The Pirelli brand is known as an icon of technology and excellence. It is a name that stands for a premium, high-end style with an Italian heritage all underlined by the company’s dominant position as a supplier to luxury car manufacturers. The fame of the Pirelli name and brand also stems from its involvement in multiple activities beyond tyre manufacturing.
