Bridgestone Partners with Lamborghini to Develop World-First Supercar Run-Flat All-Terrain Tire for the Huracán Sterrato
20 January 2023
Bridgestone Americas today announced it has been chosen as the sole and exclusive tire partner for the new Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato, providing all-terrain and winter fitments for the world's first all-terrain, super sports car equipped with a V10 engine and all-wheel drive powertrain.
The custom-developed Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain AT002 tires are an exclusive fit for the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato, and just like the all-terrain supercar, Bridgestone's new HRD supercar all-terrain tire delivers several unique features. The Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain AT002 is the world's first-ever supercar all-terrain tire to feature Run-Flat Technology (RFT), supporting drivers to continue driving safely even after a puncture – for up to 50 miles at 50 miles per hour with 0-bar pressure. This offers drivers unique peace of mind when out on roads of all types enjoying this all-terrain supercar.
Delivering incredible performance whatever the terrain
The bespoke Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain AT002 is designed to provide versatile top performances wherever the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato goes, irrespective of terrain. This way, the innovative tire delivers enjoyment through fun and easy driving in all conditions, matching the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato's DNA.
Developed and manufactured in Europe, the Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain AT002 includes a new tire compound designed to optimize grip, with a specific shoulder integrated for additional grip in deep gravel and mud. Meanwhile, the tread pattern on the Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain AT002 has also been optimized for the best possible handling and high-speed performance without compromise to off-road grip.
Steven De Bock, Vice President Consumer Replacement and OE at Bridgestone EMIA, commented: "With the Dueler All-Terrain AT002, Bridgestone has created a bespoke tire that perfectly complements the high-speed all-terrain concept of the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato. We've created a tire that is just as capable at high speeds on asphalt as it is when driving off-road, providing high-speed stability and off-road capability, rising to meet a completely different set of challenges on mud, gravel and demanding terrains."
These custom-designed Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain AT002 tires are available in two dimensions: 235/40 ZR19 (96Y) XL RFT for the front wheels and 285/40 ZR19 (107Y) XL RFT for the rear. The Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 will also be available as an aftersales winter option for the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato, available in 235/40 R19 96Y XL and 285/40 R19 107Y XL sizes.
Bridgestone's partnership with Lamborghini is part of the company's vision to provide customer and social value as a sustainable solutions company. At the heart of this is the Bridgestone E8 Commitment – the broad, global corporate commitment that clearly defines the value the company is promising to deliver to society, customers, and future generations in eight focus areas.
