Pirelli have revealed the Connesso P Zero and Connesso Sottozero tyres
Tyres that give feedback to an app, giving you insights and more detail from the tyre.
“Until now the tyre was the least connected part of the car, but the only part connected to the road,” Luigi Staccoli, boss of Pirelli digital explained.
A sensor 100mm in diameter and weighing 9 grams is stuck to the inner side wall of the tyre and transmits data to an app. It allows you to monitor the tyre pressure, temperature and tread depth on your phone and even request help for when you get a flat.
Pirelli are offering this only on the P Zero tyres to start but do say they expect to roll this out on to every tyre they sell
Fancy an F1 look?
You can also order your P Zeros with a coloured stripe in the side walls. Four main colours will be offered as standard but you can opt to have them customised to a colour of your choice for the right price £££
