Pirelli P Zero

Reduced weight for the bespoke PZero tyres fitted to Maserati's latest flagship...

Geneva, March 5, 2013 – Italian elegance, technology and passion combine in the new partnership between Pirelli and Maserati. Pirelli's engineers have developed a bespoke version of the PZero tyre for the new Quattroporte, which sits at the top of Maserati's model range.

The PZero tyres that are made to measure for Maserati carry 'MGT' markings on their sidewalls: a hallmark of their uniqueness and the way that they perfectly fit the needs and characteristics of the Italian manufacturer. These new tyres are the result of close collaboration between Maserati's engineers and Pirelli's researchers, who concentrated in particular on reducing the weight of the tyres.

To guarantee high performance on a car that weighs 1900 Kg, Pirelli's engineers reduced the mass of the belt package, resulting in an overall weight reduction for each tyre equivalent to between 5-7%, on both the front and rear.

As well as this, the PZero also features a unique design, with an asymmetric tread pattern on the rear that helps to ensure maximum grip even in wet conditions. The latest Maserati was launched to international media equipped with 20-inch PZero tyres in the following sizes: 245/40/20 at the front and285/35/20 at the back.

With a 530-horsepower engine and a top speed of 307kph, the new Quattroporte is also available on 19-inch Ultra High Performance PZero tyres, in 245/45/19 on the front and 275/40/19 on the back.

Pirelli is currently developing a new 21-inch P Zero tyre, which will be available in the next few months, to meet the needs of Maserati's most sporting customers.

PZero represents the ultimate in Pirelli's research technology, offering the most demanding motorists the highest possible standards in every area: performance, reactivity, comfort and safety. This is always combined with respect for the environment, which has also become synonymous with Pirelli.
To create a product that offers excellent performance along with high environmental standards, one of the key areas of development addressed by Pirelli was a reduction in CO2 emissions. The work carried out on the tyre design, with the introduction of new-generation internal and tread pattern compounds, has led to a 15% reduction in rolling resistance compared to conventional tyres.

The bespoke 19 and 20 inch tyres developed specifically for Maserati are produced in Pirelli's Settimo Torinese facility, while the 21-inch tyre will be made at the Next Mirs plant in Milan: the most advanced fully-robotized tyre production line in the world.
