Bugatti Bolide features Brembo’s largest-ever carbon-carbon brake system

Bugatti readies for the launch of its Bolide track car, a production version of the 2020 Bolide concept, under the directive of former Bugatti chief Stephan Winkelmann to explore unbounded creativity.

Debuting on the Bolide, Brembo introduces its largest carbon-carbon brake system, inspired by Formula 1 and the Concorde supersonic jet, distinguishing it from other high-performance vehicles.

Carbon-carbon brakes, with remarkable heat resistance, draw from the Space Shuttle’s protective elements, after Brembo’s two-year investment in perfecting the Bolide’s brake system, featuring dual 8-piston front calipers and oversized carbon rotors for optimal heat dissipation.

Reflecting the front setup, the rear of the Bolide hosts similar-sized rotors and 6-piston calipers, weighing just seven pounds per rotor, optimized by Brembo engineers in collaboration with Bugatti’s design team for consistent performance.

The Bolide’s robust brake system complements its powerful quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 engine, capable of delivering up to 1,824 hp with 110-octane fuel, tailored for track use and maintaining all four turbochargers operational.

Paired with an enhanced 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the Bolide’s powertrain ensures optimal power distribution to all four wheels, promising top-tier motorsport performance.

Despite its 4 million euro price tag (about $4.3 million), all 40 units of the Bolide are sold out, reaffirming Bugatti’s status for offering exclusive luxury and performance.
