The initials ‘AR’ betray Pirelli’s development collaboration with Alfa Romeo
The new Giulia Quadrifoglio is, as evo magazine puts it, the car that “could potentially re-launch” Alfa Romeo. The saloon can sprint from 62mph in just 3.9 seconds and its 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 sends a healthy 503bhp to the rear wheels. This power comes in contact with the road through Pirelli tyres – the P Zero Corsa has been selected as the Giulia Quadrifoglio’s original equipment fitment.
Pirelli rubber is to be fitted on the new Alfa’s front axle in size 245/35ZR19, with size 285/30ZR19 tyres mounted on the rear. As is the case with all Pirelli tyres homologated by Alfa Romeo, the P Zero Corsa features the initials ‘AR’ on the sidewall. Pirelli reports that its tyre was tailored for the Giulia Quadrifoglio over a ten-month period.
