Compound disc brakes.
Getting from 0 to 100 km/h is important, getting from 100 km/h to 0 even more so. The compound disc brakes make dynamic driving safer and more enjoyable.
Thanks to the clearly defined pressure point, the braking power can always be applied precisely. The high-performance compound system also assuredly eliminates fading – the decline in braking power at high temperatures has been systematically minimised.
Compound disc brakes in the BMW M5 also actively contribute to improving driving dynamics in another respect: using aluminium brake disc chambers and locating them behind special light-alloy wheels significantly reduces the rotating and unsprung masses. The noticeable result is maximum efficiency during braking with top performance for handling and agility.
