M carbon ceramic brakes.
At the finishing line it often comes down to centimetres. During everyday braking as well. The optional M carbon ceramic brakes are the most effective way of stopping a BMW M model. Clearly recognisable by the brake callipers in fine matt gold with M logo.
Sophisticated use of the high-tech materials carbon and ceramic guarantees a sensitive response, exact control and thermal resistance even in extreme situations.
Compared to the M compound brake disc, the carbon ceramic disc weighs a further 50% less – a clear weight advantage and a reduction in unsprung masses, which has a positive effect on fuel consumption, performance and steering precision. Exceptionally resistant to corrosion, the M carbon ceramic brakes with their long service life also slow down wear. M carbon ceramic brakes will be available from July 2012 and can only be ordered in combination with the 20” M light-alloy wheels.
