AMG Carbon-Ceramic braking system

AMG Carbon-Ceramic braking system

Specially developed brakes cut weight and offer excellent braking performance on the track. Gold-painted calipers feature "AMG Carbon Ceramic" logos. Harder, longer-wearing carbon-fiber-reinforced ceramic discs endure extreme heat and loads, for even shorter stopping distances and higher fade-resistance in high-performance driving. The two-piece floating discs are larger up front (15.8 inches), with higher total braking force, yet 40 percent lighter, to enhance suspension and steering response.

Disclaimer

The carbon-ceramic brakes are designed expressly for high-performance braking. It is a characteristic of their materials and design that brake noise/squeal may result, along with differing brake pedal feel at lower brake temperatures compared to higher operating temperatures.
