Hype Video: Brembo Shows How They Stop LaFerrari With New Extrema Calipers

Posted on 03.12.13 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Just seven days ago the world was introduced to what could possibly be the fastest prancing horse ever built AKA “LaFerrari”.  With a car that is so powerful and so light, superhuman brakes are would be needed to stop it.  Naturally, Ferrari turned to Brembo to come up with such a solution; the result of which are the new “Extrema” calipers.

The Extrema calipers are possibly the lightest, most efficient calipers Brembo has ever produced for a production car.  They are monoblock aluminum and feature several channels and vents for the best airflow possible to control temperatures.  The Extrema are also the first Brembo calipers to have an electronic parking brake integrated into the unit.

Besides the increased performance, Brembo also wanted to make sure their new calipers looked good when they are bringing hypercars to a halt so in addition to blessing them with a very pleasing shape, they will offer Extrema calipers in 9 different colors!

If you want to see how all the tech and style come together, watch the video from Brembo below featuring a 3D wireframe of LaFerrari as well as a few pictures.
