Pirelli P-Zero Asimmetrico: The Ferrari F40
The tire was produced in 1986 for the Ferrari F40 due to the F40 having an additional 80 Bhp than the 288 GTO did, meaning that Chief Engineer Nicola Materazzi had to contact Pirelli to build a custom tire that would suit the F40 needs. The P-Zero Asimmetrico was designed featuring a carcass made with light materials like Kevlar and the asymmetrical tread pattern it is named after. These combined with the experience gained with the Lancia Rally cars and the formula 1 season of the early to mid 80's led to the specially made, perfect tire for the F40.
