Michelin has launched the new Pilot Sport 3 to replace part of its Pilot Exalto and Pilot Sport 2 ranges, the latter being the tire of choice for the Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 supercar and recently revealed Cadillac CTS-V Coupe.
According to Michelin’s own test results, the new Pilot Sport 3 tires holds the road better than its predecessor when cornering and stops up to 10 feet shorter.
The new Michelin Pilot Sport 3 tires are also some of the most flexible in the industry, capable of fitting sporty hatchbacks and large, powerful saloons as well as sports cars. Some of the cars it will be appearing on include the Audi A5 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG.
In addition to this broad range of applications, the Michelin Pilot Sport 3 is designed to be a truly global tire. It will be available in South America, Europe, Africa, the Pacific and Asia later this year and should be on sale in the U.S. be early 2011.
