Pirelli Colored Tyres Launched in Geneva Motor show.
Pirelliâ€™s new coloured edition tyres, which were launched at the Geneva Motor Show, have made their road-going debut with the Italian police force.
Lamborghini has donated a new Huracan to Italyâ€™s police, which like every Lamborghini is equipped with Pirelli tyres as original equipment. However, this is the first road-going example to use the new coloured edition tyres following their Geneva debut â€“ and naturally, the colour that has been chosen is a specially-created police blue to match the Lamborghiniâ€™s distinctive police livery.
This latest edition to the Italian police force fleet will be used for time-critical missions, such as transport of organs for donations. With a top speed of close to 200mph, this is probably the fastest police car currently in existence. Coloured edition Pirelli tyres are based on the famous P Zero, which are supplied to the majority of the worldâ€™s supercar manufacturers as original equipment.
Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali, who was present at the handover ceremony, commented: â€śA big thanks to Pirelli for providing special tyres that showcase the best of Italian technology.â€ť
Pirelli and Lamborghini have previously formed part of the police force, with a Gallardo being first supplied to the Italian police in 2005: again with P Zero tyres as original equipment. However, this is the first time that coloured edition tyres have been seen on a police car â€“ or indeed any other car â€“ on the road.
The Pirelli coloured edition is available in four base colours â€“ yellow, red, white and silver â€“ but the option also exists to personalise the tyres in any colour designated. Showcasing this unique capability for bespoke design is the Lamborghini that was handed directly to Italyâ€™s interior minister at a ceremony in Rome earlier in the week.
