High-Performance Brembo® Brakes

Massive, six-piston calipers, along with the huge 14.2-inch ventilated, cross-drilled rotors in the front and their 13.6-inch counterparts in the rear help provide short, fade-free stops. Additionally, special front bumper air ducts and a unique ventilation structure help cool the brakes quickly. The result? A Brembo braking system specifically crafted for the fastest, most dominant sedan Lexus has ever built.
