A high-performance car like the 308 GT calls for a reliable, efficient braking system that gives the driver easy control over the level of braking and is suitably temperature resistant. The key elements of this system are:
• Bosch 9CE central unit distributing braking effort between the four discs.
• Front discs 330 mm in diameter and 30 mm thick, gripped by floating calipers with 60 mm pistons.
• Rear discs 268 mm in diameter on the 308 GT/290 mm in diameter on the 308 SW GT.
• Switchable ESP on the GT 180 and the GT 205.
