If you own a modern Ferrari or Lamborghini, your car most likely contains carbon ceramic brakes. Carbon ceramic brakes were a development from the aerospace industry that eventually found their way into the automotive industry. These brakes are a significant upgrade over conventional steel brakes. The most significant advantage of carbon ceramic brakes is the heat dissipating qualities of them. Here are some things to consider about carbon ceramic brakes.

On high-performance exotic cars every single pound of weight counts. 100Lbs of weight savings can equal a gain of about 1HP. With carbon ceramic brakes being 50% lighter than conventional steel brakes the weight savings can add rather quickly.
