NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Bridgestone has been selected as the exclusive tire supplier for the new Lamborghini Huracan STO, the luxury Italian manufacturer's road-homologated super sports car.
In addition to custom-designed Potenza Sport tires, the Lamborghini Huracan STO also can be fitted with custom Bridgestone Potenza Race semi-slick tires. These tailor-made Potenza Race tires offer excellent dry grip for outstanding lap times and reliable cornering, braking and handling on and off the track, the company claims.
Bridgestone said the Potenza Race tires "have been designed to enhance the incredible capabilities of the Lamborghini Huracan STO and let drivers experience true high-performance."
Building on Bridgestone's long heritage in Formula One racing and high-performance vehicles, the premium Potenza Race semi-slick tire has been customized for the first time for the Lamborghini Huracan STO. As such, the tire's tread is lined with the colors of Italy's il Tricolore—a nod to the fact that both the tire and vehicle have been designed in Italy—and features Lamborghini's distinctive markings.
The Potenza Race tire promises excellent dry grip, thanks to an optimized tread compound, pattern and sporty tire profile, which increases grip and handling in dry conditions, the company said.
