Brembo is already known as an innovative leader in the automotive industry especially when it comes to brakes. But now, the company has a new trick up its sleeve. The new 'Extrema' Brembo caliper is made specifically for higher end sports car. Brembo comments, "a product designed to meet the demands of an extremely demanding and continuously evolving market."
One of those evolving market demands is weight reduction. Brembo has mastered this by hollowing out the caliper, which translates into approximately 6.6 pounds of non-suspended weight, and better feel through the pedal. In addition to weight reduction, the caliper also has impressive ventilation resulting in a reduced brake fluid temp of 86 degrees F. The new caliper will initially be offered in nine colors (one being anodized).
This particular caliper is derived from Brembo's work in Formula 1, and these are some additional impressive features of the new 'Extrema' listed by Brembo:
