: Track Brake Package

From the full write up at Edmunds.com (http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FullTests/articleId=131206?tid=edmunds.il.home.photopanel..2 .*).

The car we brake-tested wore an optional "track" brake package, identifiable by the red calipers and non-slotted brake rotors. The combination of the tires and the brake package helped bring the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V to rest from 60 mph in 109 feet.

Cadillac says the standard brakes with six-piston Brembo calipers up front and four-piston units in back should stop the CTS-V in about the same distance, but won't have quite the heat resistance that the track brakes do (which is the point of special brake packages, really).

Anyone know if this is part of a package? I did not see the option on my order.

It'll probably be a Dealer installed accessory, just like the Corsa exhaust or drilled rotors on the Gen.1 CTS-V.

What we've been hearing is Cadillac/GM will be offering more after market accessories for this V than the models of the years past. Here's hoping that comes true as they would be backed by the warranty.
