MICHELIN invited Motoraty in South Africa (SA) to analyze and test these tires.
MICHELIN has updated their Pilot Sport Tires range with the addition of the new MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup2 R and MICHELIN Pilot Sport4 SUV. MICHELIN invited Motoraty in South Africa (SA) to analyze and test these tires. Our CEO, Mr. Johny Giacaman accepted the offer and flew to the MICHELIN factory in SA. The video above gives you our first-hand experience with these tires. Mr. Johny has also reviewed each tire and test drove an SUV sporting Piolot Sport4 to understand the true capabilities of this tire. He also visited the MICHELIN factory to see the manufacturing processes of these durable tires.
Available for Africa and the Middle East, these tires are created in partnership with competitive sports car developers to offer the best performance in the extreme driving conditions without compromising on safety and longevity.
The Pilot Sport Tires range is already being used by more than 200 performance cars around the world and has achieved many circuit records (Porsche GT2 RS and GT3 RS, fitted with MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup2 R tires, has set 3 records on the famous Nordschleife of the Nürburgring in the last 2 years). The new tires are designed for SUVs, trucks and sports cars and offer drivers optimum driving pleasure in the safest way possible.
Marc Pasquet, President, Africa, India, and Middle East region, Michelin, stated: “In the region, we are again raising the bar for performance tires with the introduction of the new tires from the MICHELIN Pilot Sport family. This new range of tires is meant for the auto enthusiast, who wants optimum driving pleasure, without compromising on performance, safety, and longevity. We are delighted that the range is made available in the region immediately after its launch in Geneva Motor Show this year, signifying the importance that Michelin Group attaches to the region.”
MICHELIN has replaced the Latitude Sport 3 with the new MICHELIN Pilot Sport4 SUV. The new tire works great for SUVs and all types of 4X4 vehicles giving them the control and stability at high-speed maneuvers. The manufacturer has used its entire experience in motorsports to create the safest and high-performance tires.
The MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup2 R is specifically designed for motorists to achieve ultimate performance on the track. The manufacturer took help from the performance car makers like Porsche and Ferrari to offer supreme grip on dry circuits. The tire delivers excellent grip around corners. MICHELIN analyzed and found this tire offers 0.5 sec/km better time on a circuit.
The new MICHELIN Pilot Sport Tires are accessible at Michelin authorized dealership across the region.
