Carbon-ceramic brake discs
The braking system of 430 Scuderia with larger carbon-ceramic brake discs has been specifi cally designed to reflect to the car's increased performance which required an overall increase in the braking performance compared to the F430.
The system includes:
- front disc brake measuring 15.6 x 1.4 in with one-block 6-pots aluminium callipers with a 30/34/38 diameter;
- rear disc brake measuring 13.7 x 1.3 in with 4-pots aluminium callipers with a 38/42 diameter.
The front discs with a larger diameter (+ 0.7 in compared to the F430) increase the braking effi ciency and have been specifi cally designed to allow the correct heat dispersion while also providing an increased resistance to brake-fade. These components, together with the front 6-pots callipers, assure consistent and excellent performance on the racetrack.
The brake pedal feel has been optimised for all driving conditions and remains consistent even in extreme situations on the racetrack. Furthermore, the characteristics of the Carbon-Ceramic (CCM) material ensure that no vibration occurs when pushed to maximum performance unlike the traditional braking systems which often suffer from vibration under full load.
The adoption of the ESP 8.0 CPU has reduced processing times by about 15 per cent and has also optimised the calibration of the CST/ABS systems for the CCM brakes, thus ensuring maximum brake performance.
