But, the F1 fans can understand that every color associated with this speaker has a special meaning, and which makes it even more beautiful.
Think for those F1 fans who have decorated their rooms in the F1 theme. This speaker will be a wonderful addition to their room and is going to bring more life to it!
Looks like Pirelli knows how to pull a smile on their fans’ faces!
Here’s what the colors mean:-
|Color||Tyre Type||Speed||Track Type|
|Pink||Hyper-Soft||Fastest Tyre with the shortest lifespan||Dry|
|Purple||Ultra-Soft||Fast (slower than Pink)||Dry|
|Red||Super-Soft||Fast (slower than Purple)||Dry|
|Yellow||Soft||Fast (slower than Red, but has better lifespan)||Medium Dry|
|White||Medium||Slower than Yellow||Soft Dry|
|Ice Blue||Hard||Slower than White||Dry|
|Green||Intermediate||Intermediate||Mildly Wet Track (or in changing conditions)|
|Wet Blue||Wet Tyre||In rain and standing water conditions||Wet Track|
- The softer the tyre is, the faster it will be. And, a tyre loses speed as it gets harder. But, hard tyres have a better lifespan than the softer ones.
- Pirelli releases a new set of tyres every year. So, it is highly likely that the details associated with these colors might change next year. This speaker was launched in 2018. So, the colors and details mentioned in the above table refer to the set of tyres they had released in 2018.
The speaker has quite impressive specs that can keep you entertained in your F1 themed room, or, while you do the heavy job in the garage. But, also has a price tag that is even greater than a real Pirelli tyre!
Pirelli P Zero Sound costs 2,400 Euros, equivalent to about $2,800.
Also, it’s worth noting that this speaker is not available on Amazon’s global store i.e., Amazon.com. But, it is available on Amazon Italy and IXOOST‘s website. So, you can buy this beauty from any one of these 2 websites.
Although, it comes in nine different colors, but misses a real rubber racing tyre, which could have made it even more beautiful!
