A new addition to Pirelli’s family of Urus-compatible tires, the 22-in. P Zero Trofeo R is specifically intended for the track but also approved for the road, Pirelli says. This marks the first time Pirelli has adapted a P Zero Trofeo R for the needs of an SUV.
Pirelli says Simone Faggioli, a Pirelli test driver with multiple Hill Climb accolades, was behind the wheel of the Performante and recorded a time of 10 minutes and 32 seconds for the course, beating the previous class record of 10 minutes and 49.9 seconds set in 2018.
