 R17 (rear), which has been modified to match the original lettering on the tire walls.


The P Zero Corsa System tires of the range for the 1995 Ferrari F50, in the sizes 245/35 R18 (front) and 335/30 R18 (rear), were also subject to development testing at Fiorano to ensure they respect the performance of the original tires in terms of handling characteristics and feel.

Currently under development is the tire to equip the 1984 288 GTO, to which Ferrari will dedicate a Legacy Tour from the 1st to the 4th of October with a route that will take the cars from the Italian Dolomites to Maranello. The tire Pirelli have prepared for the GTO is a P7 Cinturato originally developed from the experience gained in the World Rally Championship since 1974 and then launched on production sports cars in 1976. The first modern tire to feature a low aspect ratio for improved handling, the P7 will be available in the original sizes (225/50 R16 front and 265/50 R16 rear) and again features a period look combined with modern materials and construction technology.

With the official approval of replacement tires for these four legendary supercars, Ferrari again demonstrates its commitment to providing owners of historically important Prancing Horse models with the peace of mind that their cars can be used safely on the roads.
