BMW wants to equip the M5 with carbon ceramic brakes

BMW specialists are trying to find what's best for their M 5. This time they are testing some variants on carbon ceramic brakes for the sports saloon.
The M Division is not working alone as expected, but id has the help of Brembo, the brake supplier for the new M5.
Both companies have a common support from SGL Carbon that actually created a path with BWM and built carbon fiber parts to be used for the cars to come and also shares a connection with Brembo regarding the development of ceramic discs.
The carmaker declared that the package will remain approximately the same, keeping the M5's calipers, but will feature larger diameter ceramic discs that will require 20-inch wheels.
You will have the opportunity to get this package by the end of next year.
