M compound brakes have benefited from technology-transfer from motor sports, allowing them to maintain constant effectiveness and brake-fade stabilisation, even under demanding usage. The use of various highly resilient materials results in excellent thermal stability, a long lifespan and precise control. It also reduces the brakes' weight, which has a positive impact on agility, dynamics and acceleration.
The perforated, ventilated brake disc rings (380 mm front, 370 mm rear), and the brake callipers with four pistons in front and two in the rear guarantee optimal responsiveness in wet conditions, as well as improved heat dissipation. The brake callipers in blue metallic with the characteristic M logo strongly emphasise the brake discs' sporty appearance and distinct, authentic M design.
