The successful cooperation of Pirelli and BMW Group based on many years continues. In this context, various versions of Pirelli's ultra high performance P Zero tire have been specially designed and produced for the new BMW M8.
This specific version of P Zero was born as a result of years of close collaboration between Pirelli and the BMW Group's development and testing units. By applying Pirelli's Perfect Fit philosophy, a P Zero version was developed based on the driving characteristics of the BMW M8. This tire has been fine-tuned to perfectly match the chassis and features of the M8 variations offered by the BMW Group as “coupé” and “cabriolet”. The new BMW homologated tires carry the corresponding markings on their sidewalls and are available in the following sizes: P Zero 275/35 ZR 20 (front axle) and P Zero 285/35 ZR 20 (rear axle).
Reflects the full potential of the new BMW M8
Variation developed for BMW lap compared to original P Zero zammemory performs better in terms of handling, stability, braking on wet and dry roads, vertical and lateral evacuation on wet roads, weight, comfort, noise level and mileage. The specially designed P Zero thus contributes significantly to the BMW M8 realizing its full potential.
The new BMW M8 Coupé and an even more powerful and luxurious version of this high-performance sports car, the BMW M8 Competition Coupé, promise outstanding driving experiences on the road and on the race track. The new BMW M8 Cabriolet and the BMW M8 Competition Cabriolet appeal to convertible enthusiasts. The high-performance Cabriolet offers an even better balance between the practicality of everyday use and motor-inspired performance.
All models are powered by the 4.4 liter V8 twin-turbo petrol engine. “Competition” models have 460 kW / 625 hp. The maximum speed of all models is 250 km / h.
Pirelli engineers made changes to the tire's tread pattern and some other elements to optimize the noise level during rolling to adapt the performance characteristics of the P Zero to the driving qualities of BMW cars. As a result, stronger grip and excellent performance on wet surfaces were also achieved. Engineers used layers of different construction on the carcasses of the front and rear tires to achieve the best possible balance between the front and rear axles of the vehicle. The front tires were produced with a symmetrical carcass structure and the rear tires with an asymmetrical structure. As a result, P Zero's special design variations ensure that the tires offer optimum performance on the BMW M8.
