The Pagani Huayra has been at the Nürburgring, testing the Pirelli PzeroTM Corsa tyres, a new tyre that was developed by Pirelli for the new Pagani. Wearing the new rubber, Pagani pitted the Huayra against a Zonda R wearing slick tyres.
Pirelli says it was trying to replicate the balance and progression that is offered by the Zonda R around the Nürburgring, as well as the high-speed ability - and after a test by company founder Horacio Pagani pleased with the results.
