12/6/2017

Blank, cross-drilled (Brembo Xtra), slotted (Brembo Max) or sports disks Brembo offers 4 different brake disc lines for the Fiat 500 (312): there's something for everyone!

The years go by for everyone, even for your splendid Fiat 500 (312). You've travelled so far together that the time has come to change the discs and pads to make your braking system as good as new.
Brake disks are a very important part of the braking system of a car, but not all disks are the same, and neither are brands. Would you buy a product from an unknown brand? You'd certainly never take such a gamble. This is why it's important to choose a leading brand like Brembo, with its unmatched experience as a partner to the world's most prestigious car manufacturers for over 50 years.
Brembo knows everything there is to know about brakes, and has selected 4 different solutions to give your Fiat 500 (312) the best braking system possible. Always remember to replace the brake pads together with the disks, as using new disks with worn friction material could damage them quickly.


 

Brembo Original

Brembo brake discs with undrilled rotors have already been chosen by millions of other motorists. What sets these disks apart are their undrilled, unslotted rotors, which not only make for a more comfortable driving experience but also minimize pad wear.
It's understandable to have a few qualms about changing such an important component, but Brembo Original discs offer exactly the same performance as the discs fitted to you car the day you drove it out of the dealer.
Pillar ventilation, UV paint technology developed in collaboration with the carmakers themselves and a superior damping coefficient achieved by increasing the percentage of carbon used in the manufacturing process are additional advantages offered by the Brembo discs in this range.
PVT Pillar Vented Technology: your new Brembo disks feature innovative pillar ventilation technology developed and patented by Brembo, which makes them even more resistant to cracking phenomena caused by high temperatures.
High Carbon: these brake disks are made with cast iron containing a high percentage of carbon, which significantly reduces brake vibration and squeal.
UV paint treatment: UV painted brake discs boast superior corrosion resistance and are more environmentally friendly. Boasting reduced environmental impact and superlative quality, UV painted brake raise the bar for efficiency and performance, while the exclusive metallic finish gives them eye-catching good looks.

Brembo Xtra

The range of high performance cross-drilled discs offers the ideal solution for anyone who wants a premium braking system.
Unquestionably stylish, Brembo Xtra disks offer responsive, effective stopping power in all braking conditions.
The secret behind the performance of these discs lies in the holes drilled into the rotor, which improve the initial grip between the pad and the disc itself even in the wet and at high disc temperatures. The special holes in the rotors of Brembo Xtra disks also keep the brake pad clear of accumulated debris. Another advantage of these holes is that they dissipate heat and expel gas from the disc, preventing dangerous brake fade.
As the cherry on the cake, Brembo Xtra cross-drilled disks also have a decidedly sporty look accentuated by the UV paint treatment.
