Bridgestone Partners with Lamborghini on Supercar Run-Flat

Bridgestone says the Dueler All-Terrain AT002 is the first supercar all-terrain tire featuring run-flat technology.

Bridgestone Americas has been chosen as the sole and exclusive tire partner for the new Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato, providing all-terrain and winter fitments for the all-terrain, super sports car equipped with a V10 engine and all-wheel drive powertrain.

The custom-engineered Bridgestone Dueler AT002 supercar all-terrain tire comes with Run-Flat Technology, which the tiremaker says is a “world-first” that keeps drivers going safely even after a puncture. The tire’s bespoke polymers, patterns and tire technologies have been developed to enhance the all-terrain capabilities of the Huracán Sterrato, Bridgestone says.

Developed and manufactured in Europe, the Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain AT002 includes a new tire compound designed to optimize grip, with a specific shoulder integrated for additional grip in deep gravel and mud. Meanwhile, the tread pattern on the Bridgestone Dueler All-Terrain AT002 has also been optimized 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, commented, “With the Dueler All-Terrain AT002, Bridgestone has created a bespoke tire that perfectly complements the high-speed all-terrain concept of the Lamborghini Huracán Sterrato. We’ve created a tire 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.”
