Not only is Ferrari the world's first car manufacturer to offer such an expensive option as standard but was also the first to introduce the technology five years ago on the Enzo.
Ferrari's clients get a nice surprise at the Bologna Motor Show, with the announcement that all Ferrari models from 2008 will be fitted with Brembo brakes along with carbon ceramic material (CCM) brake disks. Not only is Ferrari the world's first car manufacturer to offer such an expensive option as standard but was also the first to introduce the technology five years ago on the Enzo. With over 85% of orders on certain models including CCM brakes, Ferrari though it was appropriate to offer it range wide, but additionally to cross publicize this year's Formula 1 double world championship.
From the press release, “Brakes featuring CCM discs offer much more responsive braking as well as consistently excellent performance in intensive use. One of the most obvious advantages to adopting them is their exceptional fade resistance – fade in fact compromises the driver’s feeling of control when it comes to the pressure required on the brake pedal and responsiveness.”
“The CCM discs have a longer life under normal conditions, a fact that has clear financial advantages. Furthermore, even with continual track use, CCM brakes offer greater resistance to wear for better durability on track. “
“The CCM braking system also cuts around 15 kg off the car’s total weight which not only improves overall performance but also reduces unsprung mass and thus improves vehicle dynamics and ride comfort.“
