SVT stepped up the front brake caliper from a two-piece to a stiffer monoblock, six-piston caliper from Brembo. The staggered piston diameters--30, 34, and 38mm--more evenly apply force to the pad, which is pulled asymmetrically by the rotating disc. The rear caliper is a derivative of the long-running Mustang caliper with integral parking brake, and it gets a new bracket because of the larger rotor. SVT worked hard to develop a firmer, shorter travel brake pedal with aggressive initial bite for the new GT500.
