In the world of high-performance automobiles, every detail matters. And that is what the Pirelli P Zero Trofeo RS was designed to do. Conquer the road.
Pirelli has raised the bar even higher with the introduction of the P Zero Trofeo RS – a semi-slick tyre specifically crafted to optimise the performance of the most dynamic and powerful vehicles on the market.
One of the most notable collaborations showcasing the capabilities of the P Zero Trofeo RS is with none other than Pagani Automobili, the creators of some of the world’s most extraordinary hypercars. Pagani requested a customised version of this tyre for their latest masterpiece – the Utopia.
The P Zero Trofeo RS represents a significant technical advancement from its predecessor, the P Zero Trofeo R. However, it goes beyond mere technological improvements. This latest iteration serves a different purpose in the marketplace. While the Trofeo R was primarily designed as an aftermarket product to enhance track performance, the Trofeo RS takes on a new role as original equipment, allowing car manufacturers to equip their vehicles with tyres that deliver a sporty driving experience right off the factory floor.
So, what sets the P Zero Trofeo RS apart? Well, this semi-slick tyre is engineered to provide exceptional dry performance and consistent handling. Even under the most demanding conditions, it maintains high-performance levels for extended periods, allowing drivers to push the limits of speed and safety on various track surfaces. This impressive performance is a result of Pirelli’s extensive experience in top-tier motorsport, where they have honed their expertise.
The advanced materials used in the tread pattern compound make the P Zero Trofeo RS adaptable for both road use and amateur track sessions. However, Pirelli has also prioritized safety, particularly on wet asphalt. They understand that even the most powerful vehicles need to maintain optimal grip and control, regardless of the weather conditions.
To achieve these remarkable characteristics, Pirelli’s research and development department employed a range of innovative technologies. These technologies are tailored to meet the specific requirements defined by car manufacturers for their models.
One such technology is the Multi-compound Tread, which allows Pirelli to customize the tyres by matching different tread pattern compounds from their prestigious catalogue. This ensures that each vehicle benefits from the unique performance characteristics that suit its driving dynamics. For the Pagani Utopia, P Zero Trofeo RS tyres were designed to outperform the P Zero Corsa in extreme sports driving without compromising the vehicle’s balance or the driver’s experience.
This achievement was made possible by carefully selecting the compounds, especially for the rear tyres, to strike the perfect balance between track speed, safety, and comfort on the road.
In the development process, Pirelli also employed Virtual Geometry Development. This cutting-edge technique allowed their engineers to evaluate numerous profiles and footprints through virtual modelling, providing precise insights into the tyres’ response to driver inputs. This meticulous approach ensures that every aspect of the tyre’s performance is finely tuned and optimised.
The Pirelli P Zero Trofeo RS is currently available as original equipment for select vehicles, with a comprehensive range of aftermarket sizes set to follow. For those who demand the pinnacle of performance and precision, this tyre is a game-changer.
