The brakes. BMW M6 Coupé and BMW M6 Convertible.
12. Feb. 12

The latest version of the compound high-performance braking system helps give the new BMW M6 Coupe and Convertible outstanding stopping power. Its stand-out features include even lower weight, excellent feel and fade-free performance even under heavy loads.

The diameter of the inner-vented and perforated brake disks is 400 millimetres at the front and 396 millimetres at the rear. The six-piston fixed-calliper brakes at the front axle – painted dark blue metallic and complete with the M logo – are radially bolted to the pivot bearing.

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 millimetres in diameter at the front axle and 396 millimetres at the rear. Made from a new type of carbon-fibre compound ceramic, the discs boast even greater resistance to heat and combine this with significantly reduced rotating masses. The M carbon-ceramic brakes are 19.4 kg (42.8 lb) lighter than the standard-fitted items, 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-calliper brakes at the front teaming up with floating-calliper brakes with electromechanical parking brakes at the rear. The callipers can be identified by their special gold-coloured paint finish.
