Cooper Tire Europe has developed a limited-edition version of the Cooper Zeon CS8. To celebrate the championship’s only UK round, Cooper’s bespoke World RX-themed tire has been designed specifically for release at Silverstone.
The Cooper Zeon CS8 promises drivers exceptional ‘A’ grade wet grip, fuel efficiency and excellent handling characteristics. Featuring the official World RX logo on the sidewall, the CS8 will allow a top speed of 300km/h. Five hundred of the 215/40R17 XL 87Y high-performance passenger car tires will be made in a one-off production run.
“Our limited edition Cooper Zeon CS8 tire is for the World Rallycross fans, many of whom travel all across Europe and beyond year-on-year to watch what is a truly thrilling sport,” said Sarah McRoberts, PR and events manager for Cooper Tire Europe. “They will now have the opportunity to further show their passion for RX by fitting a World RX-branded tire to their car.”
