Bridgestone and Lamborghini developing ‘world-first’ supercar All-Terrain Tyre for the Huracán Sterrato

All-terrain super sports car tyre can survive and drive after a puncture for 80km at 80kph, even with 0-bar pressure

Bridgestone has been selected as the sole and exclusive tyre partner for the new Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato, the world’s first all-terrain super sports car equipped with a V10 engine and all-wheel drive powertrain.

Under the terms of the deal, Bridgestone is providing All-Terrain and Winter fitments for the Lamborghini

Specifically designed for the unique engineering requirements, the new Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tyre offers drivers maximum on-road and off-road performances.

The tyre’s bespoke polymers, patterns, and tyre technologies have been developed to enhance the all-terrain capabilities of the Huracán Sterrato and “maximise the thrill and fun of driving on and off the asphalt behind the wheel of this supercar,” says Bridgestone.

The custom-developed Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tyres will be an exclusive fit for the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato, and is the world’s first-ever supercar all-terrain tyre to feature Run-Flat Technology (RFT).

According to Bridgestone, the tyre is able to remain in use in the event of puncture for 80km at 80kph, even with 0-bar pressure.

This offers drivers unique peace of mind when out on roads of all types enjoying this all-terrain supercar, added the manufacturer.

The bespoke Bridgestone Dueler AT002 is designed to provide versatile top performances wherever the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato goes, irrespective of terrain, it added: “This way, the innovative tyre delivers enjoyment through fun and easy driving in all conditions, matching the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato’s DNA.Developed and manufactured in Europe, the Bridgestone Dueler AT002 includes a new tyre compound designed to optimise grip, with a specific shoulder integrated for additional grip in deep gravel and mud. Meanwhile, the tread pattern on the Bridgestone Dueler AT002 has also been optimised for the best possible handling and high-speed performance without compromise to off-road grip.”

Steven De Bock, Vice President Consumer Replacement and OE at Bridgestone EMIA, believes Bridgestone has created a bespoke tyre that perfectly complements the high-speed all-terrain concept of the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato.

“We’ve created a tyre that is just as capable at high speeds on asphalt as it is when driving off-road, providing high-speed stability and off-road capability, rising to meet a completely different set of challenges on mud, gravel, and demanding terrains,” said De Bock.

These custom-designed Bridgestone Dueler AT002 tyres are available in two dimensions: 235/40 ZR19 (96Y) XL RFT for the front wheels, and 285/40 ZR19 (107Y) XL RFT for the rear. The Bridgestone Blizzak LM005 will also be available as an aftersales winter option for the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato, available in 235/40 R19 96Y XL and 285/40 R19 107Y XL sizes.
