Pirelli has unveiled new ultra-high performance tyre original equipment homologations for the latest Porsche Macan. The Italian manufacturer’s P Zero, Scorpion Verde and Scorpion Verde All Season are available for original fitment on Porsche’s compact SUV sports car in all conditions.
Michael Wendt, managing director of Pirelli Germany’s technical department, commented: “These versions of the P Zero, Scorpion Verde and Scorpion Verde All Season are tailor-made products, precisely engineered to the characteristics, driving dynamics and electronic features of the latest Porsche Macan. In order to distinguish them, these tyres have a dedicated ‘N0’ marking on the sidewall, which denotes tyres that have been specifically created for Porsche.”

In total, Pirelli was granted 266 new original equipment homologations, 213 of which were in the premium or prestige segments.
