In addition, SpeedLine will also feature motorsports merchandises.
Managing Director of Michelin Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Brunei, Mr. Pascal Nouvellon said, “Over the years, the trend for super sports cars and ultra-high-performance tuning in Malaysia has continued to rise, and we have seen an increase in demand for high performance tyres amongst consumers. The partnership with SpeedLine will allow us to provide our UHP products to this specific group of car enthusiasts who require tyres made for sport performance.”
