KUMHO SHOWCASES ITS MOTORSPORT-INSPIRED UHP TYRE TECHNOLOGY AT TOKYO AUTO SALON 2016
- The focus of the company’s stand comprised two of its latest UHP offerings – the Ecsta PS91 and Ecsta V720
- The environmentally-friendly Sense SE11 was also in evidence
Lutterworth, UK – January 27, 2016. Kumho enjoyed a strong presence at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2016 (January 15-17), one of the world’s foremost exhibitions for modified and tuned cars. Visitors were able to judge for themselves the motorsport-derived technology of the company’s latest UHP products. In pole position on the stand were the Kumho Ecsta PS91, a product aimed squarely at the high-performance sports and supercar market, and the semi-slick Ecsta V720 on which the exciting new Dodge Viper ACR is now rolling off the production line. Kumho’s presence at such premier shows for modified and tuned cars serves to emphasise its longstanding expertise in the UHP tyre segment.
A further highlight of the Korean manufacturer’s display of quality products was the new-to-Japan Sense SE11, an environmentally-friendly fuel-efficient product for passenger cars.
This was the eighth consecutive year that Kumho, the exclusive supplier of tyres to the Zandvoort Masters of F3 meeting for no less than 14 years, has participated at the Tokyo Auto Salon. The company’s next such pitstop will be at Reifen, Essen, May 24-27 – the world’s largest tyre fair bar none.
