An advanced braking system had to be developed for a next-generation hybrid sports car with Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive to achieve an intuitive brake feeling in a variety of driving conditions, ultimate track performance and reduction of CO2 emissions per vehicle. This paper outlines the integration of brake-by-wire with traditional high-performance braking hardware and describes the technology needed to achieve these goals. Key focus areas to generate these results were: brake feeling control, corner hardware specification considerations and brake cooling.
