Pirelli Develops New Tire Specific To New McLaren Sports Car

PIRELLI P-ZERO AND MCLAREN SENNA:
A SHARED JOURNEY FROM TRACK TO ROAD

 

Milan – Pirelli and McLaren have started a new chapter in their long-standing technical partnership, which will be one of the most challenging in history. Namely, Pirelli has developed tires to guarantee the very highest performance levels on and off track for the new McLaren Senna, a special car with unique characteristics.

 

The new tires that will equip the British hypercar are extreme versions of both the Pirelli P Zero Trofeo and P Zero tires. The P Zero Trofeo tire developed for the Senna, while conceived as a track tire, can also be used for the road. In the same way, the P Zero tire – by nature more of a road tire – is additionally suitable for use on the track.

 

To come up with the best quality product, Pirelli’s engineers relied on an extensive shared history with McLaren – especially its tire development for the P1 – and most importantly, lessons learned from motorsport.

 

The McLaren Senna is an explicit sports car, reminiscent of a GT3 machine for the road. This is thanks to massive power (800 horsepower), an extremely light carbon fiber chassis, a sophisticated race-derived suspension system and cutting-edge aerodynamics.

 

These headlining characteristics required made-to-measure tires capable of withstanding extreme acceleration and aerodynamic loads.

 

Pirelli paid particular attention to materials to reach the targeted objectives, choosing those most suited to state-of-the-art performance, with light weight and optimal design ensuring perfect reliability and strategic durability.

 

All of these elements combined guarantees perfect balance and roadholding, with precise turn-in, impressive stability and maximum traction under all driving conditions, as well as reduced braking distances.

 

In particular, the innovative tire design with its asymmetric profiles and sidewalls delivers optimal lateral grip and maximizes the interaction between front and rear axles.
