Not surprising that a car making an extra 150hp with an extra 25lbs or so in front of the front axle is a little harder on brakes than your average M3.

Chris - 2000 degrees F is pretty far from white-hot when you're talking about iron. A 2000 degree piece of iron is emitting light in the orange-ish part of the spectrum, but the intensity can be high enough to cause it to appear whiter than it really is to our eyes and/or cameras depending on what's going on.
