Sales of the 2011 Mustang GT’s optional Brembo Package exceeding our expectations

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Sales of the 2011 Mustang GT's optional Brembo Package are exceeding expectations and is selling "substantially above" the Track Pack last year, according to the PR team of Ford Motor Co. No figures were revealed.

Powered by the all-new 412hp 5.0-liter V-8 engine, the Mustang GT is the archrival of the Chevrolet Camaro SS and Dodge Challenger SRT8.

The Camaro SS and Challenger SRT8 offer Brembo brakes as standard equipment. It is believed that the customers in the rear-drive performance coupe segment, which includes the Nissan 370Z and Hyundai Genesis Coupe, like to speed up, corner hard, and stop well.

For now, the Mustang GT is the acknowledged leader of this pack but it isn't likely to hold onto this position since the next Camaro will soon be equipped with GM's new rear-drive Alpha platform.

This model is slated to arrive in 2014 but before that, a slimmer, go-faster Z28 will arrive using the existing Zeta platform that will compete with vehicles such as the Ford Shelby Mustang GT500, which will feature a 6.2-liter supercharged LSA V-8.

Here is what the $1695 Brembo Package includes: Front 14-inch Brembo vented rotors with Brembo four-piston calipers; Rear 11.8-inch vented rotors with four-piston calipers; Unique 19-inch wheels; Summer performance tires; Unique suspension; Unique electronic stability control and steering tuning.
