ADAC, the German automobile club, first and most important in Europe for dimension, TCS, the largest motor club in Switzerland, and ÖAMTC, the most important Austrian automobile club, have just published their verdicts. Pirelli dominated the 15” test with its touring product, Cinturato P1 Verde Pirelli proved to be the BEST IN CLASS in the following tests: wet braking, longitudinal aquaplaning, stability on circular track and internal noise. Pirelli received the final evaluation of “good” (the highest mark) in ADAC and “very recommendable” in TCS and ÖAMTC, along with four other competitors. In the 16’’ test Scorpion Verde confirmed to be one of the top products on the market, ranking third out of 15 products tested.
