NEW Brembo GT-R kit pictures

This is a Brembo GT-R kit we ordered for one of our customers. He tracks his car a lot so this brake upgrade is much needed. Keep in mind that the aproximate price on the kit is about $18k and it is only used on dedicated race-cars.

Comparing to the previous generation Brembo GT-Racing kits, this new kit does not require often rebuilds and it looks much better.

This kit is a brand new product from Brembo and since we are an authorized distributor, I took some pics to show you guys.




















The GT-R system has been designed for the driver who demands exceptional performance on the street and on the track. It includes 4 or 6-piston monobloc calipers, two-piece floating brake rotors, a selection of friction materials and all the necessary hardware to insure seamless installation. The kit has been developed to fit a select number of street applications including but not limited to Porsche, Ferrari, BMW, Chevroletís Corvette and new Camaro applications.

  • The GT-R calipers machined entirely from billet, not cast aluminum.
  • Billet calipers include the benefits of a racing brake system: more stiffness, lighter weight (GT-R calipers achieve a weight reduction up to 10 percent compared to casted versions) and more thermo-mechanical resistance.
  • The nickel-plated finish provides additional treatment against corrosion and ensures a more attractive look.
  • The pistons, complete with stainless steel inserts, provide an additional heat barrier virtually eliminating fade even during max-limit and on-track driving.
  • Dual inner seals insure long life on street and track.
  • The calipers provide less brake fluid absorption and a stiffer pedal feel delivering consistent clamping force suited for drivers wanting to make the most of every second.

Other than the nickel finish, does it look any different from the regular ones?
I'm surprised the regular Brembo calipers are cast. StopTech uses forged calipers.
Anyone know what the standard Brembo's use for pistons? These sound like they're stainles steel.

Those look very nice, although for 18k I would want ceramic brakes. I dont know if this transfers to the brembos. But the stoptech trophy brakes do not offer any harder clamping power over the standard stoptech brakes.

Their main advantage is their weight, about 20% lighter, and their increased resistence to color change due to anodization vs. paint.

Does this come with a new set of master cylinder as well? It doesn't make sense if it's going to use the stock ones.

These are not much heavier then a set of PCCBs. That being said, all the Porsche and Ferrari guys who seriously track their cars replace their ceramic rotors with stainless steel. There are several reasons. Firstly, ceramic rotors are too expensive to replace. They do not crack from heat; however, when you get dirt on your rotors that strips them pretty fast. Secondly, you get a much larger brake pad selection. That translates into being able to adjust your braking balance much better.

Obviously you get a better clamping power, pedal feel/control and lighter unsprung mass with the Brembo GTR system.

The major change from the previous GTR setup (the bronze one) is that this GTR kit does not need to be rebuilt often.

Any reason why Brembo dropped the standard GT floating mount hardware in favour of the Mclaren floating hardware on this kit?

Was there a problem with the regular GT hardware as seen in this pic?





The Euro GT kit already features the same Mclaren mountings front and rear as the GT-R. As in this pic
