The specific range for high-class cars
Parts manufactured with a customised technical approach and special solutions.
The Brembo Premium range consists of composite and floating brake discs, with high performance and innovative solutions that includes special materials, machining of the brake surface and dedicated ventilations.
Thanks to these technological solutions, Brembo guarantees top performance also in extreme conditions, greater resistance of the brake discs and optimal driving comfort. The range covers top-end models by important car makers such as Porsche, Mercedes, Audi, Aston Martin and Bmw.
Floating brake discs: the top of the top
The range of floating brake discs includes 26 codes directly derived Brembo from OE production. The range encompasses the most exclusive and top performing applications that require high-performance braking systems that can only be guaranteed by Brembo experience in racing.
Floating brake discs have an aluminium hub that ensures significant reduction of unsprung masses, with a positive effect on comfort, handling and fuel consumption/emissions. The performance of the brake system takes advantage from the union of the disc hub with the braking surface in special cast iron, by means of fastening bushes. In this way, when subjected to thermal stress, this type of brake disc allows a radial expansion of the braking surface, thus avoiding permanent deformation and tensions.
The importance of the weight
The aluminium hub, instead of a cast iron one, allows the weight of the brake disc to be reduced by aprroximately 20%.
If compared with the vehicle weight, this reduction could appear marginal. However, it has a very important impact on fuel consumption, performance and car behaviour, since the brake disc is part of the vehicle's unsprung weight.
In recent years, the reduction of the vehicle weight and of the unsprung masses is one of the main targets of the car manufacturers to meet the needs of greater reduction in fuel consumption and emissions.
