In a recent series of summer tire tests performed by a number of German motoring publications, Pirelli & Cie SpA received high marks for its entries.

The Pirelli P Zero Nero was singled out by four of the magazines. The ultra-high performance tire was fitted on the BMW Z4, Mercedes-Benz C 320 Sport Coupe, Audi A3 and Audi TT. Also tested was the P Zero Rosso, which was fitted on the Mercedes-Benz CLS 350.
