Brembo curbs the 800 horsepower produced by the Vulcan

1/27/2016

 The 24 units of the British Aston Martin Vulcan are fitted with Brembo CCM-R brake discs

Forty years of experience in automotive racing have allowed Brembo to develop and build braking systems that are specifically designed for every category: from Formula 1 to Le Mans prototypes and GT cars. Brembo gained significant know-how in carbon braking material, as well as in the application of carbon ceramic for street use.


 

                       
This experience led to Brembo being selected as supplier for the Aston Martin Vulcan, the British supercar destined exclusively for track-use.

Built with a carbon fibre monocoque that minimises the weight without compromising stiffness, this supercar has a 7-litre V12 engine which guarantees 800 horsepower.

All the 24 units put into production are fitted with Brembo braking systems as original equipment and include Brembo CCM-R brake discs measuring 380 mm x 34 mm in the front and 360 mm x 32 mm in the rear, and Brembo competition calipers in anodized aluminium with six pistons in the front and four pistons in the rear.

Brembo CCM-R discs are made expressly to offer GT cars the best performance during competitions, where high energy dissipation combines with stability of braking power.

Among the exceptional features of the Brembo CCM-R brake discs we can highlight the lifetime which is about five times longer compared to cast iron discs, and a weight that is 5 kg less per wheel, besides a lower system operating temperature and higher friction with equivalent pad compound.


 

 

 

​The same CCM-R brake disc can be used in upgrade kit applications for street use, proposed for some selected cars.

Once again, Brembo is the ideal partner for super sport applications.
