Brembo, the world leader and acknowledged innovator of brake technology, is the stopping partner of choice for the new 2022 Cadillac CT4-V Blackwing and CT5-V Blackwing.
The new performance sedans will employ Brembo lightweight technology on all four corners of the brand’s flagship super sedans. A high performance cast iron disc system is standard on both vehicles, while Brembo’s most advanced carbon-ceramic brake system will be available on the supercharged, 668-horsepower CT5-V Blackwing —a first-of-its-kind option for Cadillac.
“We are excited to provide Cadillac with their first-ever carbon-ceramic brake package,” said Dan Sandberg, Brembo North America president and CEO. “This will be our fourth generation of brake systems stopping the Cadillac V-Series sedans, and it is certainly a highlight of our 15-year history with Cadillac.”
“The Brembo carbon ceramic brake package on the CT5-V Blackwing will save 28.8kg (63.5 lbs.), further heightening the athleticism of this super sedan. The unique, new Tech Bronze color of the large Brembo Calipers peering through the CT5-V’s wheels, accentuate the performance, sophistication and confident look of the CT5-V Blackwing. We even went so far as to etch the V-Series logo into the bell of the carbon disc.”
Brembo’s leadership in carbon brake technology has been earned from decades of experience in Formula 1 and on the world’s toughest racetracks. The Brembo Group has been manufacturing carbon-ceramic discs for automotive applications since 2002.
Brembo supplies the stopping power for the winning Cadillac DPi-V.R racecar in the IMSA WeatherTech Championship, where Cadillac has won the Rolex 24 at Daytona four years in a row.
