ERJ staff report (BC)
Boulogne-Billancourt – Tire manufacturer Michelin and carmaker Ferrari teamed up to develop the Pilot Sport Cup 2 tire for the new Ferrari 458 Speciale sports car.
Michelin says that track and simulator tests verified that three project objectives had been achieved: faster lap times on dry asphalt, consistent performance “lap after lap” and optimal grip on wet roads.
Tire sizes for the Ferrari 458 Speciale are 245/35 ZR 20 91 Y at the front and 305/30 ZR 20 103 Y at the rear.
