Brembo Braking Technology for the new Maserati MC20


Source: Brembo announcement

CURNO, Italy – Brembo, world leader in the design and production of braking systems, is the supplier of choice for the entire braking system of the new Maserati MC20.

At the front, the new Trident super sports car is stopped by Brembo radial mounted monobloc 6-piston brake calipers. The calipers converge on 390 x 36 mm Brembo CCM (carbon ceramic material) brake discs to offer superior stopping power.

At the rear, the Brembo 4-piston monobloc brake calipers grab onto 360 x 28 mm Brembo CCM brake discs.

Given the high loads generated by the pressure of the pistons on the pads, to ensure maximum rigidity and less deformation, the monobloc calipers are machined from a single block of cast aluminum.

Aluminum is a material known for its lightness and strength. Brembo has designed six different caliper color for the MC20 to allow even more personalization of the car.

Brembo CCM brake discs offer a 50-percent reduction in weight compared to cast iron. This advantage results in a significant reduction in the vehicle’s unsprung mass, which translates into exceptional vehicle dynamic behavior when driving and remarkable comfort when cruising.

The braking system is complemented by the company’s electronic parking brake (EP), the result of extensive development and research into technologies capable of improving performance and comfort both for vehicles on the move and during stops.
