Brembo displays OE wares for Cadillac at Detroit auto show

Jan. 17, 2008

Brembo North America Inc. showcased two major original equipment fitments on one vehicle at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit today.

The 2009 Cadillac CTS-V will be fitted with a unique Brembo brake system for the first time in North America. The system features the following:

* six-piston, aluminum, monobloc calipers with 14.6-inch dual-cast rotors in the front;

* four-piston, aluminum calipers with 14.4-inch, one-piece rotors in the rear.

Unlike traditional cast-iron discs, dual-cast discs are made of two materials: heat-resistant cast iron and lightweight aluminum.

Brembo also is a supplier to Harley Davidson in North America.
