Keeping the car on the ground is a challenge at that high speed. Taking to the task are rear-mounted wings and electronic suspensions that adjust ride height in accordance with vehicle speed. It requires brutal force to bring to halt all that horsepower, and AP has provided the Spano with carbon-ceramic 15-inch brake discs and six-piston calipers. Forced-air cooling system keeps the disc’s temperatures under control during vigorous braking.
