Lamborghini has chosen Bridgestone as the tyre supplier for the Huracan supersports car set to be released in 2021.

Bridgestone developed a tailor made Potenza tyre capable of maximising the car's traction, handling, control, and extreme overall performance. 

The combination of pattern and cavity design maximises performance. The tyres have an asymmetric tread design for enhanced steering response and cornering stability, and an internal crown structure which distributes footprint pressure evenly when cornering. These features are combined with a newly developed tread compound that enhances grip. 

Collaboration with Lamborghini and its virtual development technology enabled Bridgestone to carry out its tyre development process to achieve maximum results despite limitations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The tyre manufacturer tested several combinations in its virtual environment and integrated tyre behaviour in the vehicle's system to find the perfect match in a virtual driving simulator.

Bridgestone will also supply a track oriented, road homologated version of the tyre that applies race technology to maximise the vehicle's track performance, especially in dry conditions.
