Infiniti and Pirelli Partner on ‘Project Black S”
Premium car manufacturer Infiniti and Official Formula One tire supplier Pirelli have announced they will collaborate on Infiniti’s ‘Project Black S’.
The new partnership was announced at the Canadian GP by Tommaso Volpe, Director, Infiniti Global Motorsport, & Paul Hembery, Motorsport Director, Pirelli.
Unveiled in March 2017, ‘Project Black S’ explores the potential of a future performance grade for Infiniti. Pirelli’s contribution will include the design and construction of bespoke tires developed exclusively for ‘Project Black S’.
The ground-breaking project hints at how a performance hybrid powertrain – developed in close collaboration with Renault Sport Formula One Team – could significantly enhance the performance and dynamics of an Infiniti Q60.
Pirelli was attracted to the Project Black S as a true track-to-road technology transfer project. Thanks to motorsport and Formula One, Pirelli embarks on a new and challenging collaboration to develop dedicated tires for a car that features outstanding performance coupled with extreme aerodynamics. Through this partnership, Pirelli’s renowned sporting DNA is demonstrated once more, which is chosen to guarantee the best compromise between performance and safety.
