Pirelli produces bespoke P Zero tyre for new Hyundai i30 N

Pirelli has engineered a tailor-made version of its P Zero tyre for the new Hyundai i30 N in size 235/35 R19. The new OE-tyre is produced at Pirelli’s Settimo Torinese, Italy factory. To identify the P Zero specially made for the i30 N, the sidewall includes an `HN` mark.

The i30 N is Hyundai Motor’s first high-performance car under the N line up. Built on the New Generation i30, the i30 N has been developed from the ground up to deliver maximum driving pleasure in everyday life on the road, as well as on the track.

The i30 N is Hyundai Motor’s answer to emerging customer preferences towards uncompromising innovation and technology-driven performance. Due to be launched across Europe by the end of 2017, the All-New i30 N is made for people to experience the sporty dynamic when driving a performance car.

Billed as “an everyday sports car”, the i30 N is suitable for daily commuting in comfort on weekdays or for race track performance on the weekend. It features a powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged engine that delivers up to 275 PS and 353 Nm torque (378 Nm with Overboost function).
