Flying the flag for Pirelli: Italian tyre maker’s iconic P ZERO appears on world’s leading cars at 2017 Dubai International Motor Show

Pirelli, one of the symbols of Italian industrial excellence, has been turning heads as well as cars at the 2017 Dubai International Motor Show, with its iconic P ZERO and P ZERO Colour Edition tyres appearing on some of the world's newest and fastest models on display at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) this week.

The Pirelli P ZERO Colour Edition is a special made-to-order ultra-high performance tyre featuring a sidewall in striking colours including the brands signature yellow and red, and also in an eye-catching blue, which was unveiled earlier this year, and the P ZERO is a unique product that combines Pirelli's knowledge gained from competitive Motorsport with the brand's strong alliance with the top car manufacturers, granting the perfect fit for the performance of each car.

Pirelli tyres have been marking their mark at the Middle East's premier automotive event in Dubai this week, appearing on leading vehicles from the likes of McLaren, Porsche, Jaguar, Infiniti and more.

Carlos Milani, Managing Director Pirelli, Middle East and India, said: "Pirelli is the symbol of luxury and prestige and it great for the brand to be seen on so many world-class cars at the Dubai International Motor Show, which attracts so many automotive industry leaders and serious car buyers from around the region and beyond."

Here's a pick of the cars carrying the famous Pirelli tyres at the show:

Project Black S by Infinti
The Pirelli yellow P ZERO colour edition was seen on the super cool Project Black S by luxury Japanese car maker Infiniti, with the yellow sidewall, providing a striking contrast to the shiny silver of the cars bodywork.

McLaren 'Black and Gold' 720S
Many people's car of the show, the striking 'Black and Gold 720S' is a Dubai-inspired vehicle from supercar giant McLaren with Arabic calligraphy of "life is measured in achievement, not in years alone" - a quote by McLaren founder Bruce McLaren - on its rear spoiler. It looked even more impressive with P ZERO treads on.

The cars on display on the Italian brands were displaying loyalty to their compatriot with P ZERO boots on.

Ferrari Portofino
Enjoying its regional debut at the Dubai International Motor Show this week, the latest model from Ferrari looked resplendant in its P ZERO shoes.

Like Pirelli, Jaguar Land Rover is a brand that is synonmous with high performance, style and prestige so itwas a natural fit for several of Jaguars latest models to be seen on top of sleek P Zeros.

Italdesign Zerouno
This custom-made car by Italdesign Automobili Speciali, grabbed plenty of attention from show visitors throughout the show and looked very impressive featuring P ZEROs.
