Esseesse Brakes

Is it possible to buy these just on their own? I can only find conflicting information as to wheather the SuperSport comes with the Esseesse brakes so I was wondering if it's possible to buy them separately. I imagine you have to go for the Esseesse wheels to get the brakes to fit as well.

Re: Esseesse Brakes

You can buy the discs, but if its anything like the A500s, it'll be over 300 a pair. Tarox, Brembo or similar aftermarket parts may save you a bit.

As for calipers, do you have Brembo ones? If so they should be the same as SS. (I've seem Brembo calipers behind claw wheels but its much tighter that my A500c SS).

Edit: Looking at Abarthisti, the original press release says perforated discs and high performance pads. If you have drilled discs you may already have that setup!

Re: Esseesse Brakes

From what I could see on the Demo car it is definitely Brembo callipers, however it's not got the floating drilled discs.

Also the press release mentions the Koni FSD shocks, However it's not fitted with them.

Re: Esseesse Brakes

The Supersport comes with Brembo's as standard but I did think the discs looked a little on the small side.

Re: Esseesse Brakes

I've found you can get a set of front floating Discs from TMC, just need to find out if there's any difference in the Calipers and the rear discs and pads. Although the Esseesse lot only mentions there's rear perforated discs which are what's already fitted to the Super Sport.

Anyone able to clarify this?

Re: Esseesse Brakes

I'll know for sure in around two weeks when my kit arrives. But I think they are the same, and only the pads are changed.
