Brembo “Extrema” Calipers and Carbon Ceramic Rotors

As specified for the LaFerrari

From Brembo:

The new “Extrema” Brembo caliper has distinctive traits that derives from a more minimalist approach in design, appearing decidedly more exposed and hollowed out than its predecessors. An aggressive and innovative look that translates, first and foremost, into a significant reduction (more than 3 kg) of non-suspended weight and a better feel through the pedal, with less power absorbed than hitherto (10% reduction).

The newly designed caliper also improves ventilation, with the result that brake fluid temperature is reduced by more than 30 °C. This aspect of performance has been verified by thorough-going tests conducted on the Ferrari test track at Fiorano.
Whilst the front wheels have a six piston caliper, and the rear wheels a four piston type incorporating the electric parking brake, the two calipers are visually identical. Viewed from the side, in effect, there is no discernible difference.
