Describing the brakes, Tesla says, “Designed for the ultimate track experience, the Model S Plaid Carbon-Ceramic Brake Kit is a complete hardware package that delivers maximum, repeatable stopping power during high-performance driving.” Perfect, then, for lapping the ‘Ring.
The new kit includes carbon-silicon carbide rotors that can withstand high heats and multiple presses of the brake pedal as you turn into corners again and again, as well as one-piece forged calipers with high-performance pads and high-temperature brake fluid.
Calipers are served up in red, as per the automotive industry’s code color for anything sporty, and the brakes are only applicable for cars that are fitted with Tesla’s 21” “Arachnid” wheels. The Tesla Model S Plaid Carbon-Ceramic Brake Kit costs $20,000 USD and is available from mid-2022.
