Brembo Dominates list of the World's Best Braking Cars - News

Of the 25 top-of-the-range cars that boast the shortest stopping distances when decelerating from 100 km/h to standstill, no less than 21 are equipped with Brembo brake systems. Confirmation in print comes from the prestigious German magazine Auto Motor and Sport, which ran a comparative test on the braking performance of certain models of Ferrari, BMW, Maserati, Lexus, Mercedes, Porsche, Audi, Aston Martin, Lamborghini and Artega. Yet again, the comfort, design and innovation offered by Brembo brake systems carry the banner of absolute excellence in the automotive sector, with the company‚s products selected as original equipment for high end models made by the world's premier car makers: supercars which ˜ thanks to Brembo ˜ deliver braking performance second to none. These are dream cars capable typically of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in a few magical seconds and now, the Auto Motor and Sport has had the idea of measuring their superiority in terms of deceleration ˜ a key element in critical situations if accidents are to be avoided.

The test was conducted with state-of-the-art measuring methods and instruments, and resulted in a list of the world‚s 25 best cars in terms of braking performance. Of these, no less than 21 are equipped with Brembo monobloc aluminum calipers, one of the company‚s flagship products: machined from a single billet of metal, ensuring precise and constant modulability in operation, advantageously lightweight, and presenting a visual finish much sought after by the leading car makers. In fact, not only do these Brembo calipers come with the most complex and sophisticated color finishes imaginable, but also, their design will often reflect and complement the characteristic styling features of the car. 15 of the cars named by the magazine are equipped with Brembo brake discs: 13 with Brembo carbon-ceramic, and 2 with Brembo dual-cast.

Carbon-ceramic discs are developed by Brembo SGL Carbon Ceramic Brakes, a joint venture between Brembo and SGL Carbon. They represent the height of technological excellence in the field of friction materials, and are unparalleled in terms of performance, weight-savings, corrosion resistance and durability. The dual-cast brake disc consists of two distinct components ˜ cast-iron disc and aluminum hat ˜ cast together in a single piece. This is a product less complex than the CCM disc, technologically speaking, but still offers notable advantages, including a reduction in weight of around 15-20% compared to conventional cast iron discs.
