Independent Tyre Test - The Results
In the world of modern tyres it is common place to come across a tyre test. However in the world of classic tyres the investment never seems to be there to do a proper modern tyre test. However a German magazine in July 2016 conducted this modern tyre test using classic tyres. This classic tyre test has been translated from German to English. What is remarkable in this tyre test is quite how well the PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 classic tyre performed in the table at the end. The scores in this table are not scored in relationship to the other tyres in the test, so when a score of 1 is recorded, then that is a perfect score for a classic tyre or a modern tyre. It is wonderful to see that these classic PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 tyres can give such exemplary results.
History of the Talbot Sunbeam
Built between 1980-1981, the Talbot Sunbeam was a face-lifted version of the Chrysler Sunbeam that had been made from 1977. Following the success of the Chrysler Sunbeam Lotus in rallying, a rebranded road version was released to much acclaim known as the Talbot Sunbeam Lotus that would go on to see much success too in the rallying world.
