Brembo, the world leader and acknowledged innovator of brake technology introduced all-new M6 and M4 brake calipers at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show (Booth #23561), held at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The race inspired Brembo M6 and M4 calipers are perfect for the club racer or weekend track day enthusiast that wants to take that next step in braking. The M6 is a six-piston aluminum front caliper with performance properties gleaned from the company’s endurance caliper that helped the Ford GT win the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The pistons include racing style radiators and dual inner piston seals, with an inner pressure seal and an outer wiper seal. This innovative design provides the best combination of performance and long-lasting track use. The calipers are hard anodized for longevity and resistance to corrosion at high temperatures. The Brembo logo is racing style, engraved in red, as seen on all of the company’s competition products.
“The popularity of track day driving for performance vehicle owners has grown over the past five years,” said Dan Sandberg, Brembo North America President and CEO. “As enthusiasts get more comfortable on the track with the agility of today’s high-performance cars, they will want more speed, faster cornering and of course, better braking ability. The M6 and M4 provide that next level of performance braking while still being very compliant on the street.”
The new six-piston M6 calipers and four-piston M4 are derived from the current Brembo Gran Turismo (GT) performance caliper family. This makes the new components fully interchangeable with the GT kits, allowing them to fit under the same size wheels and accommodate the same size rotors while providing increased performance. In fact, the M6 and M4 calipers can be referenced through the same application list as the GT brake systems.
The M6 is a front caliper designed for a disc that measures from 350 to 405mm, with a thickness of 32 to 34mm. The M4 is used for the rear axle as well as for some front applications and wraps around disc sizes from 328 to 380mm. The M6 and M4 share the same Brembo design characteristics that have been proven at the top rungs of motorsport for over 40 years.
Brembo offers a comprehensive range of products dedicated exclusively to motorsports and designed to deliver the best results when used in the most extreme conditions: consistent performance, superior braking power, precision and control, and resistance to very high temperatures. All Brembo racing application products are the result of ongoing research and development in collaboration with the world’s most prestigious teams. All of these products are designed and manufactured in-house and track tested.
The Brembo M6 and M4 will be available for purchase in 2017 from Race Technologies (www.racetechnologies.com), Brembo’s exclusive North American import distributor.
