Like the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2, the Toyo R888 or the Yokohama A048, the P Zero Trofeo R is a radical sport tyre approved for road use. Designed for drivers looking for a tyre that reacts with precision, it is highly recommended for track days.

To assess its potential in terms of grip and pure efficiency, here are 2 videos taken at the track:

  • The first video was filmed at a P Zero Experience day on the Magny-Cours race track. Behind the wheel of an Audi TTS (310 hp), the driver Anthony Beltoise compared the P Zero with the Trofeo R.

    • The second video filmed at Portimao, the Portugese race track stars the famous British journalist, Chris Harris. Behind the wheel of a Megane RS Trophy-R (275 hp) and a Porsche 911 type 991 GT3 (475 hp), he put in some timed laps to compare the Trofeo R with tyres fitted to these sports cars as original equipment
