Pirelli P Zero


Geneva, March 5, 2013 – A carbon fibre chassis, Kinetic Energy Recovery System, and nearly a thousand horsepower: the new Ferrari puts the power and technology of Formula One firmly onto the road.

Using its experience as exclusive tyre supplier to the pinnacle of world motorsport, Pirelli has developed a bespoke tyre for the latest model to come out of Maranello, which incorporates technology derived from Formula One but with a wider working range suitable for a more extensive variety of conditions.

The new Ferrari, one of the most eagerly-anticipated new models of the year, will use a unique PZero Corsa Asymmetric tyre, in 265/30-19 size at the front and 345/30-20 at the rear.

Pirelli's researchers, working closely with engineers from Ferrari, have increased the contact patch of the tyre. Thanks to the dedicated sizes and larger dimensions of the front tyre, understeer is reduced, which improves turn-in and grip as the car is going through the corner. A significantly lowered shoulder benefits cornering stiffness, improving both the efficiency and reactivity of the car for the driver.

One of the biggest areas of development on the new PZero Asymmetric tyre created for Ferrari was the structure, both front and rear. This was designed asymmetrically to cater for the considerable forces at work on a car capable of accelerating from 0 to 200kph in 7.3 seconds. Furthermore, to obtain the best synergy between the tyre and suspension, Pirelli's engineers differentiated the stiffness of the inner and outer tyre shoulder by about 5%. This ensures the best possible grip and maximum performance stability in all usage conditions.
The compounds for the new dedicated Ferrari PZero Corsa Asymmetric tyre were also specifically formulated to respond to the individual needs of the car. In particular, Pirelli's engineers worked on the mixing process, using latest-generation polymers to simultaneously ensure improved stability and better resistance to mechanical stress.
