Brembo is to supply brakes for the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
Brembo will supply brake components on all four corners of the mid-engine Stingray.
Two separate brake package offerings will be available with the Corvette Stingray and the Stingray with the Z51 Performance Package.
Stopping the 495 horsepower, most powerful entry Corvette ever are Brembo’s all-aluminium four-piston callipers, which grasp a 321mm ventilated disc.
In addition to the brake callipers, Brembo will also include its new zero-copper Non Asbestos-Organic (NAO) brake pad which meets recent environment regulations.
The Stingray, when ordered with the Z51 Performance Package, will have an upgraded brake package to provide increased stopping power for the track-capable Corvette.
Brembo’s all-aluminium monobloc four-piston callipers on the front are a new option. The Z51 Performance Package includes low-met performance brake pads. The pads on the Z51 are 10% larger than the previous generation and feature a new zinc-nickel base coating for more longevity and resistance to corrosion.
In addition, for the first time in Corvette history, the eighth generation will come with a Brembo Electronic Parking Brake (EPB). The Brembo EPB reduces part complexity, with the elimination of a brake pedal, brake lever and associated cables.
The new design for the GM EPB delivers a 3 kg (6.6 lbs.) per car weight savings compared to the previous drum-in-hat style system.
“The Corvette with its mid-engine design will be stopped by a complete Brembo brake package from callipers to pads and you’ll park the vehicle with our EPB,” said Brembo North America president and CEO, Dan Sandberg.
“With a 0-60 time of under three seconds, we need to stop it just as fast. Both models of the Stingray are equipped with our aluminium brake callipers and newest generation of performance brake pads. The addition of the mechatronic EPB is a first on a GM vehicle.”
