Sensor-Equipped Tyres for Audi RS 4 Avant Edition 25 Years

Pirelli P Zero Trofeo Track Adrenaline App

The Audi RS 4 has been equipped with Pirelli tyres as standard equipment since the first model was launched 25 years ago, so it seems only fitting that the latest special limited edition model also comes fitted with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres as original equipment as well as a specific track kit that consists of Pirelli P Zero Trofeo RS tyres equipped with Cyber technology and combined with Pirelli’s Track Adrenaline system, both in 275/30R20 size.

The Track Adrenaline system acts as a ‘virtual engineer’ for optimal tyre management during track days, made up of tyres with sensors connected to an app that is available on both Apple Car Play and Android Auto.

The P Zero Corsa is a high-performance tyre suitable for sports driving which has been designed on the technologies developed by Pirelli for racing, making it the the ideal tyre for driving the Audi RS 4 Avant edition 25 years on the road given its high levels of traction, comfort and safety in both dry and wet conditions.

The new P Zero Trofeo RS tyres provides stability, stress resistance, grip and consistency on track and are custom-made for the Audi RS 4 Avant edition 25 years, equipped with Pirelli Cyber sensors that detect tyre status and driving conditions, transmitting them directly to the driver through an app which together with a high-precision GPS module make up the Track Adrenaline system and a ‘virtual engineer’ during track sessions.

Using the digital manometer, you are able to select the desired set-up before heading onto the circuit. While out on the track the information is recorded by sensors as well as telemetry detected by the control unit and data from the GPS module, which is then used to record lap times and the ideal racing line. Once your session is over, you can analyse the recorded data via the app so as to try and improve your driving line and technique.

If you happen to have a passenger with you in the car, you can activate the ‘live view’ function, which, much like the team radio in Formula 1, gives immediate and brief messages to help the driver, suggesting, for example, that you warm up the tyres or come into the pits.

This new and unique package of tyres and the Track Adrenaline kit for the Audi RS 4 Avant edition 25 years, mark a new chapter in the collaboration between Pirelli and Audi for the RS range.

The very first Audi RS 4 launched 25 years ago, which was originally equipped with tyres from the P Zero family, is among the many models that have benefitted from this joint development work between the two companies. Then there is of course the RS 4 competition, for which Pirelli is the exclusive original equipment supplier, and the RS Q8 and RS 3, both of which set Nürburgring track records in 2019 and 2021 respectively. Today, the Pirelli tyre range for Audi RS takes in 36 homologations, including summer, winter and track-specific tyres.
