The Bridgestone Potenza Sport has secured a joint victory in the 2023 Auto Zeitung summer tyre test, outclassing its competitors with superior wet handling, braking, and overall driving safety ratings.
Tested against a range of tyres, the Potenza Sport emerged a clear winner thanks to its exceptional performance in crucial disciplines. The 19-inch ultra-high performance (UHP) summer tyre amazed test track experts with its "flawless driving characteristics" and "extremely high grip" when tested under dry conditions.
This victory is a testament to Bridgestone's years of racing experience, innovative tyre development, and successful collaborations with prestigious car manufacturers. It reaffirms that the Potenza Sport has been meticulously tailored to cater to the requirements of discerning drivers, offering unrivalled control and confidence.
Steven De Bock, Vice President of Consumer Replacement and OE at Bridgestone EMIA, expressed satisfaction with their product's recognition. "We are very pleased with the verdict of the renowned test experts at Auto Zeitung. To be honoured as test winner once again proves the high-quality standards with which we develop our state-of-the-art portfolio," he said. He further noted that offering top products like the Potenza Sport allows their retail partners to provide their customers with the best products on the market.
In addition to the remarkable result in Auto Zeitung, the Potenza Sport's exceptional quality was acknowledged in Auto Bild sportscars' 2023 summer sports tyre test. In this evaluation, Bridgestone's UHP tyre impressed with top performance in wet and dry conditions and circular drives on wet roads. The "exemplary" rating it received was a testament to its balance, precise steering behaviour, and significant safety margins in aquaplaning, as confirmed by the test experts.
