In order to ensure unrivalled safety margins in emergency situations, Brembo has developed and fine-tuned monitoring software that activates dynamic braking. In the event that both of the calipers’ hydraulic circuits should fail to operate, the driver can still stop the car by using the electromechanical actuator.
The new Brembo caliper also has a hot-brake reclamp feature. This means that when the vehicle is parked on a slope, the software automatically activates the caliper to recover the thermal deformation of the disc and pads, guaranteeing the safe parking of the car on the steepest slopes at very high temperatures.
The use of aluminum makes the unsprung weight significantly lower than that of a comparable cast iron floating caliper.
