Ultra High Performance Brembo Gran Turismo Brake System packages were developed to offer race-inspired braking components that are endowed with several significant advantages over a vehicle’s original braking system to provide superior braking time after time. They are for drivers who want to make a statement by substantially improving the looks and performance of their vehicle’s braking system.
While they are available for sports cars, sporty coupes, sedans, light trucks and SUVs, in most cases the Gran Turismo Brake System’s massive aluminum calipers and large diameter brake discs require the use of aftermarket wheels with the necessary brake clearance.
The wheel fitment specialists at Tire Rack have developed a list of appropriate wheel options per vehicle based on the exact brake kit chosen. This information, designed to make your purchase of Gran Turismo Brake Systems easier and to ensure product compatibility, is available by speaking to any member of our sales team.
Brembo Gran Turismo Systems provide excellent stopping power in everyday traffic, as well as superior high performance street and track driving. They are designed to bolt onto the vehicle’s original suspension and are fully compatible with the vehicle’s stock brake master cylinder and anti-lock braking system (ABS).
While most Brembo Gran Turismo Brake System packages have been developed specifically to replace the vehicle’s front brakes (due to the high braking demands encountered there), rear brake systems are also offered for selected applications. For vehicles not offering a Gran Turismo System for the rear axle, Brembo Sport brake rotors (slotted or drilled) are available to replace the stock rotors on the rear axle and provide a matched appearance on all four corners of the vehicle.
Gran Turismo Brake Systems packages combine high performance fixed aluminum brake calipers, large diameter 1- or 2-piece vented brake rotors, brake pads, stainless steel braided brake lines and aircraft quality mounting brackets and hardware. (See photo and chart below.) Brake caliper and rotor sizes are selected based on the vehicle’s requirements. In most cases, the aluminum calipers are available in red, silver or black finishes. Additionally, the rotors feature drilled or slotted disc surfaces depending on the vehicle application and brake system selected. All cross-drilled holes are bi-angle chamfered at the rotor’s outer surfaces to help reduce the cracking caused by repeated, high stress, high temperature brake applications. Gran Turismo brake discs are coated for corrosion resistance to help eliminate rust and to offer a bold, aggressive appearance to enhance the look of the vehicle’s road wheels.

Applications using the 2-piece brake rotors combine specific, machined billet aluminum hats with a large diameter vented brake disc. The manner in which these two pieces are bolted together results in a "floating disc" which reduces heat related stress, and improves brake performance and pedal feel.
Brembo Gran Turismo Brake Systems packages are designed to meet the challenges of high performance street and track driving while adding an authentic, race-ready look. They are sold in axle pairs.
Brake rotors are wear items and as such, should also be inspected regularly and replaced as necessary. Rotors should be replaced when their "Worn Rotor Minimum Thickness" (expressed in millimeters) has reached the prescribed limit engraved on the edge of the brake disc.
