Brembo Braking Technology on the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V

Grand Prix of St. Petersburg 2015, Pirelli World Challenge, St P

Brembo brake calipers and brake rotors are standard equipment on the Cadillac line of V-Series performance cars for a second generation. Brembo’s 40-years of racing experience directly contribute to the “track-tested and road-ready” ATS-V. Cut from billet aluminum, Brembo brake calipers are lighter than traditional calipers and corrosion resistant. The top loading brake pad design makes for ease of service.  Further exploiting lessons learned on race tracks around the world, the Brembo caliper has a pull-back brake pad feature that reduces drag and contributes to lower rolling resistance which improves fuel economy and lap times.

Helping to boost the stopping power and quiet application the Brembo two-piece ventilated brake disc which utilizes two different materials—aluminum for the hat and cast iron for the brake ring. This combination enhances the braking performance under track operating conditions and virtually eliminates vibration from typical street driving.  Brembo calipers offer a unique look to the inside of the 18-inch Cadillac aluminum wheel with exclusive flat color options of red, gold and black.
