Pirelli Selected as Exclusive Tire Supplier for Aston Martin DBX
The new Aston Martin DBX will be equipped exclusively with Pirelli tires, the company announced. Pirelli’s P Zero for the DBX has been developed in tandem with the DBX to offer the best possible performance and handling while the Scorpion Zero AS and Scorpion Winter provide options for off-road and winter driving.
This joint development work began with laboratory testing before moving on to outdoor testing in varied conditions. The wet weather capabilities of the tires for the new Aston Martin DBX were refined at Pirelli’s test track in Vizzola near Milan, while tire performance on ice and snow was honed at Pirelli’s winter test facility at Fleurheden in Sweden. Outright performance was developed at the high speed Nardo circuit in southern Italy, followed by work at the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany.
