2021: Brembo dominates the top 15 best braking cars

9/21/2021

 Of these, no fewer than 13 are equipped with Brembo brakes - 87% of the total.

​​​​​​​​​​​​



10th place FERRARI F12 BERLINETTA: ​

FROM 100 KM/H (62.1 MPH) TO 0 IN 31.3 METERS (102.7 FEET)​

 

Powered by a 6.2 liter, direct injection, 65° V12 engine, the F12 Berlinetta is the patriarch of extreme 12-cylinder engine cars. Like those developed by Ferrari for Formula 1, this engine (which is positioned 3 cm (1.2 in) lower than on the 599 GTB Fiorano) has extremely low inertia which offers very fast acceleration. 


There are no cars from Maranello without Brembo brakes: a solid bond begun in 1975 with steel discs for the Ferrari team. In this case, on the other hand, the 398 mm (15.7 in) discs on the front and the 360 mm (14.2) discs on the rear are made of carbon-ceramic material: ideal for outstanding and consistent performance, thanks in part to the Brembo calipers, 6-piston on the front and 4-piston on the rear. Performance, comfort, and design, all in one. ​


 

9th Place LOTUS EXIGE CUP 380​

FROM 100 KM/H (62.1 MPH) TO 0 IN 31 METERS (101.7 FEET)​

A fantastic car, with a weight-power ratio that is almost unparalleled anywhere in the world. The only defect, in our opinion, is the absence of a Brembo braking system. And just think that Ayrton Senna won his first Formula 1 GP, in 1985 at Estoril (Portugal), with Lotus and using Brembo brake calipers.​


 

8th Place CHEVROLET CORVETTE C6 Z06​

FROM 100 KM/H (62.1 MPH) TO 0 IN 31 METERS (101.7 FEET)​


 

Despite the fact that several years have passed since it was first launched, the Corvette C6 Z06 remains one of the favorite cars among American vehicle lovers, partly because of the outstanding pre-owned quality-price ratio. Credit for this goes to its 7 liter aluminum V8 engine with 2-valve per cylinder timing. Incredible power, exemplified by the fact that it will do higher than 100 km/h (62 mph) without leaving first gear. 


The braking power of this Chevrolet is second to none. It has Brembo one-piece front calipers (available in 6 colors) with 6 pistons of different diameters which optimally distribute the force on the pads developed to work efficiently with the 394 mm (15.5 in) carbon-ceramic discs. At the rear, on the other hand, it has 380 mm (15 in) discs and 4-piston calipers. Low weight, outstanding performance.


 

7th Place CHEVROLET CORVETTE C7 Z06​

FROM 100 KM/H (62.1 MPH) TO 0 IN 31 METERS (101.7 FEET)​

 

For the C7 Z06 (and the C7 Grand Sport), the engine is slightly smaller than the sixth generation. It is a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 with an aluminum head and 1.7-liter Eaton compressor. It has 650 HP and 881 Nm of maximum torque. To increase grip on turns and stability on straights, it is shod with wider tires than its predecessor. 


The Brembo braking system has also been designed to enhance vehicle performance. The aluminum one-piece calipers, with 6 pistons at the front and 4 pistons at the rear, use opposing pistons with different diameters for quicker, more responsive braking, not only on the track. With 394 mm carbon-ceramic discs at the front and 388 mm discs at the rear (15.5 & 15.3 in) on both the Z06 and the Gran Sport, there is a weight reduction of 4.5 kg (9.9 lb) on each wheel.


 

6th Place MERCEDES AMG GTR PRO​

FROM 100 KM/H (62.1 MPH) TO 0 IN 30.7 METERS (100.7 FEET)​

 


Made as a limited edition, the AMG GTR PRO perfectly embodies the AMG DNA, giving the driver the sort of driving experience found in motorsports. The heart of the car is its twin-turbo AMG 4-liter V8 engine which delivers 585 HP and a maximum torque of 700 Nm. It has remarkable handling and corner speed due both to its low center of gravity and adjustable suspension. 


It is a definite match for racing cars even when it comes to braking, not least because of its carbon-ceramic discs which do not deform at high temperatures. They measure 402 mm in diameter at the front and 380 mm at the rear (15.8 & 15 in). The front ones are gripped by 6-piston calipers and the rear by 4-piston calipers. Both are fixed and one-piece, with clear advantages in terms of light weight and performance. ​
