Michelin Pilot Super Sport: rezulteo was in Dubai to test Michelin's new hypersports tyre

New tyres Published the 01/12/2010

For the worldwide launch of its new ultra high-performance tyre, Michelin was not doing things by halves. Journalists and automobile bloggers were invited to discover the new Pilot Super Sport on the Dubai race trace at the wheel of some exceptional cars… We were there and saw for ourselves the sporting qualities of this tyre derived from motor racing.

So what is the tyre presented by Michelin as "the fastest tyre on the market" really like? To answer this question, the best thing to do is test it. This is exactly what we did last weekend, invited by the manufacturer, on the tracks of the Dubai autodrome (United Arab Emirates).

The fruit of Michelin's endurance experience – especially at the Le Mans 24-Hour Grand Prix – the Pilot Super Sport is aiming for the exceptional sports notch: Porsche, Ferrari, BMW M… It is designed to withstand speeds of over… 400 kph!

Back from Dubai, we will be doing a series of articles on this event:

>  Product data sheet: a full description of the Pilot Super Sport with the presentation of the results of the comparative test conducted by TÜV-SÜD, an independent test body.
