Pirelli & Cie SpA has introduced a new ultra-high performance tire for the global market, P Zero the Hero. The tire is specifically designed for high-powered "supercars," say Pirelli officials.

"P Zero the Hero represents the most technologically advanced product to come out of Pirelli's research."

Pirelli reports the tire is already being fitted to the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, the Lamborghini Murciélago and Gallardo, the Audi R8 and S8, the Aston Martin DB9, the Maserati Quattroporte, and other sports cars.

"The new P Zero boasts special nano-composites in the compounds of the tread and the bead that guarantee a comfortable ride together with sports performance."
