Brembo has been selected to supply an optimized brake system for the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro.
The sixth generation Camaro is all-new from the ground up, and is at least 200 pounds lighter than the model it replaces, for a lighter, more agile driving experience. That experience is supported by Brembo brakes, available on both the LT and SS models.
Touted as a Detroit-made muscle car, the Camaro’s brake system is also Michigan-based. The rotors are made in Michigan and the entire Brembo brake system will be assembled in Brembo’s Homer, Michigan, plant.
According to Brembo, the four-piston, two-piece aluminum calipers are designed specifically for weight savings and are among the stiffest available with virtually no distortion from high thermal and torque loads, even under the most demanding conditions. The anodized aluminum-constructed and corrosion-resistant Brembo calipers offer reduced weight over traditional calipers.
On the Camaro LT, the available Brembo brakes include 12.6-inch (321×30 mm) front rotors with four-piston aluminum calipers. Camaro SS employs 13.6-inch (345×30 mm) front rotors with four-piston aluminum calipers and 13.3-inch (339×26 mm) rear rotors with four-piston calipers.
