Between September 15 and 23, the Pirelli F1 replica car, shipped in from Shanghai, will be displayed at various public locations around Singapore from the city centre to the heartlands.


An exact built-to-scale model of the Ferrari F10 2010 F1 car, the Pirelli F1 replica car will be displayed at the following locations:

The highlight of the ‘roadshow’ will take place on September 22, where Pirelli is partnering Porsche Club Singapore and Leica Singapore to organise a drive around Singapore. At least 40 Porsche cars and owners will participate in the event that will culminate at Goodwood Park Hotel, where the Pirelli F1 replica car will be displayed.

Brendan Ang, Sales Director of Pirelli Tyre Singapore, says: “As the official F1 tyre supplier, Pirelli is delighted to bring in our F1 replica car to Singapore leading up to the night race this month.
