The Brembo B-M8 is an 8-piston monobloc caliper with four pads, suitable for rotors up to 420mm x 40mm (16.53” x 1.57”). This all-new caliper is specifically made for the front braking systems of trucks, SUVs and large high-performance sedans. As one of the largest calipers manufactured by Brembo, at 15.8 inches x 5.51 inches x 7.1 inches, the B-M8 required more than one thousand design hours, which included on-vehicle testing and casting technology development. The B-M8 is validated for torques up to 5700Nm (4204 lb ft).
The B-M8 is available in four colors – red, yellow, black and new to the market white, with a few “optional” colors. The companion caliper, the B-M4, for rotors up to 380mm x 30 mm, is 12.2” x 6,42” x 3.54” and suitable for the rear braking systems of larger vehicles as well as front applications for smaller cars. The B-M8 and B-M4 are ideal for a variety of domestic and import trucks, SUVs, and sedans including, but not limited to Ford F-Series and Expedition, Dodge Ram, Toyota Tundra, Nissan Frontier, Land Rover Range Rover, Mercedes-Benz SUVs and Porsche Cayenne.
This new caliper aligns with Brembo’s principles of developing new and innovative products with a designed flair. The B-M8 will not only provide superior stopping performance, but will also deliver a design aesthetic that fills the large wheel openings of today’s 22-inch truck and car wheels. The company have taken its expertise in the motorsports world and applied it to large truck and SUV braking systems to create one of the largest and best looking calipers in the Brembo line.
