Pirelli and the BMW Group continue their long-standing cooperation with the most recent project being the custom-made variation of Pirelli’s ultra-high performance P Zero tyre for the new BMW M8.

This individual version of the P Zero was the result of the close cooperation between the development and testing departments of Pirelli and the BMW Group over several years. Applying Pirelli’s Perfect Fit philosophy, a version of the P Zero tailored to the driving characteristics of the BMW M8 was developed. It is precisely tuned to the chassis and characteristics of the M8 variants, which the BMW Group offers as a coupé and a cabriolet. 

Compared to the original P Zero, the variant delivers better performance in terms of lap time, dry handling, wet handling, consistency, braking performance, straight hydroplaning, lateral hydroplaning, weight, comfort, noise and mileage.
