There are only 39 Ferrari 250 GTOs in existence, but that hasn’t stopped Pirelli from developing a new tire for the world’s most expensive car.
Dubbed the Stelvio Corsa, the tire looks remarkably similar to the original tire which the 250 GTO was sold with. However, the new rubber uses modern technology for improved grip and better wear and is offered exclusively for the 250 GTO.
Auto Classics reports that Pirelli engineers used the same parameters that were used back in the 1960’s to complement the suspension and mechanical characteristics of the car. What’s more, archive images were also used and each set of Stelvio Corsa tires uses bespoke production techniques.
The tire is offered exclusively in 215/70 R15 98W for the front wheels and 225/70 R15 100W at the rear, and is the latest addition to the Pirelli Collezione tire range which includes rubber for historic models from Maserati, Porsche, and others.
Considering that well-kept 250 GTOs can sell for over $50 million, it’s probably worth ensuring each and every one has a brand-new set of tires.
