The eight-piston monobloc brakes up front and the six-piston calipers down back, both composed of nickel-plated aluminum, provide Brembo’s stopping power. While the front pads and rotors are significantly thicker, all four clamps secure 15.3-inch carbon wheels. And on each wheel, there are four pads. The largest carbon brake system Brembo has ever produced is the result of adding everything together.

According to Bugatti, this means that the brakes are comparable to those seen in Formula 1 and LMDh vehicles. “Developing the braking system for the Bugatti Bolide was a unique and very exciting challenge for Brembo’s Performance division, and we are proud of what we were able to achieve,” said Brembo Chief Operating Officer Mario Almondo. “We had to completely redesign the entire braking system to cope with the incredible yet demanding performance and power of the vehicle.” Also check our review on 2024 Mercedes-Benz GLS Facelift Review – Is Bigger, Better?

Recently, Bugatti brought the vehicle to the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari in Imola, Italy, to test it in rainy conditions. Bugatti extensively tests its extreme vehicles in all weather scenarios.  It was expected that customer deliveries of the Bolide would start earlier this year. There will only be 40 made, and they will all cost about $4 million.
