If you buy an exclusive limited edition Ferrari 599 GTO, the famed marque’s fastest road car ever, it comes wearing a pair of pretty special tires – the new Michelin Pilot Super Sport.

After all, you wouldn’t expect a supermodel to show up in a ratty old pair of sneakers.

Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires – what the well-dressed supercar is wearing

Adapted from the rubber used in world-class endurance races like the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Pilot Super Sport is designed to deliver durability, handling and performance in spades.

Road tests have shown it can even help shave precious seconds off your lap times.

You don’t have to own a Ferrari to buy a set – but you may feel like you’re driving one all the same.
