Ford Mustang - Wheels

Serious stopping power

A specially created, high-performance braking system incorporates four-piston front brake calipers and ventilated discs, the performance of which is linked to a series of sophisticated electronic safety and driver assistance technologies. The 5.0-litre V8 GT is equipped with an even higher specification: 6-piston Brembo™ front calipers that bite down on 15" vented rotors.

Confidence in challenging conditions

AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control (ESC) is designed to give you greater control of your vehicle. Sensors constantly monitor the speed of each individual wheel, as well as the vehicle’s direction and steering angle. ESC precisely balances braking power between each individual wheel and can also reduce power from the engine. This helps counter understeer and oversteer, making your vehicle more stable and easier for you to control. ESC and Traction Control can also reduce the risk of wheelspin in wet or icy conditions. Press the ESC button once to disengage Traction Control, or twice to reduce the level of assistance of ESC. Press and hold the button for more than five seconds to fully disable the ESC system. The choice is yours.

The system constantly monitors and adjusts the power delivered to the vehicle’s individual wheels ensuring maximum contact and grip when you’re accelerating.
