The M Carbon Ceramic Brake System is a technology taken directly from motorsport. Made from an innovative carbon-fibre compound ceramic, braking power is even more direct and improves brake-fade stabilisation. It is also corrosion free, tolerates more heat, features strongly reduced abrasion and contributes to lower vehicle weight. Systematic implementation of lightweight construction reduces rotating and unsprung mass, improving acceleration, responsiveness and overall handling, but also increasing driving dynamics, traction and suspension comfort, and reducing fuel consumption.
With its enlarged brake dimensions (400 mm front, 380 mm rear) and increased number of pistons, the M Carbon Ceramic Brake System's heat resistance in continuous operation means it’s fit for the racecourse. The perforated, ventilated brake disc rings guarantee optimal responsiveness in wet conditions, as well as ideal heat dissipation. The six-piston fixed-calliper brakes in the front and the four-piston fixed-calliper brakes in the rear are instantly recognisable thanks to their Gold Metallic brake callipers and the characteristic M logo.
