Bridgestone Partners with Lamborghini to Develop World-First Supercar Run-Flat All-Terrain Tyre for the Huracán Sterrato
Bridgestone has been chosen as the sole and exclusive tyre 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.
Specifically designed for the unique engineering requirements of the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato, the new Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tyre offers drivers maximum on-road and off-road performances. The tyre’s bespoke polymers, patterns, and tyre technologies have been developed to enhance the all-terrain capabilities of the Huracán Sterrato and maximize the thrill and fun of driving on and off the asphalt behind the wheel of this supercar.
The custom-developed Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tyres are an exclusive fit for the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato, and just like the all-terrain supercar, Bridgestone’s new HRD supercar all-terrain tyre delivers several unique features. The Bridgestone Dueler AT002 is the world’s first-ever supercar all-terrain tyre to feature Run-Flat Technology (RFT), supporting drivers to continue driving safely even after a puncture – for 80km at 80kph 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 AT002 is designed to provide versatile top performances wherever the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato goes, irrespective of terrain. This way, the innovative tyre 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 AT002 includes a new tyre compound designed to optimise grip, with a specific shoulder integrated for additional grip in deep gravel and mud. Meanwhile, the tread pattern on the Bridgestone Dueler AT002 has also been optimised 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 AT002, Bridgestone has created a bespoke tyre that perfectly complements the high-speed all-terrain concept of the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato. We’ve created a tyre 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 AT002 tyres 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.
