Pirelli Cinturato

  • Cinturato means belted. The Pirelli Cinturato CA67 belted radial tyres for classic sports cars were first developed in 1952 and took over as standard fitment for the supercars of the period throughout the 1950s and 1960s.
  • Cinturato CA67 (or Cintura) was fitted to the world's best sports cars, such as Ferrari Tyres, Maserati, Lancia, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, and Lotus.
  • Pirelli’s Cinturato CA67 is still made to the highest standards in a wide range of important classic car sizes.

Cintura Tyres

When Pirelli first developed the Cinturato CA67 radial tyres back in the early '50s, they were initially called Cintura. When looking at period advertisements, you will see Pirelli adverts for their Cintura range of tyres, which soon morphed into the Cinturato CA67 that is being produced today.
