To celebrate the launch of the Davanti Protoura Sport tyre, we brought together three cars and put them all on the new ultra-high performance tyre and sent them out on track at Silverstone. Here’s what we found out.
What is the Davanti Protoura Sport tyre?
Davanti’s most advanced car tyre has been born out of decades of engineering expertise, thousands of miles of testing and the most cutting-edge tread design and compound formulation, the Davanti Protoura Sport is built for the love of driving.
“With Protoura Sport, we’ve created a tyre with many new and innovative features,” said Davanti Tyres general manager Peter Cross. “This tyre sets a new bar for responsiveness, handling and performance. It’s at one with the driver.”
The Davanti Protoura Sport is the first tyre allocated significant development time at Davanti’s new European Development Centre at IDIADA. It has also been submitted to both Dekra and TÜV Süd, outperforming leading brand rivals in a series of scientific performance tests.
Designed for the premium vehicle market, Protoura Sport’s performance and styling place it among the established UHP class-leaders. “If you love driving, Protoura Sport gives you everything you want from a tyre,” said Ray Collier, Managing Director or independent automotive test organisation TREAD who conducted extensive developmental testing of Protoura Sport. “In testing this tyre we set a high benchmark. The testing targets were very ambitious, with thresholds set to the same levels expected in OE testing – but Protoura Sport met every challenge. It is a hugely impressive tyre and one any brand would want as its flagship product.”
Built with an enriched rubber compound to offer exceptional grip at high speeds, Protoura Sport has a number of key design features which ensure every drop of control, stability and braking performance is delivered where it is needed instantly.
“Protoura Sport is the most advanced tyre that we have ever produced,” said Peter Cross. “We set out to create a truly elite UHP tyre and, having subjected it to intensive development at our European Development Centre and then validating and further benchmarking our findings with independent agencies such as TÜV Süd and Dekra, Protoura Sport has excelled throughout.
