Dunlop the Tyre of Choice for Lancer Evo X
Dunlop has announced that its SP Sport 600 tyres have been chosen as original equipment on Mitsubishi Motors’ new Lancer Evolution X. The high-performance vehicle comes with a new powerful all-aluminium 2.0 litre turbo engine, with power ranging from 295PS and 407Nm of torque to 359PS and 492Nm, depending on the model. Dunlop will meet the task of transmitting that power to the road with its SP Sport 600 in the size 245/40R18 93Y.
Frédéric Schilling, brand director of Dunlop Europe, Middle East and Africa, said that Mitsubishi’s choice of tyre represented a vindication of Dunlop’s sport-centric focus: “Mitsubishi’s approval for its high performance Lancer Evolution X shows once more Dunlop’s ability and commitment to provide the best tyres for today’s most sporty and demanding cars. Dunlop is committed to developing tyres that enable drivers to fully enjoy the performance of their cars – the Lancer Evolution X offers an amazing level of driving pleasure.”
