Michelin tyres and supercars: a long-term partnership

We've compiled a gallery of some of the fastest and most exotic supercars to ever wear high-performance Michelin rubber

As the only contact patch with the road, tyres are amongst the most important parts of a car. Poor quality rubber can lead to detrimental affects to handling, performance and safety. This matter becomes even more sensitive with supercars, when speeds are greater and margins for error slimmer. Travelling at high speed requires confidence in the rubber underneath you, so choosing the right tyres is essential.

That's why Michelin, one of the world's most respected tyre makers, is often asked to provide tyres to supercar makers across the globe. With over 100 years of experience under its belt, Michelin has made tyres for some of the fastest and most exotic supercars to ever grace our roads.

Organised in no particular order, this gallery takes a look at just some of these special machines, and includes vehicles ranging from 273mph hypercars to iconic classics that were equally groundbreaking in their day. Every single one is a legend in its own right, and each one left the factory wearing Michelin rubber.
