Making its debut on American soil at Michelin North America's booth at the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show is the Caparo T1 supercar from the British firm Caparo Vehicle Technologies Inc.

That vehicle is just one of the many exclusive supercars shod with Michelin tires on display at the show, the tire manufacturer says.

In addition to the the Caparo T1, the supercar line-up in the Michelin booth includes the Buggati Veyron, Pagani Zonda Roadster F, RUF Rt12, Saleen S7, Koenigsegg CCX, Fisker Latigo CS and McLaren F1 LM.

“Michelin pushes the envelope for supercar performance through our research and development efforts allowing us to be a leader in creating new tire technology,” says Parmeet Grover, brand director for Michelin. “These supercars provide us a unique platform, in addition to our success in motorsports, to ensure that drivers enjoy uncompromising safety and performance for both city and highway driving with ultimate confidence.”

Many of the supercars ride on Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires, which were inspired by Michelin’s success in Formula One, 24 Hours of Le Mans and the American Le Mans Series, the tire manufacturer notes.
