BMW M5 Sedan: Compound disc brakes

Compound disc brakes.

Getting from 0 to 60 mph is important, getting from 60 to 0, even more so. The M compound disc brakes make dynamic driving safer and more enjoyable.

Thanks to the clearly defined pressure point in the brake pedal, braking power can always be applied with precision. The high-performance compound system also eliminates fading–the decline in braking power at high temperatures has been systematically minimized.

Compound disc brakes in the BMW M5 also actively contribute to improving driving dynamics in another respect–using aluminum disc hubs and locating them behind the M light-alloy wheels significantly reduces the rotating and "unsprung" masses. The noticeable result is maximum efficiency during braking with top performance for handling and agility.
