Pirelli P-Zero tyres especially for the Alfa Romeo 4C
The 4C is Alfa Romeo’s new ultra-light model. To live up to claims, the 4C needed tyres that Pirelli was willing to supply, on an exclusive basis.

On paper, the Alfa Romeo 4C is an extremely attractive sports car. Its state of the art chassis can count on a carbon fibre monocoque, just like a real super car. One of the lightest cars in the world, it has a dry weight of just 895 kg which makes it a real bomb, even though its power output is not particularly high: Its small four cylinder engine “only” produces 240 hp. With its extreme design philosophy, this car needed high performance tyres in line with its character. Therefore, the Italian car manufacturer worked hand in hand with Pirelli to develop its tyres. For the 4C, the tyre manufacturer concocted a special P-Zero, tailored to match the cars’ technical characteristics.
Developed to suit a sports car that produces low levels of downforce but requires maximum grip, the P-Zero AR is fitted with 18 inch rims at the rear and 17 inch rims at the front. Note that the Alfa Romeo 4C can also be equipped with P-Zero Trofeo 19 inch rims at the rear and 18 inch rims at the front, in a more radical version.
