Kumho debuts first S-UHP
Kumho has launched a new super ultra high performance, or S-UHP, tyre aimed at cars with a 500hp or higher output. The Ecsta PS91, which recently enjoyed its global debut at the Shanghai International Circuit, is said to incorporate Kumho’s motorsport experience. This reportedly facilitated a marked improvement in high-speed driving safety and cornering. The Korean tyre maker states the Ecsta PS91 delivers “enhanced grip, braking ability, high-speed durability and uniform ride qualities.”
The new range is available in eight sizes for 19 and 20-inch rim diameters. South Korean market prices for the Ecsta PS91 range between KRW 400,000 and 500,000 (£225 and £282); a tuned for European conditions version will be released at a later date, however this will not be available for the 2013 summer season.
