I love the joke about Panda skin...

It's really more of a testament to how great of a pad that is.
The Ferodo FM1000 is a proprietary pad compound developed specifically for these sort of high performance applications.

The great thing about the GT-R brake kit is that you can chose quite a few of the specs yourself, from pad compound to rotor size, to rotor style. Obviously the rotor dimensions and styles that are available need to be approved by engineering, but pads are a very subjective item for the driver and you can make that call.
