The French manufacturer of tyres Michelin and the firm american Ford vehicles, have signed an agreement to provide equipment for all models FORD Performance (that is to say, the Ford Mustang, Ford GT, Fiesta ST, Focus ST and Focus RS), this latter, known in recent days for his adventures with the team of Jalopnik and the Civil Guard, is the protagonist of the news.
Have been two years of development of the sports version of the compact, but also two years of work of the technicians of Michelin facing a set of tires that meet all the conditions that a car with 350 HP of power you need.
So after a great deal of work and in the dimensions 235/35 R19, MICHELIN Pilot Sport will be the standard tires that will fit the Focus RS exclusive. But this is not all.
MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2, the specific circuit
Another of the novelties of the French manufacturer has been the specific development of a set of wheels alternative and designed to improve the features in-circuit of the model that I talked about. These are the MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2.
With testing on the Nürburgring (Germany), Lommel (Belgium), Charade (France), Dearborn (Usa) and applus + idiada (Spain) for the best tune possible, more than 2,000 km of track in track, 100 prototypes manufactured for the tune, and 500 tires produced in pre-to roll.
This prestacional and “circuitero” can be purchased as optional equipment with the vehicle and count it insured that will be war in the batches.
