3D-printed brake caliper ready for the road
Nearly a year after Bugatti announced that it was working on a 3D-printed brake caliper, it released a video of the finished product in action.
Bugatti has been working on creating a 3D-printed brake caliper for its high-speed models like the Divo or Chiron since January, and just last week it posted a video of the titanium part in action.
The four-and-a-half-minute-long clip features the caliper undergoing a test simulating a vehicle braking from a speed of 249 mph, while the test disc reaches 1,877°F (1,025°C) – a temperature that created quite the light show of sparks and glowing metal.
Expect to see this brake caliper make its way into luxury models this coming year.
