Powered by a 6.5 Litre V12 engine generating almost 700 hp, the roadster accelerates from 0-62 mph  = 0-100 km/h in just 3 seconds and boasts a top speed of 217 mph = 350 km/h.

To give its thoroughbred a free rein, Lamborghini has asked Pirelli to specifically design a tyre, based on its Pzero range. Objective: Guarantee stability, comfort and handling under all operating conditions.

This PZero tyre has been specially designed to ensure maximum grip and quickly adapt to gear changes at all speeds, thus allowing the car to unleash its power. Based on its Formula1 experience, Pirelli engineers have concentrated their efforts on the tread design.  They have mainly worked on the tyre’s structure and compound to restrict tyre deformation.

The PZero tyres will be fitted on 20"/ 21" Dione rims in the dimension 255/30 ZR 20 at the front and 355/25 ZR 21 at the rear.
