From 0 to 100 km/h is important, from 100 km/h to 0 is more important. The optional M carbon ceramic brakes, which were specially developed by BMW M GmbH, provide an powerful back-up for dynamic driving fun.
Thanks to the clearly defined pressure point, braking power can always be applied precisely. The M carbon ceramic brakes guarantee maximum braking performing performance under all thermal conditions.
The M carbon ceramic brakes in the BMW M5 Sedan actively contribute to improved driving dynamics in another respect: thanks to their reduced weight, they significantly reduce the rotating and unsprung masses in the vehicle. The noticeable result is top braking figures in any weather conditions and on any surface. Which means top performance in terms of handling and agility.
Dependent on conditions and usage, features specific to the materials used can lead to operational noises particularly in wet conditions just before the vehicle comes to a halt. The impact of moisture and road salt can cause the braking action to be equivalent to a conventional brake system. This can for a short time be experienced as a reduction in braking action and can be balanced out by greater pressure on the pedal where necessary.
