[VIDEO] Brembo Shows Off Its Stopping Power in the 2015 Corvette Z06

Chevy released the amazing 0-60 time of 2.95 seconds for the 2015 Corvette Z06, the fastest time ever for a GM production car.

Equally as amazing is how quickly the Z06 can go from 60 to 0 mph – in 99.6 feet with the Z07 package!

Brembo is the brains behind that stellar performance, and the company recently released a neat video explaining how its carbon ceramic brake system does the trick.

Here are some of the details from that video:

  • Aluminum monoblock caliper.
  • Six pistons
  • Cross-drilled radiators for improved pad and brake fluid cooling.
  • Optimum force distribution pistons
  • Differentiated piston diameters – 38mm, 34mm, 30mm.
  • Three different colors
  • High-performance brake pads specifically developed for use with CCM brake rotors.
  • Carbon ceramic-matrix brake rotors (15.5 inches in front, 15.3 inches in rear), offering less weight, better performance, and no corrosion.
  • Cross drilling for maximum ventilation
  • Longer rotor life, near to zero wear, less pollution
  • Consistent performance under all operating conditions
  • Zero thermal deflection eliminates brake vibration.

It all adds up to one outstanding braking system for the new Z06, sure to be among the best in the world.
