Michelin has developed a new Pilot Sport Cup 2 K2 ultra-high performance tyre for Ferrari’s new 488 Pista supercar. The new model will run on 245/35 ZR20 (front) and 305/30 ZR20 (rear) sizes, with the tyre manufacturer’s latest generation road-legal track tyre co-developed specially with Ferrari.
Michelin will supply Pilot Sport 4 tyres to all 1,955 production models of the Alpine A110 First Edition. Exhibited at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the car is fitted with 205/40ZR18 front and 235/40ZR18 rear sizes. The Pilot Sport 4s were designed to complement the character of the car, with Michelin’s engineers completing the development process over two years and more than 3,000km on tracks including the Michelin Technology Center in Ladoux, Charade Circuit in France and at Idiada in Spain.
