Alcon, a company that supplies performance components for companies such as Audi, Bentley, JLR, Ariel, Noble and other has now launched an aftermaket carbon ceramic brake kit for supercars, with the first application being the Nissan GT-R.
The CCX (Carbon Ceramic Xtreme) disc material comes with half the mass of a similarly-sized iron rotor and was developed in-house by Alcon. The company offers multiple size that can fit multiple supercars.

The Nissan GT-R carbon ceramic kit includes:

• 400mm front ventilated, cross-drilled CCX discs mounted to stainless steel bells
• 385mm rear ventilated, cross-drilled CCX discs mounted to stainless steel bells
• New 6-piston, monobloc billet front calipers fitted with Alcon CCX-1 pads
•  6-piston, monobloc billet rear calipers fitted with Alcon CCX-1 pads

“The brake systems on most modern supercars are without doubt of a very high quality - stopping distances, brake feel and fade resistance are significantly better than on previous such cars.  The systems are, however, a compromise between cost, performance and refinement. The CCX range of products developed by Alcon takes things to another level and the leap in outright braking performance is a quantum one,” said Alcon’s Sales Director, Jonathan Edwards.
