The Original Equipment (OE) fitment on the brand-new Mercedes-Benz S-Class was finalised last month with 19” versions of Bridgestone’s legendary Potenza S001.
Designed and tested in some of the most challenging arenas in motorsport, the Potenza S001 builds on Bridgestone’s proud history of racing. Offering untold levels of precision and control, even at high speeds, the Potenza S001 is a perfect match for the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the youngest addition to the Mercedes-Benz range.
Launched in July 2013, the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class fitted with Bridgestone tyres will be manufactured in Germany and subsequently sold around Europe and the rest of the world.
