"For Marangoni, Zeta Linea is the direct result of the tests carried out with standard tyres on race cars. In fact, Zeta Linea is expressly designed to meet European tuning requirements, thanks also to Marangoni's close cooperation with Franz Engstler, one of the most famous German tuners.
To obtain top performance, Zeta Linea utilises the PST profile, the perfect way to guarantee reliability and precision at high speeds, special compounds with an FOM-IC base, and a series of technical innovations involving the bead, the tread design and a shifted double nylon belt.
The end result is a tyre that responds quickly to the most stressful conditions and with extraordinary progressive handling, without reducing operating silence or comfort.
In brief, the ideal tyre for the sportiest prestige car models.
With special attention, naturally, for the entire broad area of converting and tuning."
Marangoni and Franz Engstler: performance born on the track
"In 2001, Marangoni began working at the highest technical levels with the team of Franz Engstler, one of Europe’s most famous tuners. The purpose? To test standard tyres under the most demanding conditions in order to obtain the information necessary to improve Marangoni's expertise in UHP tyres.
In 2001, Marangoni tyres were tested on the German touring championship's most demanding racetracks.
There's no doubt that a track puts a tyre under much more stress than any normal road could ever do. Race drivers tend to use brakes and kerbs like they’re going out of style, really torturing the tyres to the max.
With this in mind, the most selective test ground is called Nürburgring. It’s here on this famous track that Marangoni Zeta Linea ran scores of laps mounted on the Engstler ER6 and ER10 and passed the test with flying colours.
Marangoni intends to continue and to intensify its close cooperation with Engstler in the future with very specific objectives regarding mass production. Don't forget that this sporting tour de force will lead to guaranteed performance and safety in the tyres we use every day.

Press Release 2003
"Engstler chooses the Marangoni Zeta Linea for its Stilos and 147s
The famous German tuner has chosen Marangoni technology for its custom versions of the Fiat Stilo and Alfa Romeo 147.
The fact that a German tuner has preferred Italian cars to German ones is already great news. This decision becomes even more interesting if we add that, for the tyres, it has decided to choose Marangoni technology, using the latest high-performance Zeta Linea.
The Fiat Stilo 1.9 JTD and the Alfa Romeo 147 1.6 TS 16V, in the “Imola Special Edition” version converted by Engstler, stand out for both their design and their contents, as well as for the extreme attention paid to the use of Italian components."
