Watch the BMW M6 Coupe and Convertible in Action
The M carbon-ceramic brakes available for the first time for the new
BMW M6 Coupe and Convertible (in conjunction with 20-inch M light-alloy wheels) are without parallel worldwide and take the cars' stopping power to another new level.
The brake discs measure 410 millimeters in diameter at the front axle and 396 millimeters at the rear. Made from a new type of carbon fiber compound ceramic, the discs boast even greater resistance to heat and combine this with significantly reduced rotating masses. The M carbon ceramic brakes are 42.8 lb lighter than the standard brakes, yet the innovative material also displays exceptional resistance to wear, and the operating life of the discs is many times that of conventional equivalents.
The optional M carbon-ceramic system also sees six piston fixed caliper brakes at the front teaming up with single piston floating caliper brakes at the rear. The calipers can be identified by their special
gold colored paint finish.
