The M6 is a six-piston aluminum front caliper with performance properties gleaned from the company’s endurance caliper that helped the Ford GT win the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The pistons, with racing style radiators and no external dust seal, provide the best combination of performance and long-lasting track use. The calipers are hard anodized for longevity and resistance to corrosion at high temperatures. The Brembo logo is racing style, engraved in red, as seen on all of the company’s competition products.
“The popularity of track day driving for performance vehicle owners has grown over the past five years,” said Dan Sandberg, Brembo North America President and CEO. “As enthusiasts get more comfortable on the track with the agility of today’s high-performance cars, they will want more speed, faster cornering and of course, better braking ability. The M6 and M4 provide thatnext level of performance braking while still being very compliant on the street.”
The new six-piston M6 calipers and four-piston M4 are derived from the current Brembo Gran Turismo (GT) performance caliper family. This makes the new components fully interchangeable with the GT kits, allowing them to fit under the same size wheels and accommodate the same size rotors while providing increased performance. In fact, the M6 and M4 calipers can be referenced through the same application list as the GT brake systems.
The M6 is a front caliper designed for a disc that measures from 350 to 405mm, with a thickness of 32 to 34mm. The M4 is used for the rear axle as well as for some front applications and wraps around disc sizes from 328 to 380mm. The M6 and M4 share the same Brembo design characteristics that have been proven at the top rungs of motorsport for over 40 years.
The Brembo M6 and M4 will be available for purchase in 2017 from Race Technologies (www.racetechnologies.com), Brembo’s exclusive North American import distributor.
