Brembo Reveals Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing Will Have Incredible Stopping Power
As standard, the CT5-V Blackwing is fitted with high-performance cast iron brakes. While the carbon ceramic brakes are similar in size with 15.7 x 1.5-inch front discs and 14.6 x 1.3 inch rear discs, they are significantly lighter. While the standard front discs weigh 36.6 inches, the carbon ceramic version only weighs 16.5 inches. Likewise, at the rear carbon ceramic brake discs weigh 12.8 pounds, around half the weight of the standard rear discs that weigh 24.5 pounds. In total, the ceramic brake package reduces the CT5-V’s weight by 63.6 pounds, which is a significant saving for a large luxury sedan. Unsprung weight savings on each corner will also improve the CT5-V Blackwing’s handling.
“We are excited to provide Cadillac with their first-ever carbon-ceramic brake package,” said Dan Sandberg, Brembo North America president and CEO. “This will be our fourth generation of brake systems stopping the Cadillac V-Series sedans, and it is certainly a highlight of our 15-year history with Cadillac.”
