The Pirelli Cinturato ™ was invented in the 1950s. Juan Manuel Fangio called the Pirelli Cinturato ™ 'Extraordinary'. The 5 Times Formula 1 world champion was impressed by its absolute driving precision: which was unthinkable in those days where cross-ply tyres were commonplace. More rigid than cross-ply tyres, the Cinturato was the first tyre with a radial structure which wrapped around the carcass like a belt (Cintura in Italian). The result was a markedly sporting product, which was to make history. By the end of 1968 Pirelli was exporting, or directly manufacturing, the Cinturato in as many as 137 countries worldwide.

The Pirelli Cinturato ™ had excellent grip and speed capabilities. It's no surprise that Pirelli Cinturato ™ was original equipment on lots of the great Italian cars of the 50's, 60's and 70's, including Lamborghini, Lancia, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, and Maserati and Internationally with manufacturers like MGB, Rover and Lotus.

Classic Pirelli Cinturato ™

Importantly for today's Classic car user, the Pirelli Cinturato ™ is a genuine period classic tyre. As well as being original fitment on MGB, Ferrari 250GT and Alfa Duetto, they are also a period radial tyre for cars such as 50's and 60's Jaguars, Rolls Royce Silver Shadow 1 and all the DB Aston Martins. These cars left the factory fitted with cross ply tyres and in many cases benefit from a period radial tyre on today's modern roads. Today we tend to find ourselves cruising on dual carriage ways at over 50 mph (80kph) and crossply tyres tend to wander. Fitting a Pirelli Cinturato ™ will dramatically diminish the wandering without making the steering much heavier as a more modern radial tyre would. As well as looking fantastic the Pirelli Cinturato ™ will make your classic car handle superbly.
