Brembo Gran Turismo 345mm (13.6") Front Big Brake System is for the discriminating MINI owner who wants only the 'best available' for their MINI. The 'Brembo' name says it all - Street Performance setup with exceptional braking performance and looks GREAT on the MINI!
Fits the following models:
2014-2020 F56 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop
2015-2020 F55 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop 4-Door
2016-2021 F57 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Convertible
This Brembo Gran Turismo Front Brake System for the 3rd Generation F-Series MINI is comprised of 345mm x 28mm 2-Piece vented rotors that are Drilled or Slotted. This system has a billet aluminum hat that is application specific and have been individually machined to engineering specifications. The marriage of these pieces create a "floating disc" which reduces heat related stress and improves brake performance and pedal feel. Your choice of Black, Red or Silver, 4 Piston Calipers with Street Performance pads. All mounting hardware is included.
NOTE: Before Ordering, check the Brake Caliper Template to make sure this kit fits under the wheels on your MINI. These calipers are very wide calipers that require extra clearance behind the spokes.
Available with the following options:

MINI offers Brembo Brakes on the JCW models, but the JCW brakes has smaller 335mm diameter 'solid' 1-piece rotors (not drilled or slotted) compared to this Grand Turismo Kit with 345mm x 28mm 'full floating" 2-piece rotors with Aluminum hats for less unsprung weight (for improved handling). The discs supplied in the kit feature an exclusive venting system that improves cooling capacity and increases resistance to cracking caused by thermal shock by over 40%. The holes or slots in the braking surface help dissipate heat and eliminate brake dust and gases.
Each Gran Turismo kit is integrate seamlessly with the MINI factory ABS and master cylinder for optimum brake balance. The calipers have sequential piston bores for even pad wear and OEM approved dust boots to protect inner pressure seals, brake fluid, and extend service life. The floating anti-rattle hardware is designed to prevents heat related stress, eliminates noise, and extends component life. The lightweight 2-piece disc assemblies reduce "unsprung" weight for improved vehicle dynamics.
The Ferodo FM1000 compound pads are included in every Brembo High Performance system. The FM1000 is a proprietary compound supplied by Ferodo to Brembo for great initial response, feel and modulation characteristics in a wide range of environments.
Type2 vs. Type3 Slotted Rotors - What are the differences?
The Type 3 Slot Pattern has an increased initial bite when the brakes are applied and a quicker pad release when the ABS kicks in or the driver’s foot is removed from the brake pedal. This means the vehicle will be accelerating quicker out of the corner helping the driver win more races.
Brake fluid should be replaced every 2 years, more often if you track your MINI. For High Performance Brake Fluids, see the following:
BREMBO GT BRAKING SYSTEMS
Braking systems consisting of motorsports-derived components offering superlative performance for both normal driving and demanding track day sessions.
For drivers who demand the utmost from their MINI.
Designed and tested specifically for track day enthusiasts and for drivers who demand the utmost performance from their cars, these kits offer superlative performance for both normal driving and demanding track day sessions.
Brembo kits consist of cross-drilled or slotted ventilated, integral or composite discs and aluminium calipers with 4 pistons; a complete set of high performance pads; metal-braided hoses and high quality hardware.
Solutions and technologies born on the race track
Braking systems consisting of motorsports-derived components offering levels of technology and performance without par on the market today and embodying the purest expression of Brembo's state-of-the-art technology.
The kit consists of aluminium calipers with opposed pistons which, depending on the car model and in increasing order of performance, may be composite, monoblock or even billet monoblock components, combined with cross-drilled or slotted integral or composite oversized discs. Brembo kits combine the best solutions available to offer the perfect solution for the individual characteristics of each model.
The heart of the kit consists of aluminium calipers. These are monoblock parts machined from a single billet of cast aluminium, which ensure outstanding rigidity and minimised deformation. The discs supplied in the kit, which may either be floating or integral, depending on the specific car model, feature an exclusive venting system that improves cooling capacity and increases resistance to cracking caused by thermal shock by over 40%.
Cross-drilled and slotted finishes are designed and executed with meticulous precision. These holes or slots in the braking surface help dissipate heat and eliminate brake dust and gases.
A set of high-performance brake pads with specific friction materials for each application, TÜV/DOT homologated metal-braided hoses, an adapter and high-quality fastener hardware complete the kit.
More braking torque and thermal capacity on the track.
Using radial-mounted fixed calipers together with oversized discs gives the system greater braking torque and superior thermal capacity. The result is a braking action that is noticeably more immediate and decisive even in normal road usage, and is extraordinarily powerful and consistent under the repeated loads of track use. Fixed calipers improve the durability and efficiency of the system: the opposed multiple pistons act on the pads with more precision, due to the smaller piston diameter and the reduced pressure exerted on each individual piston, while the greater overall surface area between the pads and pistons results in more uniform friction surface wear. The superlative stiffness of the calipers and the metal braided hoses reduce brake fluid absorption. The result is improved, more stable brake pedal pressure, making it possible to modulate braking force more precisely and enhancing pedal feel. Featuring a hat in aluminium alloy, the oversized floating disc system reduces unsprung mass (for improved handling) and thermal stress. The mounting system is engineered to permit a greater degree of both radial and axial float. This characteristic, together with the greater dimensions of the braking rotor surface, improves the dispersion of the heat generated by the repeated, intense thermal stress that the discs are subjected to, for consistent braking performance and pedal feel even after numerous laps on the track.
Eye-catching, unique looks.
With a combination of painted calipers (available in red, black, silver or yellow) flaunting the Brembo logo, and slotted or cross-drilled discs, the Gran Turismo kit gives an unmistakably sporty, eye-catching look to the car, offering that extra special touch for drivers who want their vehicle to stand out from the crowd.
