Official supplier to the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC), since 2006, Yokohama has built on this experience to produce its new UHP (ultra high performance) tyre. The Nurburgring circuit, home to Germany’s leading car manufacturers, has been central to this tyre’s development. A convinced Mercedes-Benz has selected the Advan V105 as original equipment for its SL, SLK, CLS and C Class models.
Advan V105 is:
